Okay guys. If you only had one watch. Would you get a PO 2500 black bezel or orange bezel? (On steel)
One watch? The black.
If I was adding to my current collection, the orange (I actually do have a vague plan to add an orange 2500 at some point, but it's several positions down the pecking order at the moment)

Black bezel it's more universal in terms of usage - goes with anything

Closely followed by blue for the perfect 2 watch combo to cover all the bases.

Cheers

Wow. 2 questions: Does Omega happen to be your favorite brand? Which one of those gets the most wrist time?

OMG, I missed this question for months until someone liked my previous post today and I checked this thread again. So Sorry.

(1) Yeah, Omega is my favorite for the wide variety of different but high quality watches they offer, some quite expensive and others more affordable.

(2) Out of all the Seamasters above, the Titanium Planet Ocean 9300 in the first shot gets the most wrist time of all, including out of all my Omega, Rolex, or everything else (about 15-20 days a month). I'm very attached to about 12-15 of my watches, but if this was my only one I could be happy (but maybe not feel complete).

No worries Larry.

I would have guessed the omega bit but not quite the favourite being the above!

I've been wearing my 1861 very often lately... Just like this guy

My Ti Planet Ocean 9300 draws me in because it's shiny, colorful, looks luxurious, and it's a beast. It's like my Big FU watch!

I really do like the Speedy Pro like yours, but lately only pull mine out when I want to look a little more "vintage" (an 861 from 1976). When I had the Speedmaster CK-2998 LE I wore it quite often, but in the end I felt like it was a little small for my wrist, as the blue ring around the white dial makes the dial too small vs the Pro. I might wear my Silver Snoopy every day if it wasn't so freaking expensive and limited.

So my choice may surprise you, but I still have my other top favorites like my GSOTM, X-33, POLMLE and Orange Planet Ocean 2500, Ti PO 8500, Rolex Polar Explorer II and GMT II BLNR, Silver Snoopy Award, SMPc chronograph, 1976 Speedy Pro, Hamilton Harrison Ford Chronograph, and Grand Seiko white dial diver.

Love Hamilton my Khaki Auto 44mm, didn't realise Hamilton had a "Harrison Ford" model, sounds perfect for watching reruns of Air Force 1 - that I do too often.

Great collection, especially on the elusive silver snoopy which I absolutely love. BLNR is next on my list if they don't update the movement in the sub next year.

What phone took them?!
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Does pretty darn nice but still not on the level of a professional Canon or Nikon.

Fantastic shots, and far superior to my Nikon or Sony compacts, and definitely the iPhone too!
Quick off-topic question for the tech/photography guys: is it worthwhile upgrading from an iPhone 6 (or is it 6S?) to the just-announced one (or even the one(s) before that)? I'm talking just from the built-in camera POV - not bothered about any of the other features later models may or may not have...Thanks!

(I was thinking of getting a digital camera, but I don't think I can be bothered with having another "device"...)

Good question, all I know is they're all 12MP, but from my understanding only the plus version and the X have the greater optical zoom, wide angle and telephoto etc,
