Compared to a Seiko mm300. Great watch but really beauty and the beast!!!
Interesting comparison that shows how compact the 8800 is. My PO 8900 is likely more similar in size to the MM300.
Another quick update:
I took the Planet Ocean on a night dive the other week. The lume worked great in the darkness! Definitely a worthy dive watch.
I also had a scare when I helped my dive buddy fasten their tank. I scratched the PO across the rough surface of the (unpainted) steel tank, while applying quite a bit of pressure. When I realized what I had done, I was almost certain that I had seriously damaged the crystal and bezel of my PO. There was a very visible mark both at the edge of the sapphire and on the bezel. I knew of course that the steel of the tank would not be hard enough to scratch the sapphire, but I thought that the impact from the rough surface might have created little cracks and/or splinters in the crystal.
Well ... luckily this story has a good ending. The mark remained visible for a bit, but eventually came off. I think it must just have been abrasion from the steel tank leaving a stain on the PO. After some more rubbing, the mark on the PO is now entirely gone. Great sign for the quality of Omega's sapphire and ceramic!
Also a reminder that I should be a little more careful when wearing an expensive watch during physical activity...
Great write up man! Got the BB58 myself and contiplating in selling my 42mm PO
