    Next watch Dilema your thoughts please.

    Hey fellow watch nuts..

    Posting this in the hope some like minded folks may be able to help out.
    I know its ultimately my decision and choice.
    I am thinking about my next watch .
    I have a very hard act to follow in my Orange planet Ocean Chronograph
    Its every watch I will ever need from the 45.5 mm width to the 19.6 thickness .
    With the huge arrow hands to the see through case back.
    The bracelet is sublime.

    I also like a bit of colour in my watches if possible hence the orange Poc.
    I have had a big cull just recently and trying to get down to just 2 maybe 3 watches..I had 30 at one point and sold them off to only rebuy most again .
    I need to get off this crazy rollercoaster as its consuming my life.
    I still love watches and will always be interested in them.
    So I am looking to go high end with a few .
    I like big watches , I know some on here don't but that's just my taste.
    So here's my collection of shall I say nicer watches.
    The Planet Ocean 9300
    Seiko Ananta spring drive
    Seiko Spring Drive Tuna.
    I absolutely love the Seikos they are awesome too quality watches .
    The Spring Drive in my opinion is of the highest quality .

    Now onto my dilemma.
    I have been looking at another Omega as I just love them but as I said I cannot decide .
    The new generation of Planet Oceans Chronographs in my opinion are not as nice as what I have.
    I have been eyeing up the Good Planet with the orange numbers on the bezel. which I think is very nice , but it's only 43.5mm , ok I know we are only talking about 2mm here on the width and a few mm on the depth.
    Also anyone know if these have been discontinued by Omega.


    Having not seen one in the metal can anyone who owns on chime in please with your thoughts ..

    Another watch I have been eyeing up is the Rolex Deepsea.
    Again huge watch .

    Here's a few pics of my watches.

    Thanks for reading my story .

    What about a used 2500 PO, nice big, like your 9300, but a lot slimmer or a 46mm Breitling superocean heritage?

    I would go for the 9900 in blue.
    You would then have black, white, orange and blue watches for every conceivable mood and occasion, with the added bonus of a newer Omega movement.
    Beautiful orange PO Chrono btw.

    Well for larger Omegas, there aren't that many choices outside of the PO but the Diver's 300 can still be had in a 44.5 chrono, it is certainly one of my favorites. There is a very cool grey/yellow if you want to add color, or the classic black or blue, blue might be nice to add to your collection.

    Or I'd look at Breitling where there are many options for larger piece.

    I'm like you, I prefer a larger watch. 44-46mm is my sweet spot and I like larger too but often they get too heavy to wear for long periods of time.

    Thanks for that but not only does the diameter have to be big but also the thickness .
    As I said my 9300 orange a very hard act to follow.

    Cheers..
    Yes the 45mm is also a sweet spot for me and the 19mm thickness is also a big plus for me..
    I have had a Breitling super avenger in the past but was to blingy in the end and the hands are to small for the size of the watch.
    Been looking at the 300 chrono it is a contender in blue I think.
    See what happens.
