    Thanks that's great. I was only looking on the Omega spring bar page. So I'll just buy these "Swiss Made 1.8 mm Thick Double Flange 21 mm Spring Bar"?

    OME-SPRING-BAR-05
    $3.73 each, 10 or more $2.73 each

    This is the one. I'm still using the one that came with the watch. This is a spare.

    He he. Believe me, I've read this thread forwards and backwards. Realized that no one here liked my Rolex comments, so tried to put it back on topic.

    Most everything about this watch has been covered, but did not really see comments on the Omega strap and deployant. Just pictures. I know what they look like, having visited the boutique twice this month.

    Hi guys,

    got my SM300 about 1,5 months ago and I couldn't be happier with it. In fact, there is no other way to describe it than just saying it's perfect. This is the first watch I've ever seen which I wouldn't change in any way.

    Wanted to give my pros and cons list of the watch:

    PROS:
    • Domed sapphire. I've always loved them and this one makes no exception.
    • Cream-colored indices. Gives the watch a really distinct look and separates it from the too-modern-for-my-liking look of AT and PO.
    • The subtleness of the dial and especially the Omega-logo. No blingy metallic parts to shine.
    • White second hand. I love the contrast that is created between it and the indices.
    • No date on dial. Gives the dial perfect harmony and balance.
    • Simple typography on the dial. Not too many fonts, which sadly is very common in many watches.
    • No 'automatic' text on the dial.
    • The lack of AR coating on the outer side of the sapphire. The gloss is just beautiful together with the bezel and also it prevents the ugly look of a scratched AR.
    • Perfect case size for my wrist, not too big and not too small, just perfect.
    • Quick adjustment bracelet. I use it all the time as I've always had the problem of sometimes wanting the bracelet to be a bit loose and sometimes quite snug.
    • Polished center links. I love the way they make the watch a bit more dressy and also they complement the gloss of the sapphire and bezel nicely.
    • The angular look of the case. I've always disliked to roundness of the PO case and bracelet.
    • The hour-hand quick adjustment for time zones. Just perfect when you travel.
    • The contrast of the vintage-look front and the modern state-of-the-art look of the back.
    • Anti-magnetic and accurate movement. I really love knowing that the movement is pretty much the best there is on the market in this price range. My watch has been accurate to +2 seconds during this 1,5 month period.


    CONS:
    • Has completely killed my interest in any other watches. I've sold my whole collection of after getting this and for the first time ever, I don't have any watches that I would even consider buying. So essentially, it has killed my watch hobby ;)

    Especially not those on this forum. I think ALL of the reasons you gave above for why you wear Rolex are awesome. But most Rolex wearers I know don't buy them for those reasons, except maybe #1 and #7.
    That could be true - there are certain circles (like the banking scene in Zurich) where you need to have a Rolex to "belong".
    I'm a bit worried about Omega's recent price policy - their co-ax offerings are really in the same price-category as Rolex - perhaps deservedly so, as the movements are really top-notch, but nevertheless: I believe the image or Omega as a good bang for the buck company is breaking down and people will view them the same as Rolex.

    You should write a letter of complaint to Omega

    Sorry, I wasn't exactly honest. I'm dreaming of the Sedna Gold version of the SM300

    you should include that in the letter of complaint - perhaps they'll give you a discount
