Planet Ocean strap change

Feb 09, 2020,12:11 PM

This watch is, to me at least, one of the more complete in terms of design, history or background, enjoyment and ability to dress up or down. It was bought after a long period of thinking about one watch for all situations. At the end it was a choice between the Rolex 16610 and the Omega Planet Ocean 2201.50.00. I recognize that these pictures helped a lot (as well as the difference in price).

After that, I have bought like 10 straps for it. But every time I think about taking off the bracelet, I hesitate and decide to leave it alone. Until now.

I really love the quality this watch exudes.

Thanks for looking and have a nice Sunday friends.

También pienso que una de canvas verde militar le iría bien. Que opinas? Gracias por echar una mirada y feliz domingo! Un abrazo. René

Por cierto! [nt]

That’s a very cool Omega....

Looking at its best on the NATO. Enjoy !

Thank you Captain

Yes, I think the strap brings another character to the watch. Thanks for looking! René

The military Seamaster 300 you mean?

 By: renerod : February 11th, 2020-12:30
Of course! That’s what I was referring to when I mentioned the history behind this watch. Best. René

Of your 6 photos I like #5 the best

That is one sharp watch! But also not that easy to photograph, I'd guess. Cheers, Cazalea

Thanks dear Mike

You’re right, the reflections are not the best friends of this watch. You have to search for the right angles / lighting. But it is a sweet and enjoyable watch anyway. Thanks for looking! René

I have the same

It’s a fabulous watch and I didn’t want to own a watch everyone else did.

How do you like to wear it the most?

 By: renerod : February 9th, 2020-19:40
Bracelet or straps? Well, I think there are many out there now, but it is a very enjoyable watch anyway Thanks for looking. René

I like mine on the bracelet

 By: mrsnak : February 15th, 2020-12:09
It's certainly one of my watches that has gone into the ocean!

Me too, but I must accept that it looks very good on straps too.

 By: renerod : February 15th, 2020-14:11
Thanks for looking! René

Hello dear Rene. You own a wonderful all purpose watch from Omega. Strong, tough, reliable. It looks classic and with a military vibe on it.

 By: Subexplorer : February 10th, 2020-06:38
I own the orange bezel variant which is not so versatil as your black bezel. For my taste, though the original steel bracelet is very well made, it is a bit heavy so I have been wearing mine with a set of "sail cloth" black straps with orange stitching. I... 

Thank you very much my dear friend

 By: renerod : February 11th, 2020-12:25
As always your opinion is very kind. I would appreciate very much if you could share your sail cloth strap maker/brand. Since I would love to try as many looks for my watch. I tend to agree with you about the excessive amount of strap on some Natos, but t... 

Hello dear Rene! Always my pleasure to share experiences...

... and experimenting with straps is an additional way of enjoying our watches. I’m sending you the link to the place I buy the sail cloth type straps. They are very well made and have good prices. Here some shots of my watches with these straps. I don’t ...  

Muchas gracias! 🙏🏼 [nt]

Un placer amigo René.

Espero hayas recibido bien mi PM Abrazo! Abel

Muchas gracias Abel

Voy a revisar mi correo porque en la app no encuentro la opción para verlos. Un fuerte abrazo! René

Perfecto Rene!

I am right in. I love the original strap, but sometimes i wil change. I wait til weekend, and than i decide if i put the original beloved strap on the greatest diver. SMP300 rhapsody in bleu. Omega, bleu, the bleu, love you.🔵🔷🔵

That’s a lovely watch

 By: renerod : February 11th, 2020-23:03
Do you have pictures on different straps? Best. René

I remember that same dilemma 12 years ago -- Omega PO vs. Rolex (16660, for me)...

 By: CR : February 15th, 2020-21:05
I had a difficult time deciding, so thanks to the preowned market, I was able to solve for both. I am very partial to the PO on the bracelet, as it's incredibly comfortable and balanced. I also love the solid caseback and greatly prefer it to the newer, t...  

Yours was the best solution!

 By: renerod : February 17th, 2020-12:25
And what a great shot that of the double wrist! I also love the bracelet and think it’s the best look, but sometimes I like some variation. Also I like more the solid case back with the beautiful engraving of the sea monster. It is a cult classic. I also ... 

Me too..🤭

 By: myles721 : February 26th, 2020-03:37

Well Myles, they definitely look good on the bracelet!

 By: renerod : February 26th, 2020-09:23
I’m wondering how much taller or thicker is the PO chronograph compared to the 3 hander. Enjoy them both in the best health. René

4 mm difference

 By: myles721 : February 26th, 2020-15:15
The Chrono is 19mm to the 2500’s 15mm...19 is thick but the way it sits on your wrist is more like 17mm because of the inset display back. I like them both but the 2500’s minute hands lume bugs me as it looks too much like the hour hand in the dark which ... 

That is a good feature that makes it more enjoyable

 By: renerod : February 26th, 2020-20:46
Thanks for your kind answer. And yes, like you say, the similarity between the hour and minute hand could be a problem at certain circumstances. Like when you see the hour at 12 o clock 😬 But otherwise they are very visible. Best. René
