    Re: New 2018 SMP(w)

    I am toggling between the black SMP and the blue and I can't seem to make up my mind. In my collection, I have the Bond SMP 2220.80. Should I go for the black since I have the blue Bond?
    Decision...

    Re: New 2018 SMP(w)

    Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your great story with us. I am quite partial to the black dial with stainless steel bracelet myself, and think that would be my choice. I just love that bracelet, which is so unique not only to Omega but to any brand I have seen. And thanks for all the great photos as well.

    They seem to always have every single model available at the local boutique, and it is so tempting!!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    The original was a dark, Navy blue. In many light conditions it was almost indistinguishable from black. Beside needing a GADA piece, the black of this generation more closely fit the original aesthetic/feel to me in most lighting conditions.

    However, this ceramic wave dial is truly uncharted territory. When I saw the blue in multiple showrooms, it looked like a medium, Royal blue.... far from Navy. However, in the real world, it's difficult to pin down what it is. It does tend to wear darker unless in bright light.

    I still do not regret black; in fact, I love it more after wearing it non stop than I did the day I got it.

    However, you gotta get these dials in actual daylight and some darker rooms too, if at all possible. Real world lighting conditions. In the real world, I like the blue face and silver face significantly more than I liked them in-showroom.

    I agree with the above. If you have the blue 2220.80 go with black so you have a great 1-2 punch.

    Yes, that's what I have decided too. The black dial will be very versatile and will go along with the Bond in my collection.
