    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.

    Yes. I'm 7.5" and think it's perfectly sized.

    Thanks for the tip, would that be the one in CBD, or one of the other ones?

    They are in stock on the Omega site. Even if it says out of stock, if you click the watch and go to its specific page, it show you can purchase!! Go for it guys!

    My Omega Boutique in Pittsburgh PA said they are not expecting the watches until November so I guess I’ll have to wait to see them in person

    Sorry these aren't great - I'll take better this weekend - have to get out the door but snapped a few iPhone pics while getting ready.

    First impressions - looks like all the best pics/videos released so far. Black is the deep polished black you're used to from the 8800/8900 black PO's. Waves pop out at angles in the light, disappear quite a bit straight on/dimmer light. Enamel bezel really pops.

    That's my just-got-it impression. Very happy at the moment.

    Better/more to come after work tomorrow or Saturday....wish it were here earlier.

    Then this watch comes along and sorta changes things.

    Is this watch large enough for a 7.5 to 7.75 inch wrist?

    Edit to ask what the lug width is?
    Yes it would fit well. It’s bigger than the prior SMP.
