This 100%^^^It's nice enough, but for the price increase you're getting a worse watch overall. Having aluminum instead of ceramic, while it might look cool, is undoubtedly worse. They could've gone with a matte ceramic. Then they get rid of the display back, which is fine, but they don't even update it with a new hippocampus or anything, just a boring caseback.
They ditch the gorgeous bracelet and offer the Milanese, which while looking decent is very clearly another downgrade.
Titanium is cool, but when other features are worse than the standard Seamaster, that price hike is ludicrous.
I like the look of it (apart from the bracelet), and the domed sapphire looks great, but scratchy-scratch-prone Grade 2 titanium plus a fade/scratch-prone aluminium bezel insert, and all for more than twice the price of the standard verison. Hmmmmmmm.... :think:
When it first came out I initially thought the 43mm ceramic cased/grade 5 ti version was way over-priced, but in comparison to this one it's a positive bargain! I dunno what Omega are smoking with their pricing at times.
