I originally looked for the blue Seamaster Pro but instead jumped on a 2298.80.00 300m Titanium Chrono diver since I'm a big chronograph fan. I considered the current stainless version from an AD (with almost 30% off list) but decided to save $1K, buying it used without cards from a very reputable seller on TZ. It's bigger than my other watch but I'm already getting use to it. The below pic is my Breitling Navitimer Premier (36.7mm - about 39mm including crown) next to the Seamaster Chrono (41.5mm). Now I need to get the bracelet sized and perhaps find a cordovan strap for the Omega.
BTW, I've seen a number of SMPs on TZ in the $1500 range recently.
