If Omega kept the same style/size He valve from the SMPc and used it on this model then I’d pick one up in a heartbeat. The hideous He valve on this one ruins the whole watch for me, which is unfortunate since I love everything else about it.
WOuld love to see pictures of the back case!
Planet Ocean 8900 43.5
Planet Ocean 2500D 42mm
Planet Ocean 2500D 45mm
I am so pissed they only made these 42mm? No love for the thin wristed Omega! How about a 36 or 39???
Everyone is surprised at the early deliveries after everyone has been told October/November (POSSIBLY late September) including AD's and boutiques - my guess is you'll be able to find some in Pittsburgh any day now.
For anyone that does like bracelets, the bracelet and clasp on this are supposed to top notch so absolutely go for it - and it looks great. And of course if you're concerned with resale, it makes more sense to buy the bracelet - It's just my very personal preference that I'm just not a bracelet guy.
Make no mistake, this is very much a no-frills basic rubber strap - but it is very comfortable, and well thought out:
- fixed keeper has some kind of metal hidden inside the top to keep it from bending out of shape over time
- floating keeper has a little nub on the inside that you sit inside the last hole on the strap so it doesn't slide around once it's on your wrist
- case integration is perfect; shape and the downward slope to hug the wrist. no surprise, Omega's done that well on rubber straps for a long time.
- the buckle is just a buckle - while of course i'd have preferred a deployant, it's a really nice buckle. Raised logo, interesting shape, finished as well as the watch with combo of brushed surfaces and polished sides - and the tang has a really great shape that both minimizes strap creasing (so far, NO strap creasing), and lets it sit really comfortably under your wrist.
Most of my watches live on leather in cooler weather, phenomenato in the summer. This one will live on the OEM rubber - love the look, and it feels great.
Thanks for the description the rubber strap krisrsolebury, appreciate it. My dealer said he would have them in stock in a week or two. I will definitely have to take a look. Love the black but want to see the rest of the colors as well.
Congrats! Could someone please measure the crystal/dial diameter?
