Well, it truly has been a while. I remember my last post had to do with my invicta and how the bezel had come off. Now I am back to post on some greats news, at least for me. I have always been a great admirer of Omega and although my family is a Rolex family and love them to death, I never quite found myself falling in love with Rolex. Granted, Rolex's are beautiful especially the submariner which was the one that I was looking for. Nevertheless, my heart truly was with Omega and the seamaster line.

I just got off a cruise and this time I had planned, like my father did many many years ago, to go to St. Thomas and purchase an Omega. I went with the intention of looking for both the Seamaster 300m and the Rolex Submariner. I always steered away from the Planet Ocean--my true love--because I felt the price was to much. Well, when I walked in to see how much the submariner was I was :eek:hmy: I reconsidered and although I would have paid what they were asking for, I then realized, holding the Rolex, that it just didn't call my name out. It was sparkling like the SM and PO were. So, I went back and picked up my PO 2200.51.00. I am truly in love with it and cannot helped but look at it constantly.

I believe in Omega and although I am not one to sit back and argue and fight over which timepieces are better, I truly believe that the PO is a great buy. I bought it from Dean Bump who is a contributor to HR magazine (I believe). He was very nice and helpful and explained to me how the co-axial movement was a superior movement and one of a kind currently in the market. He also explained how I will have to only service it about every 9-10 years or maybe even more.

One thing I wanted to bring up was how does Omega truly stack up against Rolex and Breitling? I was told by a Breitling dealer that the only competition they have is Rolex and many believe they are superior to them. He mentioned that Omega is no where near. I am just curious.

I will be posting pictures later on. Once again thank you for reading this.

Thank you very much guys, truly you have given me and my PO a warm welcome.

I love the Rolex submariner, but in deciding which one to take that day, the PO really spoke to me. I am truly in love with it, honestly.

Once again thank you and you will see many more PO pictures soon.

I have a question about the bezel that omega makes. Are they simliar to the ones that Rolex makes which are made out of ceramic? Are all Rolex bezels made out of ceramic?

Here is another one. I am not good with pictures of watches. This was taken with a huge lamp, my D200 and 18-200mm lense which is not a macro lense. It is not good at all, but just to show you guys another picture of my baby.

Thank you guys. Nevertheless, I am not happy with it. The lighting is just killing me. I had the kelvin temperature set at 4300k I think for this picture. Anymore and it will come out even more yellow. I am going to go ahead and take a look at the tutorials for taking pictures of watches on this forum.

Just a little update.

I have actually been keeping track of the watch as far as keeping time and I am somewhat bothered. I began comparing the PO against a quartz watch that I have and it is consistently +1 or +2 seconds which is find. However, I was comparing it to this time: http://www.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Eastern/d/-5/java and it is about +5 to +6 seconds. I am a little worried.
