Double 9 Edition..?
Whoa! Photoshop or a unique factory "mistake"? Looks like Photoshop, especially since that 2nd 9 is where the date window should be. Interesting....

AH! I've seen another Omega Seamaster (can't recall if it was a PO or 300m) that had no date window that was recently up for sale, but do not recall it having a double 9. I suppose one could value these as unique, collectible and worth more....but as the Watchfinder video points out, it's definitely a novelty to hold on to.

It is time to write my first post, and what a better thread than this. I love my Planet Ocean; it is with me since 2013 and I still find it awesome. For a long-sighted like me, it is easy to check the time on the large dial of my PO. … One day I will buy its tank-track (the metal bracelet… ) and it would be perfect.

Excellent choice of watch for a first post, beautiful Casino Royale 2500C, congrats. A bracelet should not be too difficult to source. Have you asked for a quote from the OB?

@VicLeChic, I did, but its price is always far beyond my current resources, and I have other expenses. Will see.
There's a guy in a Spanish forum selling one for 250 euros (22mm wide). I don't know him but he's got good feedback. PM of you're interested and I'll send you the link.

Honestly, especially with the 45mm, I prefer it on rubber/nato anyway. I find it looks good on a variety of straps and is super comfortable on the omega rubber strap, whereas I noticed the size and weight a bit more on the bracelet. I haven't done the adjustable clasp mod yet, though, so maybe that would help.

I have been fixated on the METAS PO 8900 43.5, and I finally got to an Omega AD to check one out in person. Beautiful piece, just brilliant. Question for you owners out there......Coming from a Tudor Pelagos, I was hoping for something slimmer than the Pelagos, this PO is over 16mm I believe. Did you get used to it? I also tried on the wave dial Seamaster and while its nice, the bracelet doesn't do much for me and I like the rectangular indices of the PO's. Is there a different PO that might work better?

Cheers
