Finally received my rubber strap and deployant. Compared to the Aqua Terra rubber, this is a little more softer and flexible. Amazing that the SMP feels so light light that if feels like you are not wearing anything, considering this is a diver watch. So glad that I don’t have to wrestle with the conventional pin buckle as this will be my daily.

With this setup, I feel like I’m done with the strap hunt as I’m totally satisfied with the look and feel. Happy I spent a little more for this one and done setup. No need to buy straps for trial and error like always :)

Hi
That strap & buckle combo looks great 👍
What is the part number for the strap as I noticed that doesn’t have the gap for the tang buckle at the end so assume it’s not the standard 300m rubber strap?
Thanks

QUESTION: What does everybody think about the Seamaster 300 Tokyo??
It's basically the same awesome white dial, but it has BLUE instead of black.

It's more special, but a lot more money too, since I think it has to be bought
for full price, whenever Omega gets them back in stock (and notifies me).

I think that I really prefer the blue on white over the regular black on white.

How did you all decide to go for the black on white and NOT the Tokyo??
I'm just curious. Thanks

Honestly, I don’t think it’s more special at all, it just costs more. The difference is some blue instead of black and some limited edition stuff on the case back.

It depends on how much you like blue. I prefer white and black and if I want a touch of blue I’ll get a blue strap.

I don’t see these commanding a huge premium in the future but I could be wrong.

I have a question for all too. Can we purchase the blue bezel and install ourselves, just like the Rolex GMT's?

I was in clinic today training bunch of doctors on a new medical device. Noticed one wearing the polar white rolex gmt ..we chatted afterwards ..he wasn't really a WIS'er but he had bought it before starting his residency (10 years ago). The watch was in really good shape and I couldn't help but notice the striking similarity between the white smp and the polar rolex. Similar size case, black markers, pure white dial, blackened hour hands, etc.

My watch on the left and a random google picture on the right ...

Sorry, other than the fact they both have white dials, I don't see much of a resemblance. I like them both, could very well end up with both eventually, but if they were even close to the same, I'd for sure only get one.

I'm not gonna lie, I hated the regular bracelet that came with the SMP. This is why I purchased the Apollo 11 bracelet and black rubber. Now that the stock bracelet is off my wrist for a week or two, I'm beginning to miss and appreciate the looks of the original bracelet from seeing pictures here. Anyone in the similar situation like me?

I never had an issue with the stock bracelet. To me its the essence of this watch and adds to its character. Not to mention I find it more comfortable than many other bracelets I wear all the time.

Thank you for getting back to me!
I also think that I prefer the blue color (nothing to do with the Olympics).
I have a question: do the hands and hour markers always look BLUE in person?
I ask, because in quite a few pictures and videos, they appear to look black...
and the whole reason to get this particular model is that everything is blue
(& not black).
Thank you for sharing your experience with this Tokyo watch :)!
It looks great. I knew that there HAD to be some people out there
with this Tokyo version white dial Seamaster...it's always sold out,
so somebody has to be buying them!

I like it quite a bit. I didn’t get it because of the olympics connection, just that blue is my favorite color. I was looking at the black bezel and the bond, but this one just captured my attention.

No problem.
That white strap is what I’m looking for pls share link and more pics of where it meets the case. Etsy is out of stock :)

edit: based on the design, zealande.. only reason holding back is for the price, might go with OEM but not available.

It’s a Zealande. They are worth it. And still less than the OEM rubber straps.

FYI - you cannot install the Omega pin and buckle on them tho, I took mine to the Dallas boutique and we tried but it doesn’t work. Oh well. It doesn’t take away anything from the strap’s function or comfort.
