Hello All, I just got a Planet Ocean Chrono, I love it! This is my first "real" watch, I must say I`m very happy.

Though I have some quesitions, if you own a POC please help to answer:

Winding the watch: can I overwind, or it has a safety feature to protect overwinding?
Bracelet: I sized the watch and it seems to be ok, but I`m not sure I kept it balanced. I have 7 full size links on the top and 6 on the bottom (3 removable on top, 2 at bottom). Shall I swap it?
Polishing: is it safe to use Cape Cod for polishing on this bracelet?

On the back of the watch, I have "Professional", I do not see this on the PO. Do you have this too? (see pics)

Thanks in advance, I`m glad to join the proud Omega owners community.

L.

Congrats! I'll answer two of your questions...
- Don't worry about over-winding it... just wind it until the crown won't turn anymore.
- I wouldn't use a capecod cloth as it will polish out the brushed finish.

Well not exactly. The crown will keep turning even if the watch is fully wound, it's an automatic not a manual. 50 or so turns of the crown and you'll be fully wound. No worries of over-winding.

Everything looks right on your watch. You can always change the links on your bracelet but if it's comfortable there's no need. Good luck and enjoy your new watch!

From what I recall, the word 'PROFESSIONAL' on the bracelet is availablbe on the 45.5 PO and 45.5 POC. It is not found on the 42mm version.

Congrats on your POC! I am still enamored with mine that I picked up last christmas! She is still my favoritie Omega from my humble collection.

As far as the bracelet. Its always better to have more links on the 12 o'clock side of the watch. I have 7.5 links on the 12 o'clock side and 6 links on the 6 o'clock side. It will keep the clasp and head of the watch more balanced on the wrist.

Levko, I was a little confused when I asked this question here as well. My POC crown WILL in fact stop turning after you wind it beyond some point. I became very leery of winding it too much after I started to feel any tension.

WM, I'm guessing the regular PO doesn't stop winding like the POC does. I think my 2234 can't be overwound either.

Wonder if the nature of the Chrono requires a different winding function? :think:

I keep my watch on a winder now so it doesn't really affect me anymore, but I generally would have only hand wound it if it had been off my wrist for at least a day, 10 times or so, and let my wrist do the rest!
