    +1 for the first gen P.O. in 42mm.
    Bought mine NOS back in 2015 and wearing the heck out of it every time it comes into rotation.
    Now looking for a POLMLE but good deals are a thing of yesteryear.

    Also one of the greatest solid casebacks of any Diver I know, let alone from Omega.

    Fabulous photos of a lovely watch. I have been considering a PO GMT as my next acquisition and the images of your PO pushed me even closer.

    I've had mine for 11-12 years. Started losing time back in Sept/Oct so I sent it in for it's first and only servicing. It's keeping amazing time now and looks brand new again. The 2500 is a workhorse. I suspect a lot of the issues people have experienced were with 2nd hand watches with questionable service histories. I've never had a 2500 that didn't run great that was well taken care of.

    As an owner of an Orange 3313, my heart is called to the 2500 black dial white numerals in 42mm. As I said 2 years ago it’s a future classic with great retro touches without being faux retro.

    the first gens wear so much better then even the 2nd gens for me it’s a no brainer.

    Sad that there’s no full orange bezel in the current line-up.

    There’s a red-orange bezel one though.

    Am still convincing myself on which PO to go for -
    the James Bond or the orange bezel.

    Depends on what you’ve got in the collection. The Orange is great. Loud but not cheap looking nor ostentatious. More casual/sporty.

    For seamasters, i have 2 vintage pieces and the 57 trilogy as well as my two James Bond pieces (Goldeneye SMP and Skyfall AT). Hence thinking of PO (whether to go James Bond and continue a theme OR go orange, which is somewhat calling to me).

    Was just trying to complete a modern seamaster line-up. I have an SMP, AT and SM300 already. Lacking a PO and a PloProf.

    Tried that at the AD earlier today. Not quite enamoured. But nice though.

    They really need to bring back a proper orange ceramic bezel. The 8500 on the bright orange strap was such a good looking sports watch. And you're right, in contrast to so many other super bright/loud sports watches out there that one just seemed to look right. Not ostentatious at all.

    There is an orange ceramic bezel on the platinum planet ocean. The problem is it’s supposedly very expensive to make orange ceramic at a level needed. It’s a piece that everyone forgets about... well the price might be a reason.

    Yeah. I'd be curious to see what it looks like on a black dial. But I also don't think it looks as give as the 8500 orange bezel in terms of finish and color.
