It’s a beauty and great alternative to the sub fir sure especially for larger wrists. It has more wrist presence
I compared the PO to the SubC and SD before deciding on the PO8900. The sub felt too small and I liked just about everything on the PO better than the SD. Different tastes and one size seldom fits all, despite the many comments on Rolex/Tudor WUS.

The new Planet Ocean is an absolute beauty.... I mean wow, how mesmerizing. I'm aiming for a 4 watch collection, all of them on different bands and dial colors. A seamaster 300 and 300 diver already in the box, but man, hard not to want this one too. Its got everything!

Yeah it really is a great piece and I love the different shades of blue during the day. It's crazy but I really want the black one as well!

It's been close to four months! But, finally back from a service.

Wow!! That looks great. With whom did you have it serviced? Did they give the bracelet a polish as well?

That’s a long wait. Did you send it to Omega in Switzerland? She is a beauty tho

I sent my IWC and it was a three week total turnaround which surprised me very much as i expected 5-6 weeks.

I had it serviced by an independent here in Melbourne, Tik Tok Watch Centre. The bezel insert was starting to lift at the 6 o'clock position. Omega wanted to just replace it, my preference was to try and keep it all original.

Yes, my only disappointment! I did ask them to clean the watch up, but I did not want it polished. I guess due to them working very reduced hours the last few months because of the Covid restrictions, my request was either forgotten about or mis-interpreted.

Anthony was otherwise great to deal with. He even dropped it off to me, as he lives not to far away, to save it sitting in the post for a week (postage has become super slow here due to everyone online shopping because of restrictions).

Yes it was, mate. Due to Covid restrictions in my state, businesses were severely restricted with their opening hours, some industries forced to close entirely. The whole state ground to a stop. Crazy the damage it's done to small business, but I digress, not a conversation for this forum.

It was serviced by a independent, not Omega. That may have contributed to the time, as I'm sure parts supply was impacted too.
