    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Part of me wishes I had a PO, but I went thought the Bond and subsequent models. Those were well finished and reliable enough, but the styling dated easily. These new Planet Ocean models seem to be much better executed.

    The blue waves are classic, why not? Do you prefer it to the new model with black face?

    Anyone a fan of the vintage Seamasters - 1960s?

    Not a fan of the regular seamaster pro personally. The vintage ones, and particularly the 300, yes very much so. But probably for the same reasons I like the PO

    in stitches> I love the blue bezel one you showed in the picture, had one a few years ago, might get one again at some point - if i find that pot of gold. I would never ever wear a planet ocean though

    Have you seen yet a new version of Seamaster Pro with ceramic bezel? It is really gorgeous.

    I have this one and I like it. I prefer this one over the black face model and the PO's.

    I generally find they look too dated too soon because they seemed to have a different style almost every decade and far too many 007 limited editions in batches of 10,000 (which isn't very limited). But for $500 its a no brainer, unless its in horrible condition I say go for it.

    Hoping to see some wrist shots soon. I've had mine for a few weeks and I love this watch!

    Not the best photo but here is a quick wrist shot taken before all the plastic was off.
