A few poor pics of mine that arrived today:
Honestly, I'm at a loss for words to describe it. In some light, it's shinier than my GS, which I didn't think was possible. The hands, hour markers and overall subtlety of the GS are top notch (in my opinion), but the SMP dial and bezel are remarkable in their own right. Everything is so crisp. I can see multiple reflections of the lumed hour markers on the dial when the light is just right. The waves are distinct and obvious...or they're invisible. The last two sentences I wrote probably make no sense, but you just have to see it for yourself.
The case is very nice (though not Zaratsu-polished nice), with different finishes and interesting curves, angles, and flat surfaces. I used to think that the Breitling SuperOcean Heritage was, by far, the "dressiest" dive watch in this price range, but I'm not so sure anymore. It's beautiful to the extent that the miscellaneous scratches and dings that are sure to come will bother me (probably a great deal). I don't think that's a good thing.
A couple smallish negatives: (1) while the bracelet is comfortable and substantial, the endlinks have a funny hump to them that looks strange to me; and (2) the clasp just seems too big and clunky. That's it. Everything else is excellent.
I am VERY happy.
