    I need to see it for myself iinsic as even the 42mm
    2500PO doesn't do it for Me. The size together with the thickness just doesn't appeal to me. How much more the 39.5PO. That's just me anyway, just a personal choice.😊

    That's close enough to my favorites, the Planet Ocean LM LE or Ti Planet Ocean 8500 LM, but with more antimagnetic and adjustable properties.

    - as it has a prety good deployant :

    Attachment 9854642

    The watch originally came with this rubber strap:-

    Attachment 9854354

    (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...

    Looks very nice. I have thick rubber on tang with my PO as well as steel bracelet. But always though the rubber with stitching and deployment looked very nice

    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
    Huh. I didn't even know this model existed. And you say the case thickness is less than the 2201.50? How is that possible with the new movement?

    If it is 40mm and at least the same thickness as the 2201.50, you have given me another model to consider.

    Per my erroneous post above, are you sure the case thickness is less than the 2201.50? How is that possible with the new movement? My biggest complaint with the new models is the case thickness and I'd definitely consider a 40mm if it is around the same thickness as the 2201.50.

    Yep the PO 8800 is actually thinner than the 2201.50 by a hair! It is only 1 barrel or 55hr power reserve and it has the traditional quick-set date function instead of the bidirectional jumping hour, but it is 2mm thinner than the 8900.

    I like that quick set date. All of the new models PO came with quick set date?

    No, the 8900 has the jumping hour like the 8500. The 8800 which is in the PO 39.5 is more like the 2500 movement.
