post #32686 of 39305

Oh there is a running small seconds hand. It shares the subdial with the GMT hand. Which I think balances out the two-hand chrono subdial...

Gotcha. I was thinking if the chrono was eliminated,having a dedicated small seconds subdial would make up the second subdial to keep the same look. Plus it would clean up the entire thing with the chrono subseconds hand eliminated. Bonus.

But then how would all the divers know how much air they have left without the chrono OR a rotating bezel?

Darn divers and their need for GMT and chrono functions...haha

I agree it would be much cleaner without the Chrono. I like using the subdial for the GMT but the biggest deterrent to this watch has to be the 9k price tag (did I read that right?). I think the PO GMT is still nicer.

To the previous comparison with the white dial Explorer, I see them as pretty close. The PO however is quite thick and I found the Explorer looked better in person. Looks a bit cartoony in pics. Still leaning towards the older Explorer II though.

I just called an Omega AD, and they told me the 300m co-axial blue wave dial ones have been discountinued, is it true?

They made way for the ceramic bezel version, I believe. I'm sure there are still plenty new ones out there to acquire, though.

Of those 2 watches, I'd prefer the Omega over Rolex.

I think it's very different - much more ostentatiously dive-y and sporty.  But the PO is cool, and that extra function is extra cool.

I don't know if they're still in production but there are loads around, and whatever the original list price was, the general price I saw looking them up was $6.5k-ish; the ones with three subdials and a bezel seem to be the same price.

The new 9300 speedy is rated to 100m. I'm sure this would cover almost all your bases. Although as one member pointed out a while ago it also matters what kind of activity you are doing. Is there a lot of impact or pressure involved? If so you may actually need a true 'diver'

I really wanted to like/love the Omega Goodplanet. When I saw it in person I was fairly disappointed. I do like the black version more I think. My brother has the new Exp and I think that watch really changed my opinion about Rolex. Such a great watch if not understated as some of said. But that's not a bad thing.

I find the AT designs nice just not a fan of the vertical board patterns on the dial.

The new 9300 is the speedmaster for the new generation. Great watch,contemporary size and a Great movement.its a little to big for me but you can clearly see white your money goes over a standard speedmaster pro.

I fele the same way as you regarding the Goodplanet. I think it was the Color Scheme and the thickness that irked me most.
Egen the chance came I bought the 42mm black 216570 gmt and I think this is the most underrated watch Of the current Rolex. it was bought new in september 2013 and I got this flawless noe with everything for 3500$ off sticker price in april when used Subs her ein Norway fetch close to retail for worse examples than mine. I really think its a future classic.

^^ I think the normal 42mm Speedy Pros are a great comtemporary size. New, 44mm are a bit too large in my opinion.
post #32698 of 39305
Agreed. Thats why I prefer the original:D

Does the 57 use the 9300 movement? That 57 sure is good looking.



+1 to 42mm though. I think it's an ideal size.

I belive if it has 2 subdials it is the 9300.
