PO 39.5mm 8800 Blue 600m

Would love to hear everyoneís take on this reference including: wearability and comfort, comments on blue dial vs black and bracelet. Really like this watch and I think itís the perfect size. I would be able to get a good discount off msrp, around 31%. Thoughts, comments and especially wrist pics are appreciated.

I thought it wore just a tad too small. (6.5) I’m sure others would disagree. I love 39/40 in most brands but this one seemed to come up short. Micro adjust has three positions, I swapped out the larger model clasp which had a couple more adjusts. You will lose on flipping even with 31off.

I owned the black dial, I love omega and wanted to love the 39 PO. But for me something was just off, I don’t know if it’s the dial size or thickness but it just seemed to small and tall, felt like a hockey puck. I’ve owned both a SD and SDc and I loved them and they measure pretty close to the PO. I own a speedy and the proportions are perfect on that. I would defiantly try it on before you buy. Hope that helps.

I've tried the 39.5mm PO's....I think they fit pretty great on a small wrist (I have a 6.375" wrist). The black is what you'd expect if you've ever seen the LE Liquid Metal PO from before in 42mm but I think the small aesthetic differences I still prefer the LE (hence why I kept mine). The blue however is a real stunner in real life....IMO doesn't photograph all that well but a very dynamic dial/ceramic bezel insert. I do think they still sit a smidge too tall and wish they just went with non-see through casebacks to trim this down further.....the 2500c movement LM PO LE thickness is just perfect.....this is why I haven't bought a new one as of yet since I got the previous limited edition.

I have the 39.5mm PO in black. It's by far one of the most worn, loved, and perfectly sized (for my 6.5" wrist) watches in my collection. I absolutely love it but as you can see from other commentators, your milage may vary. Once adjusted properly, the bracelet is super comfortable and I don't find the watch wants to move from being centered on the top of the wrist. It's also the thinnest PO ever made at a hair over 14mm if I remember correctly.

Best of luck with your decision. I traded in my Speedmaster Pro for it as I always felt it was too big for my wrist and just never did bond with it. I have not regretted that decision for one second.

I think this size is great - I've tried it on multiple times in different shops now - and fits really well. Just deciding whether to pull the trigger..

Check out the version with the leather / rubber strap - the omega store i spoke to on Sunday claimed the strap is fully waterproof - even for diving, which I think is a pretty unsung trait for a leather strap. Surprised is not more popular to be honest.

I tried it in an OB. Size wise (width) I find it fits my 6.3 wrist fine, and I like it. It's the height of the watch that stops me from buying it. I find it's a bit too tall for my taste. Otherwise, it's a nice watch.

Black or blue? I like the blue one.

This I agree with this: the bezel is quite thick which means that the watch looks abnormally small below 42mm
