Bought my Seamaster last year upon release of the 8800 version. Got it on the bracelet, as it made better financial sense to me. Chose black bc I knew I'd prefer the color once I picked up the OEM rubber, having owned the previous generation SMP in blue. I put a Zealande strap on it and I didn't love the look of the blue strap combined with the blue dial.
It has all come together, as Topper called last week to say that the backorder issue was finally over and my strap was ready to ship after a half year of waiting.
Immediate feelings: the watch looks better on the strap, wears so much more comfortably, and the black dial with black rubber is a killer combination. Very sporty, but also pretty versatile.
Had the watch up for sale until now, as I was flirting with an IWC Spitfire Chronograph, but I've now reconsidered and will be keeping the Omega. If you're stuck on a color and strap/ bracelet choice, I heartily recommend this combination.
