What are the different street names or common designations for Omega watches? I know some of them, the most famous actually, but I wonder if there are others.

(pictures shamelessly taken from the web ...)

Quiet Speedmaster/Ed White, 105.103



Peter Blake, SMP 2254.50





The different Jacques Mayol's

I captured several in this thread - Omega Diver Generations.

Interestingly, it seems to me that the 2254 is really only referred to as the "Peter Blake" in France. I've only really seen that reference on Montres de Plongee. Is it more common than that?

Yes, you're right, the 2254.50 is probably called Peter Blake only in France, although I think it refers to the chronograph too.

Peter Blake contributed only to the design of the America's Cup version of the black Omega divers' chronometer of 2000… (Read this)

So, if you want to stick to facts, the 2254.50 is NOT the PB. But it's a very popular usage of the moniker in France.

Most of the other "street names" for Omega watches were coined years back by Chuck Maddox, and they really "stuck". They even can be found in official Sales catalogs!

You may read also about the "Holy Grail", the "Lobster Tail", the "teutonic" Speedmasters… all Chuck's inventions…

True, but it's now pretty common (in France) to design the 2254.50 as the Peter Blake ... The mistake may come from the Blackexpedition chronograph.
On the other hand the "Sir Peter Blake's choice" is the 2231.80 and can be found in 2001 Omega's catalogue.
