    Planet Ocean 2500 Appreciation Thread

    Whilst on vacation in Cancun I thought it would be fun to spin up a thread for the 2500.

    We all (at least mostly I think) love the Planet Ocean. And while 2500 v 8500 is sometimes debated and there's all sorts of speculation around what's next for the PO line at Basel 2016, I'm finding newfound appreciation for the original 2500.

    So, share a story. Ask a question. And by all means post pics! :)

    Here's a photo to start. More to follow.

    Cheers! I hope everyone is having a great week!!

    Love my 2500 XL - classic looks and thinner than the 8500 as well.

    I only wish they'd make a clasp with micro adjustments, that would make it perfect for me!

    I am biased but I think the 2500 is much better looking than the 8500. I used to lust after the Rolex Submariner but once I tried one on I knew that 40mm was just too small for me. Once I saw the POC XL I had to have one. Now I do. As a matter of fact I just added a polished Steib mesh bracelet but haven't taken any pictures. There are other much better examples on this forum but I'll share this one of my POC 2500 XL

    Not fair while so many of us are still at work (in the Americas, anyway). I'm jealous. Nice watch, too!

    I wrote this paean to the PO 2500 almost four years ago: In Memoriam: Planet Ocean cal. 2500

    Here was mine, a 2500D XL size. It's now sold though and I have moved on to a 42mm titanium 8500 caliber. I liked this one a lot but I like the 8500 better.

    I didn't take to the PO when it was first released. However it grew on me and is now the one watch I own I would keep if all others had to go.

    I've had it on the mesh for most of the time I've owned it. I've just ordered the PloProf clasp to go with the mesh to gain some security and micro adjustment.

    Enjoy Cancun and try to relax.

    I own two 2500 PO XLs. I couldn't decide between orange and black. I love my black PO it's my first Omega and still my favorite. Recently put it on mesh and love it even more. It's an amazing watch thin, accurate and classic styling.
