    I quite like the blue wave dial, the gold looks a bit too similar to the Yacht-Master with the bezel strap and case but still a handsome piece.

    Blue is missing the red accents of the 3-hand model.

    Wow, they’re going all in with these.

    I thought they’d wait for the 50th Speedy extravaganza to die down before releasing more new models.

    Looks like the Reese's (Peanut Butter Cup) aesthetic is still going strong with those pusher bases. Does anyone know if they're true screw-down?

    Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, not Pieces.

    They have no need to be screw-down, the pushers on Seamaster Pro Chrono Divers and Planet Ocean Chronos have a special party trick that very few chronographs have in that they are fully safe to use down to the full depth rating of the watch, so the 300M models like this can technically have their pushers operated even at 300M, and the Planet Ocean Chrono to 600M.

    Screwdown pushers are designed to immobilise pushers so that the seals are not moved while underwater but from memory Omega developed a sort of double sealing method for these watches starting in '93 that makes them safe to use under all conditions. Only a few other watches like the TAG Heuer Aqua Graph, JLC MCDC etc have this ability.

    My favorite from the line is probably the black SS

    £20k for the all Sedna gold version is strong! Do like it though but at 44mm these will probably be a bit too big for me.

    SS/Sedna on black rubber is the sweet spot for me.

    Any news on prices for these? Someone mentioned £20k for the gold. That's crazy money.

    Seems as though Omega are pushing up their prices more in line with Rolex. Great idea. Let's make them even less obtainable.

    Ah! In that case I'll take one of each! May have to sell my SMPc to fund it though. And my PO. And seiko beater, and my left kidney.

    Didn't want that kidney anymore anyway.
