Thanks - it does pop. Not quite like a TT Sub though.

I had this but recently sold it to Tourneau for $1,700

Does Tourneau pay fair money for watches?

No. No one does. Considered a trade in of my DSSD at a dealer I've bought two watches from and they offered, $6k on my DSSD which still had all stickers intact, in like new condition.
All dealers will try to rob you unless you know someone, personal sales are better.

I absolutely love Planet Oceans but I think I'd get a leather strap; I just can't get on with metal ones (My Seiko diver has one).

Either a PO or a Tudor North Flag one day.

Awesome. I wish I would have thought to get pictures like this everywhere I have worn mine. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

I have a 6.75" wrist, so a tad on the smaller side in general.

The PO was too large for me, even in 42mm size. It's lug-to-lug length was too long and it's simply a mountain of metal in terms of height.

The new seamaster 300m is ruined by it's lume to me. It's made to look vintage, I get, but the lume itself is unattractive in person. It actually photographs better.

The speedmaster pro is the best fitting Omega for me - it's curved lugs hug the wrist best, and it's sizing is perfect. However, I want a large second hand, so this is on hold for now.

Overall I walked away dis-satisfied. There wasn't an Omega that fit me and filled the bill at the same time. My favorite to look at in pictures is a blue PO 42mm on a blue rubber strap - but it just doesn't sit right on the wrist for me.
I to have a narrow wrist. Just curious your opinion on the newish 36mm IWC Pilot watch ? And what do you think of the Omega Globemaster? Not the style your describing but curious what you though.

Between the two of those def go with the PO. I wanted a North Flag for a while and then when I went into the store to look at it it ended up being very underwhelming and kind of bland. It looks much better in pictures then it does in person

I did this trip across Asia and Europe last Fall and thouht it would be cool to do something as a tribute. So I did the landmarks. All those pictures were pretty much just Italy, Iceland, and Amsterdam.

Aqua Terra

I recently purchased my first Omega. It's a Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M powered by the OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8500.
