Such a fantastic reference! My favorite color combo for....well, just about anything, but especially the Omega GMT's like this one! Brilliant!

The Bond NATO goes so well with the 2500 PO

100% correct. 5 years on and strap is still in relatively decent nick as well. The PO is pensionable age now though.



However, am not feeling this one at all, and it’s very rare that this type of NATO doesn’t work on a 2500, @Cyber, agree/disagree, You still wearing it?

I think the black grey is a much better look. The beige suits the NTTD SMP for better IMHO.

That's a great shot, Dan.

I love the open 6 and 9 on the POLME. I wish they continued to use them on the new POs.

Agreed René. It’s a small detail carried over from the 60’s Seamaster 300. Adds a little elegance from back in the day. The newer squarer font looks a little too modern IMHO.

Sorry TSC, just saw your post now.

Nope, that one lasted all of 2 days.
Apologies in advance, this is going to be pic-heavy.
It can look kind of 1/2 OK in the right light :

- but hard to dismiss the 60-a-day smoker's rotten teeth images the lume colour brings to my mind.
BTW, needed to cut the 2nd pass off to avoid raising the watch head to perfect door-frame collision height -

Think the wife has designs on it to attach a leash to for her colleague's cat, or something similar. Here's aforementioned cat; hmm, don't think I want to mess with him :

I do want to try the strap on my 2503 Railmaster first though. Won't be soon - just this afternoon adjusted bracelet with new 1/2 link instead of a full one to see if it stays centred.

It'll be hard for it to equal either the old Phenomenato 'Bond' -

- or even older "Alias Marlow" (member here & eBay) Bond RAF straps, which look exactly like Connery's (pre-NATO) RAF strap from the first 007 movies ...

(the subtle red lines disappear at arms length etc - people couldn't even even see them until Blu-Ray version of the early films came along). Following 6 are borrowed pics :

15502212


15502213


15502214


IMHO far nicer, in fact classic.
