The 2201.50 was 14.5mm with a solid caseback. The PO395 is 14.37mm with an alveol display back. If you want even thinner, buy the 18k PO395 with solid caseback. It is only 14.17mm.
The cal. 8900 is simply the master chronometer version of the cal. 8500. It has all of the same features found on the 8500, including quickset hour changes (which is to say, NON-quickset date change).
The cal. 8800 is a brand new movement. It has a single barrel, but delivers 92% of the power reserve of the double barrel cal. 8900. It has the quickset date (a plus to me, since I don't think changing back and forth to DST twice a year makes the quickset hour feature all that attractive). And it is spooky accurate. My PO395 gains about a second each week ... or less than a minute per year!

Only wear mine a couple of days a month but when I do, I wonder why I don't wear it more often. 42mm is a perfect size for me. Looks great on bracelet or strap. Gave the orange leather strap and deployant a try but went back to the bracelet. Although maybe time for the rubber strap.
Hey Rob, congrats on the 10k and the new PO. I haven't looked at them for a while so this is a bit of a leap for me to see that they went back to some level of sensible thickness. Will have a look for wristies of your piece now. Still sticking with my 45.5 2500, but that's not to say I can't eventually add one is it?

New strap on my old 2901.50.91 is taking a bit of getting used to,
Just smaller & slimmer enough to make watch head appear bigger.
So back on its original 'Jeremy Clarkson' rubber again today, & all's right with the world...

Very nice and looks great on your hand!

I'm no expert, but I understand that a different version of this strap is needed to fit the 45mm PO XL, & yet another for the GMT.
Mine fits perfectly.
