Hello I own an Omega Planet Ocean and a Rolex Seadweller. I Like the Omega better! The Luminous markers are more brilliant. The overall size of watch is more substantial 44.5mm. The Stainless band is much more substantial, then my Rolex. Both are great dive watches. The anti glare is nice and I have never scratched mine in the 2 years of ownership. If you want a watch that is elegant and rugged and a true COSC certified chrono go with this watch you will love it!

This watch is really beautiful, very solid and of very high quality like all Omegas. The only bad thing about it is that once you have this one you'll want the black one too. It will last a lifetime.

I've owned my omega since February and really delighted with it, still cant stop having a peak at it every opportunity i get.
Solid,substantial feel to it, a joy to wear.
I previously owned a sea dweller for 30 years and loved it but they are terrible time keepers, this omega is far more accurate and definitely nicer to look at.
The new roller's have big wide shoulders that i feel detract from the image, they overpower the view of the watch which is a shame.
I suppose the Rolex diehards will be quick to point out that new rollers are better timekeepers which may be so but the image is still flawed in my view.

The definition of oversized is disputed by horologists but even the tea party zealots of jewelers will admit a case has to be at least 42mm to be classified oversized.

I've owned the first edition

The 45mm PlanetOcean meets the definition since the semi glossed orange bezel is a head turner. Orange / orange accented watches denote action, underwater diving and push the boundaries of being worn as a dress watch. If you don't haven't seen one in person, trust me when I compare it the same orange as the Firefox webbrowser log. That vivid.
It is heavier than most, 8+ ounces (a half pound) with the steel bracelet

It's thick piece, the thickest Seamaster I've owned and taller than the blue chrono I used to think was too thick.

Owned the first gen model since 2006 (avoided the overpriced 007 / Bond versions, klass with a capital K) and it wears just as nicely and comfortably despite the years.
SEE MY UPLOADED PICK FOR AN IDEA OF THE PROPORTIONS

TIP: Acquire a bracelet resizer, 16 PCS Watch Tool Kit the 24mm bracelet is fairly easy to disassemble after soaked or swilled in warm water to loosen the links from dead skin residue.
Follow the directional arrows imprinted inside the bracelet.
That bracelet kit has more than you need but the cost is affordable for anyone buying a PO and its about the same price as the plastic bracelet pin pusher that is all you really need.

If installing your own strap, BE WARNED, the weight can result in a strap snap at the lug even if just swinging a trim hammer.
The case is double lugged and straps with four lugs are made in 24mm diameters for extra grip in case you wear left and drive with a farmers tan.
When I had a strap the traditional single lugs, I can squuueeeeze a 26mm spring bar with ample frustration for an assured fit.

But, it requires a decent pair of dykes to cut and ruin the springbar out for removal after sliding the strap to expose enough for cutting.

Only 2 stars for this watch. While i do not own this particular brand, i do own a Planet Ocean 2200.50.00 which has the DOUBLE ANTI GLARE ( anti glare on inside and outside of crystal ). The watch looks great, no complaints about that.

Take note before you buy any of these watches from Omega that have the Double anti glare. THEY SCRATCH EASILY !! Mine scratched after 2 months and Omega will not warranty it. In fact, if you go to their website, they don't even have a customer service number and it states this:

"Due to the considerable interest shown in the OMEGA brand, our staff is answering an unprecedented number of inquiries. Therefore, you should expect a response time of at least four weeks. We thank you for your patience and understanding." ONLY THROUGH EMAIL

I feel that after spending $4000 on a watch, that they should replace it or at least re-imburse the cost. They do not and will not, so you are stuck with a scratched watch.

Save your bucks and get a ROLEX or Tag. Customer service on these Omega's are NILL !
