    The stories you have about your watches make them much more valuable than they really are.

    Re: Planet Ocean 2500 Appreciation Thread

    Hey all,

    I'm in the process of joining the PO2500 club. I currently have 2 PO8500s and was determined to track down a 42mm PO2500d version. I found one through one of our forum sponsors here. Apparently it's been very lightly used and comes with all paperwork and boxes. The only "issue" is that the red dot is missing, which bothered me at first but I soon got over it.

    There's a 5 day return policy if I'm not happy with the watch. So that's reassuring. Is there anything I should do within the 5 day period to ensure it's worth keeping? I was thinking taking it to Omega in NYC and having them do a diagnostic. The fact that the red dot is missing makes me paranoid that an unqualified person maybe did a service on it or tampered with it. Should I just go ahead and have Omega do a full service even if it's running great and keeping good time? I feel like this would be similar to starting fresh with a new watch and I'd know exactly what's done. Since it's a watch I don't plan on selling, I wouldn't mind doing this.

    What else should I check while I have the watch during the 5 day return period?

    PS...I don't have the watch yet. It should come tomorrow

    My two cents... Do you trust the seller? As the seller is a forum sponsor I've got to believe you're 100% ok. That said I'd recommend a service anyway as a best practice.

    Did you not ask why or doesn't the seller know. In some cases those red dots wear off without being touched. Are they still replaced with blue dots after a service? How old is it.

    And can you swim? If you can afford it, and it gives you peace of mind then get it serviced.

    A lot of times when dealers get these in to resell, they don't know the previous history. This is the case here. The vendor's best guess was that it was not opened for service, but rather someone opened it to authenticate the piece. I guess a fresh service by Omega wouldn't hurt. This was I'll know exactly what was done and who did it.

    Watch should be delivered today. Will post pics here later.

    I definitely miss mine. Long story but flipped it with dealer for AT. I will probably circle back at some point and get it again or the ceramic version....

    Yeh, if he's not aware of the history, which is pretty normal, it could wear off. I'm pretty sure mine did before it's service. Whatever, the blue dot is gone now too. Out of interest, why 2 x 8500? Different sizes, or colours?

    Yessir. Of the 2 8500s, one is black and one is orange and the incoming one is a 2500d with black dial and non-orange numberals. I think I have a unhealthy love for POs. The money I spent on this latest 2500d was supposed to be for a Speedmaster Pro but I just couldn't find myself loving that watch yet. Maybe in time it'll grow me on. But I'm not one to get a watch just because everyone else loves it.

    The PO is addictive. I've resisted any of the 8500, but may not be able to hold out for much longer... Awaiting the new collection, which I'm not overly keen on, but I would still be interested to see them, in case they've held back something that isn't Fisher Price-esque... And I've just noticed your signature! Sorry about that. I didn't see it when I asked the question.
