My Omega family has grown by one.
After spying this at an AD, I was bitten hard by the bug and I knew I had to have it.
I immediately sold my Rolex ref.116234 Datejust to finance the purchase this one.
It's a modern size. 39mm but because bezel is thin, it's got a lot of presence (for reference, my wrist is 16cm).
The bracelet is super-comfortable, the individual links have a lot of articulation and are shaped so that there is no hair-pulling.
The thickness is about what the DJ was. It doesn't feel like a particularly thick or absurdly heavy watch. Modern Omegas are chunky boys (as I understand, the coaxial escapement isn't ideal for thin movements) but this doesn't feel like a Planet Ocean.
The biggest selling features are the dial and the movement.
The dial is a work of art, a deep, slate-ish blue that shimmers and shifts colors. It shows off great depth via the classic pie-pan shape.
The movement is a technical triumph but what really convinced me to ditch the Rolex is the independently adjustable hour hand complication. I first became acquainted with this feature in a quartz Seamaster and it makes swapping timezones a breeze when you travel.
The elephant in the room is, of course, the fluted bezel. Thankfully, in person, it doesn't anything like Rolex's version of a fluted bezel. The bezel is so much thinner, the flutes are much shallower and tighter-packed that it looks more like a coin edge than anything. If anything, it kind of reminds me of Rolex's old "engine turned" bezels.
In short, it does everything the Rolex did, just better. If you guys and gals are looking for a semi-dressy/daily wear watch and you get a chance to check a Globemaster out, I highly recommend you do.
