The cal. 8800 in the PO395 is the same diameter as the cal. 2500 and only a half-millimeter thicker. It obviously is intended to replace the cal. 2500 in the SMPc and other watches that use the 2500 as updates are made in the next year or so.Per my erroneous post above, are you sure the case thickness is less than the 2201.50? How is that possible with the new movement? My biggest complaint with the new models is the case thickness and I'd definitely consider a 40mm if it is around the same thickness as the 2201.50.
With the 2254 SMP I couldn't get a good fit with this strap so I sold it. Wonder if it's good with the PO XL.
I was trying to reply using my laptop and there's no space bar.😂 anyway Yeah, they are definitely different as my SMP 2254 20mm lug and the PO XL is 22mm. I think the deployant is the better choice, thou it cost an arm and a leg😂😂😂'
I'm no expert, but I understand that a different version of this strap is needed to fit the 45mm PO XL, & yet another for the GMT.
Mine fits perfectly.
