    I have yet to see them in person but it's the same case when Rolex released the Maxi dial, super glossy ceramic bezel big font and supercase.

    It was a understated design to a "LOOK AT ME" diver.

    Omega's first and second gen PO been a toolwatch with the matte dial and bezel, now it's disco ball with full bling.

    Could be a good or bad thing, depending on what you need.

    Accounting is apparently some hardcore desk diving. Will never refinish this watch. Thinking of getting an Erika’s Originals Trident strap with red stitching though

    Nothing unusual here I have similar desk dive marks on my PO 2500 clasp.

    They actually are more visible at the beginning but tend to blend more the more the clasp gets scratched. It becomes a kind of patina as it goes and is less noticeable than when the clasp is brand new and gets the first scratches.

    Good point! It’ll take on a “natural” brushed finish

    Thanks I agree! I’m a strong advocate of wearing watches you buy, sad that that has to be clarified in the watch world lol.

    It's inevitable! That's the only detriment of a massive clasp.
