Mainly the bezel. The new one is matte aluminum. Less glare. Smaller inner steel area of the bezel seems to make better use of space and makes the dial look bigger. I like the style choice with the onion crown. The bracelet taper is nice though I have no preference on that. Same quick adjust mechanism. Seems to wear a tiny bit lower on the wrist. The domed sapphire is cool though there's a bit of milky edge syndrome.What do you like about the new one more?
I recently sold my older version, but sometimes feel pangs of regret
I didn't try the 1st gen, so I can't really make a direct comparison, but it certainly doesn't feel top-heavy to me. Since it is quite a bit thinner, plus part of the thickness is the domed crystal anyways, I have to imagine it feels significantly better than the 1st gen.I had a 1st Gen black dial. Traded for the titanium blue dial. The Ti wears so well, I honestly can't say I'd make the switch.
Does the new version wear closer to the wrist than the old, as regards the perceived weight of it? The gen 1 felt top heavy to me in stainless, not so in Ti.
It's not possible to state with 100% certainty if a bezel is misaligned based on a picture. If the angle at which it is taken is only a couple of degrees off it will always seem that way.I'm just now noticing that my bezel is ever so slightly misaligned - can be seen best above with the pip at 12, and the 10 minute marker. I swear it wasn't misaligned when I first got it, and I have since used the bezel to time some stuff since getting the watch. What is Omega's qc tolerance for this kind of thing? Should I just live with it?
I hate that I have now noticed this. I can't unsee it
Edit: now that I'm looking closely at past pictures here it seems like my bezel is aligned the same as the rest, maybe I'm just crazy.
Now that I'm looking at it closely and off my wrist, I think that what I'm seeing is the fact that the 10 marker is lined up so that the middle of the 2'oclock triangle lines up exactly with the space in between the 1 and the 0, so it ends up looking funky. The pip and all markers are aligned as far as I can tell.It's not possible to state with 100% certainty if a bezel is misaligned based on a picture.

So if it seems off when you're looking at it directly bring it in. I will do so with mine (previous gen) as it is a bit off which I don't find tolerable.
