    Just curious what the opinion of these 2 different SMPs?

    I like them both from the pics but not certain which I'd like better?

    Bond 60th is my favourite blue, followed by Summer blue and then the standard.

    Neither. Summer blue PO was my choice. Although if I had to pick between the 2 SMP, I’d take summer blue.

    If forced to get blue, I’d go for the standard blue in this case — just too much blue on the 75th Anniversary. But I’d probably go for the green — I like that it isn’t so bright in sunlight, unlike the blue.

    I like the summer blue except for the baby blue in the bezel. Should be white in my opinion. I like the JB60 the most.

    I literally spent hours at the AD choosing my Planet Ocean. It was down to the black or the blue. It was what resonated with me the most at an emotional level. The blue was the winner. At this point, it’s what you like… not anyone else.

    The summer blue is gorgeous but for an everyday watch I’d go with the standard blue. As others have said though, I think the Bond 60th is the one.

    The PO 75th is my favorite. In the metal it is incredible. One of the best dials I’ve ever seen.

    This is my daily. For me the choice is easy, summer blue. But it isn't as plain as the regular blue and that may not sit well with some people.

    You already have a green SMP so the fact that you are adding a second one makes me think it should be something special!

    That is the debate.... There is also the price difference. For the price of the summer blue 75th I could almost get a black and a blue....also good photos of the 75th smp in daylight seem hard to find....

    The dial is super hard to photograph, so even the good photos I've seen don't show how the dial transitions. They just catch it in a static position during transition...

    I bet both @Sauzo and @RayM55 would say something similar about their Planet ocean dials.
