Whilst on vacation in Cancun I thought it would be fun to spin up a thread for the 2500.

We all (at least mostly I think) love the Planet Ocean. And while 2500 v 8500 is sometimes debated and there's all sorts of speculation around what's next for the PO line at Basel 2016, I'm finding newfound appreciation for the original 2500.

So, share a story. Ask a question. And by all means post pics! :)

Here's a photo to start. More to follow.



Cheers! I hope everyone is having a great week!!

Love my 2500 XL - classic looks and thinner than the 8500 as well.

I only wish they'd make a clasp with micro adjustments, that would make it perfect for me!

I am biased but I think the 2500 is much better looking than the 8500. I used to lust after the Rolex Submariner but once I tried one on I knew that 40mm was just too small for me. Once I saw the POC XL I had to have one. Now I do. As a matter of fact I just added a polished Steib mesh bracelet but haven't taken any pictures. There are other much better examples on this forum but I'll share this one of my POC 2500 XL

I didn't take to the PO when it was first released. However it grew on me and is now the one watch I own I would keep if all others had to go.

I've had it on the mesh for most of the time I've owned it. I've just ordered the PloProf clasp to go with the mesh to gain some security and micro adjustment.

Enjoy Cancun and try to relax.

And then I bought this:


If I had to make a choice...
The Explorer would stay.

Just when I was convincing myself moving on to the 8500 model....you guys are mean ! :)

My only regret was to get a full black, I often drool on your pics with orange numerals or full orange models. I think thats the only fact that would make me go further but I'm always a bit unsure about orange on long term.

PO was my first 'luxury' watch and automatic item. Goes strong after 7y of ticking and when seeing all your pics it just screams the word 'classic'. The newer one can't pull that sporty look on the diving rubber imho, nor match that deep black bezel.

Warning Pic flood ! Just posting brings back lot of cool memories with this PO on wrist. Guess it was the thread I needed :p.
