    On the bracelet it's a definitely a watch you feel. I have the OEM rubber also and find it a better match in terms of looks and comfort though I respect the work Omega has put it into the design of the bracelet and clasp. FWIW, I think the updated adjustable clasp adds significant weight -- my Seamaster Trilogy has a lighter-weight bracelet but still suffers a bit from the chunky clasp. Definitely a trade-off.

    While I don't (yet) own one, trying the SMP 300 on in store I thought the weight of the watch head was well balanced by the hefty bracelet. The overall wrist feel was surprisingly comfortable. Do owners find that the bracelet detracts from wearability long-term?

    Everyone is different I find the bracelet very weighty especially if you got clothes covering the Watch you're better off buying it on the plastic strap

    Personal preference, but these watches look and feel best on the OEM rubber, particularly the white and grey/silver dial variants as the strap adds viewing contrast and feels better on the wrist.

    haven't seen it in person, but one advice I would give to everyone, never buy a white dial watch without seeing it in person, a lot of times they look different than pictures.
    In order I have obtained
    > Seiko Chronograph SNA013P The Great Blue l Chopard Mille Miglia GTXL Rosso Corsa l Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue Monte Carlo
    Seiko 5 SNXF01K1 Silver Fox l Seiko 5 - SNKP21J1 Middle East Edition l Longines Heritage 180th Anniversary Chrono
    Omega - Speedmaster Pro Project Alaska l G-Shock - G-9000MX-8 Mudman l Seiko Prospex SRPB51J1 Samurai
    Grand Seiko SBGJ227 Peacock l G-Shock GMWB5000GD-9

    I think that can be said for most watches.

    Example below. Same blue watch, two different photos. Omegas offical picture at the bottom.

    Saw it at my local AD. I wasn’t as impressed as I was hoping. It looked nice but I’m sticking with my Sedna two toned Seamaster on rubber.

    For those who are looking for one, Hyde Park in Newport Beach, Ca had it in stock.

    Saw it in person today. I think I have a new favorite over the blue. I took some quick smartphone shots, although it was difficult to capture under boutique lighting. The wave pattern to the dial is more subdued than previous colourways, while the contrast of the hands and overall legibility is much higher. The red "Seamaster" text also appears more defined and legible Vs the blue, where it appears to run together a bit more.

    Tried a pre production on in Melbourne last week. Stunning in person. I was going to buy on rubber, but is very nice in person on bracelet too.
