Incoming!

It's been a while since I got to say Incoming! Two years ago, I gave my son my 42mm, orange Planet Ocean. It was the 232.30.42.21.01.003 with the 8500 movement. Great watch and I'm glad I gave it to him but, I missed having a Planet Ocean myself. So..... I found one after scouring the For Sale sections of a couple of forums. I found a BNIB for a good price and pulled the trigger. Assuming the transaction happens without a hitch, I should have it Monday or Tuesday. Here's a photo from the listing. I'm looking forward to having an Omega again!
