Got the call from my AD this afternoon to say the my Planet Ocean had arrived.

It was a nice suprise as I was expecting it to be another couple of weeks yet as Omega had told the AD it would be a 3 week wait when I ordered it.

I managed to rush into London just before closing to pick it up and I am well chuffed!!

First impressions are that it is BIG BIG BIG, but that the 42mm size just looked small compared to my 300M Chrono, however the 45.5 is still lighter than the 300M Chrono.
The bracelet is fantastic (think I may get half a link more taken out for a more snug fit) and feels great, and the Lume is absolutely superb!!



All in all its been a great weekend (see my other thread re: bracelet) and hopefully I will be able to pick up a Speedy in another few months to go along with my Seamasters.

Have a great day Mr Inked

I was wondering if you had considered shooting the two watches together so we could see the relative sizes...... :thumbup1:


Thanks Pal


Be well now :001_smile:

Hi Zin,

Didn't get time yesterday to do a comparative shot as one of my mates came round as he knew my wife was away on a training course, so it ended up a night of drinking plenty of red wine. :D
I will certainly see what I can do this afternoon.

Only just got in from work and to a quick snap to show the difference in size between my 2 Omegas.

Great choice

and welcome to the club. You're right about the lume - I love it. I sure wish I had a Bond Chrono though. Cheers.

Thanks Vince

The PO looks significantly bigger but would I be right to say that the case of the Bond chrono is deeper ( thicker ) ?

Lovely water-borne pair :thumbup:


Keep enjoying them my friend :001_smile:

Yep, the Bond Chrono is a 1 or 2mm deeper but it looks and feels a lot more due to the difference in diameter

Yes thanks for confirming that my friend.

It certainly looked much thicker when compared to the black SMP chrono.


Have a good evening :001_smile:

Looks very nice - CONGRATULATIONS

It's quite large too but makes a lot of sense if you have the Bond chrono.


Best wishes :001_smile:
