Commanders Watch ..... thoughts?

To those that own the watch , are you happy with it , is it what you expected ?

I have not been able to inspect one close up and personal but I am interested

I like the watch. I just wish they left off all of the Bond marketing since there's no Bond movie out. Seems pointless to release a Bond LE watch right now.

I think its a cool watch and looks better on the bracelet for sure. Maybe an all blue nato would look good. Congrats!

Don, I have to trim my NATO strap a bit for my liking, which I will do, but I also have a blue and white strap that looks quite sharp that I will add into the mix.

This watch lends itself to multiple strap combos , which I like .....

I think the jury is still out on some of the recent “specials” that Omega has released. You prolly guessed as much when nobody stepped forward for 2 days to comment on your original post.

It’s a color combo that’s unique and appeals to some, but not an Omega staple like the blue or black wave Seamaster dials. If Omega drops it from the lineup then we’ll know it wasn’t a top sales hitter. Right now it’s sold out on their website.


But if you like it, what else matters?

This is a LE watch so regardless if it's a top seller, it's going to be dropped eventually.

agreed, thus it's a nice addition to my Omega lineup ! besides it's a great 'summer watch' given the various bands I have to wear with it.
