    - as it has a prety good deployant :

    The watch originally came with this rubber strap:-

    (which I far prefer, & have even bought a spare) ...but can't find a suitable deployant to fit it - not even 3rd party - I'm scared that I'll drop it without a deployant, and that constant taking off/putting on for hot showers is going to split the rubber at the large-ish holes for the 7mm buckle tang sooner or later...

    I know this might be regarded as heresy by some here, but I have found a PO I like better than my 2201.50 ... the new 39.5mm Gen3 model. The size wears better on my 7.75" wrist than the 42mm PO, the OAL is only 45mm (because of "female" endlinks) and it is slightly thinner even than the PO 2500. Add in the ceramic bezel with Liquidmetal markings, the ceramic dial with applied markers, the screw-and-pin bracelet and adjustable clasp (and the clasp tines fold almost entirely into the clasp, just like the original PO, so it sits more comfortably on the wrist), the best lume on an Omega since the Gen1 POs and ... well, I've realized I no longer miss my old 2201.50. I've moved on. Please forgive this post in a Gen1 PO appreciation thread, but I have been one of the more appreciative of fans of this venerable watch. And, while it still is one of the best divers I've ever owned, I've finally found one that bests it for me.

    My original on bracelet, bought by my wife for my 40th, has had full service and refurb, next to my very recently acquired xmas present, I had my black bezel on rubber for holidays and when I took it to have it changed back, found the orange one and before I even said to the wife about going in to look at it, she was doing the maths in her head as I'd been looking for a while lol

    I really love my wife lol
