Great photos, everyone. I didn’t realize these came in different sizes. I thought they all were 41mm?

So there are 36mm and 41mm versions? Is there a 42mm as well? Does someone have both mid and full size and can show a side by side?

I think that’s my favorite version yet. Is the bezel insert brushed? Is it titanium? Thanks!

The rotating bezel on the 2231 is titanium but the bezel insert is steel just like in the other SS SMP’s

It is a Caliber 3303 with a titanium and red (Pre-Sedna) gold case. The watch is not all that commonly encountered. I purchased it about 15 years ago.

The addition of the gold adds a bit of weight to the watch so it doesn't quite feel like a typical titanium Seamaster on the wrist.

I believe the Omega designation is 2294.50.00.

Thanks. It looks less shiny than the steel insert on the electric blue dial one. Is it brushed?

Yes the insert of the 2231 has a brushed finish while the one in the electric blue is polished

Thank you. I really like the sword hand SMP except for the huge numbers on the shiny bezel. This bezel version really looks much better to me. .

Take the 2254 and add in a ceramic bezel with finer numerals and that may be my perfect SMP


I will keep slogging along with this until Omega gets around to my ideal

Did somebody say "sword hands"? Here's my beloved 50th Anniversary GMT helping me explore a sandbar at low tide in the Bahamas... in its natural element: a timezone or two away from home, salty, and shining in the sun. b-)

It was keeping +11-12 s/d when I bought it second or third hand here on WUS, but fresh back from Omega service I gave up trying to measure its daily deviation. With a little judicious nightstand regulation here and there it's a "one mississippi, two mississippi" kinda operation to get things synced back to NIST whenever I need to stop it to account for 30 day months. Omega really nailed it with this generation of Seamasters, and the "proper" jump hour GMT complication is just the icing on top.
