I just bought a black bezel for my orange PO and thinking about swapping it. Do you guys think it would look weird since the numbers will still be orange?
I put the bezel over the watch to see and it looks super awkward. I think I'll need to get used to it.

I think it will look good, I've seen loads of the same combination and I like it.

I'm pretty sure Omega used to ship that exact combination in the 2500 series. EDIT: Yes They Did:

I bought the black on black model. But I liked all the 2500 combinations.
You will get used to it. A strap with a bit of orange like this one completes it. But I think it's okay on others, too.

Thanks! I think it will look better ones it's actually installed. I just simply laid it over my PO just to see and there was a tiny bit of orange still showing, so maybe that's why. For now I'm worried about the install. I'm taking it to a jeweler who claims he specializes in watches. Old grumpy guy, he kinda got offended when I was explaining to him how it's done and said "do it yourself if it's easy". Anyways, I just don't want my watch to get scratched up. Omega boutique refused to put it on so I'm on my own. An suggestions?

As has been said this was an Omega tweener model between the orange and the black. It looks great.

I like the black and orange so much I own both!

As for the grumpy guy his attitude stinks so if he is good go for it but if is unknown I'd keep looking.

Well he wants me to bring it in so he can look at it. I know the bezel is a PITA to pry off especially since this is a newer watch. (Forgot to mention I it's an 8500). I just down want any scratches. He does do custom jewelry and he's very hands on. He's cleaned and repaired my wife's jewelry with no companies. I always see at least 2 guys working in the back. I'll try to keep looking but no one except for omega carries that specialized bezel removal tool. Even the watch maker at omega told me it's a pain to remove the bezel even with the right tools

The strap looks nice, do you have the details ? Any feedback on it ? Why are you planning to change ?

It's good and pretty sturdy which means it needs a little breaking in... I've msg You the details about the strap Mate...

The 2201.51 comes with orange numbers and black bezel and looks fine. I put the orange bezel on mine 2-3 years ago, and I like it better that way.

So here is my watch with the black bezel. Please note that the insert isn't installed, I just put it over my orange bezel. This is aftermarket but look so fine. My only concern is that you can still see some orange so I'm worried about the sizing but maybe that's because it's not fully installed into the bezel as it should be.

Aftermarket Bezels usually comes with a crap Lume pip. I hope yours are not unless You're not bother with the Lume pip function.

This one is fine. Can't complain for $16. I started using this watch as a back up bottom timer when scuba diving so it should bother me.

That's good to know Mate. As long as the Lume is visible then should be fine. Just find someone who can install it for You using the right tools 😉

It looks aftermarket to me, being set too low and maybe too large vs my PO 2500 black bezel. I'm also not sure an aluminum bezel insert made for PO 2500 will fit correctly inside the PO 8500 bezel ring.

On a positive note for moswissa, I've seen replica bezels that had the right size, placement, and good brightness and duration of the lume in the pip, so if it is aftermarket it might function just fine, if it fits.

Personally, I would leave the watch alone with the orange bezel and stay original.

[edit - I took too long to finish my post by checking my black bezel before hitting submit button, and mowissa posted in the meantime]

Yes I understand that it's better to keep the watch original. Don't get me wrong I love the orange. It was actually one of the main reasons I bought this watch. The thing is I feel like this orange screams way too much especially with short sleeves. I want to be able to switch it up. Makes me feel like I bought a new watch lol

I need to find out if this bezel is made for the 2500 or 8500. I thought it would be the same.
