I love my QOS that I bought last year in mint unworn condition!Finally got me a PO (2500). I know some hate the 007 models, but I dig it. 007 counterweight is not that noticeable anyway.
I was surprised how thin it was for a large diameter. Fits very comfortable on me and this is probably the best rubber strap I have owned. I like that the strap sits flush with bezel at the lugs.

Hi gr4z,I’ve had my 2500 for 10 years+ now and I still love it. However, when using the stainless steel standard strap I can’t find a perfect size for my wrist. It’s either too small or too big. It’s really infuriating. I know the newer models have an adjustment which is perfect especially when your wrist swells up during the day but does anyone have any suggestions to help?
Oh yeah! I remember I tried to source the materials from some local dealers who all refused to sell me anything as it was not approved from Omega. Hence I bought the leather strap and deployment. Sorry I totally forgot about the previous posts!Hi gr4z,
I know the problem only too well.
Luckily it's not a difficult job to fit the adjustable clasp (& adaptor links if using original bracelet) to the 2500 PO.
Did it by myself back in April 2017 - after dark, while cooking vegetables, oven baking a pizza & answering messages, all in around 90 minutes. :-d

Later put my 2500 on the 8500 bracelet (using the original 952 endlinks), so now has all screw-type connections & no adaptors needed :-!
18 months ago I also got another (10 years newer) 42mm PO2500 from a fellow forum member, already with a similar set-up.

Some of these parts difficult to source here in HK (or in UK), so I eventually got all the bits & pieces needed from John Spellman at Swiss Watch Spares & Swiss Limited Editions in Manchester.
He's extremely helpful & knowledgable about Omega watch parts, & very chatty on the phone. I called him & he confirmed all the right bits etc.
Hope some of the above might be useful. ;-)
Sorry for the old "news" gr4z - just realised we've already exchanged posts about this, around 14 months ago.
Think those in UK are concerned about ordering from the US, and particularly about the UK regulatory import charges (including VAT, customs, delivery & import etc) - bit of a nightmare, & an expensive one. :roll:Good luck, I would suggest using a US Omega Boutique if you can. I just did mine two weeks ago for ~$200. They didn't even rise and eyebrow when I asked.
Yup, same as in Hong Kong now.Fully agreed and understand. But also believe UK dealers are not willing to do things US dealers are
