Default Hands-on The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Chronograph, Now in Grey and Orange

Not available until the back end of this year this is a serious stunner if it is on the bracelet, never been a fan of the Nato especially on a watch of this caliber.
Price: EUR 7,500 on NATO strap
EUR 7,800 on steel bracelet
And below is a link to a brief review.

That is a beauty for sure and absolutely has to be on a bracelet given its ample size.

Pros: The Omega pedigree with an incredible 54 jewelled movement. Must be an absolute pleasure to watch that sweep hand in action. A watch that would look good on the wearer dressed up or down

Cons: It's a very thick watch at 19mm and could ride high. Price is on the silly side - for me

Thanks for bringing this one to us.

Honestly like this one in both of it's forms guys !! Although
definitely would be something special on the bracelet. Think that has to
be the theme with this one, it's special. From it being a limited edition,
to that incredible movement it's yet another home run from Omega.

Ridiculously nice really. ..Thanks very very much Gary !!!

wow....
$9000 US dollars.

but given what a Rolex Daytona costs, some might consider this a bargain.

definitely needs a bracelet. not digging the nato much.

Having owned a Breitling Superocean Chronograph, I've decided that chrono dive watches are not for me. It was a lovely watch, but too chunky.

That's why I opted for the Colt Chrono quartz, manageable comfortable size and the extra added bonus of a HAQ movement of 10 SPY, and a convenient hour jump hand for changing time zones.

I also had a Tag Link Chrono as well, that one rode like a boat anchor on your wrist and the "Link" bracelet never fit right on me, either too loose, remove a link, then too tight.
