Finally bought an Omega after all this time.

Snapped one quick pic...left it with the store for them to ship to me, with arrival on Tuesday. Liked it in pics, but really dig it in the metal.

Very much looking forward to getting this one on the wrist. [emoji106]

Looks awesome! Congratulations and I hope the wait isn’t too long with the delivery!! :cheers:

Just bought this same exact one. I can tell you - it is one of the very few watches I knew would stay in the collection right away. Just a spectacular piece and very well done. I so badly wanted the rose gold YM, this gives a similar look at a fraction of the price and without the worry of the OF pieces fitting. Get some good pics up when on wrist!

Thanks, all!

Whatís funny is that while Iíd thought the YG/steel version of this watch looked great in pics, I never seriously considered pursuing one of these guys in any configuration.

Ran into the Sedna/steel version by happenstance today, tried it on and my immediate reaction was, ďYEP! Coming home with me.Ē

The rubber strap is outstanding and I had the same thought you did, lbhphx23, when mentally comparing it to the oysterflex, and the value proposition for this watch is really solid.

Plus, Iíve been getting bored waiting for the ďprivilegeĒ of Rolex taking gobs of money from me for watches I actually want of late, so itís good to try something new.

I definitely recommend trying it on...more impressive on the wrist than in pics. Thanks and enjoy the hunt!

Iíve tried it on. Theyíre probably getting tired of me coming in. And I agree way more impressive on the wrist. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...f3ddf84fc6.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c581387bd2.jpg

Nice! I’ve not cared much for any of the divers Omega has offered after the 2254.50, but the new SMP’s are stunning.

ap1 27 April 2019 03:45 AM

Well done, great execution of TT there

Redadmiral2 28 April 2019 03:39 PM

A non pink shirt would make for better pics.

Yeah-stunning watch-wish they'd have put some red in the Seamaster on the dial-I've had the hulk-but I think the new omega is a sub killer.

Jakx 30 April 2019 02:55 AM

Nice!

Finally got it on the wrist today. Really, really comfortable watch and I am impressed with the finishing. I like the ceramic dial and scalloped bezel. [emoji106]

Everything about the purchase experience was great and the presentation box is impressive. Superb on my wrist and the price to happiness ratio is solid. Great value here from my perspective.

This particular combo looks great! Congrats!

DonnieD 2 May 2019 11:57 PM

Arrived yesterday. So happy with this one.

Thanks! The OEM rubber strap is really impressive. Comfortable and hugs my wrist perfectly. Huge fan and definitely recommend it.
