    I love my PO's but I can't even imagine how insanely impractical (ok but fun) that watch would be. Not to mention heavy! I have the 45.5mm 8501 in the red gold and if memory serves me correctly I think it weighs in around 250g. That platinum one would be a couple pounds!

    A shame about the lack of a regular production 8500 with ceramic though. Ever since that first post popped up I've been thinking about one non-stop!

    I like the slightly “vintage” look of the older 2500 caliber but the bezel just gets scuffed up so easily. But beautiful piece nonetheless especially with the slimmer profile when compared to the newer ones.

    Been on my list since its original release.
    No it's on my wrist. Love it even more in person.
    Such great wrist presence and fits nicely under shirts or jackets. Not too bulky ...even if its 45.5mm.
    Keep in mind my wrists are 6.5"

    Wearing my circa 2011 PO 42mm today.

    I’ve never been a huge bracelet guy, might pick up a rubber strap in the near future. Mostly due to long arm hairs and being pulled out by the links lol.

    I currently owned the 42mm 8500. As also said by the rest of the guys here, the 2500 would be a nice classic PO. That’s in my wishlist too.

    The 8500 is growing on me for sure. Really dig the grey ceramic bezel.

    Wait, does that mean the orange 8500 is aluminum, while the dark grey 8500 is ceramic? Is that really the case?

    Yes that is the case! I’ve owned both. I gave the orange one to my son and traded the grey/black ceramic one for my titanium 42mm

    How badly do you need it? $495 for a rubber strap? Yikes! (says the guy with two $165 Omega NATOs).
