    It has kind of a nice vintage look to it but I am not a fan of that hand set and I don't like bracelets that don't have curved ends to fill in that space between the case and the end of the bracelet. It is borderline but I would have to sink it.

      I agree with Vince - I don't mind mesh bracelets, but I only like the original Omega style with the open end that the springbars fit through - not the style on this with the closed straight end. The gap bothers me with the closed straight end, but not so much with the old Omega mesh.

        I really like it. I wear a lot of those mesh bracelets with straight ends, and dig that retro style, so no points deducted on that front.
        If the lume is great and the bezel scratch-proof, I'd say the only thing it lacks is a date window.
        I nearly love it, however, I won't be trading in my GMT for one...

          I have some niggles, most of which have been mentioned, but I'd wear it.

            That swims for me. Looks awesome with that domed crystal and thinner case. I only object to the price, nothing else.

              It ticks lots of boxes, the bracelet, the dial, the hand set, no date... the only bad thing is the price. Love it.

                I guess I’m the grinch but it gets a bah-humbug from me. Here’s what I posted on Hodinkee-

                I must say, I'm not impressed with the overall look. I think having the broad arrow on the dial is silly. The faux patina color seems a little too "peachy". A "shark" type mesh bracelet would have been much nicer than the milanese that it appears to come with. Finally, I simply don't understand the continued fascination with the He valve at 10. Switch out to impermeable gaskets and be done with it. Omega has made some of the best performing and best looking dive watches in history. This is not one of them. They should get their design team together and give them a good drubbing.

                  I hated the HE valve for years, but it has now been what 20 years? 25? Omega just wore me down and I am used to it. Still, Chris, you are right: impermeable gaskets would be better.

                      No one to die... i am in for the mesh bracelet, broad arrow and faux patina. Only down side is nobody would pay for it.

                        Just forget about it all together, because nobody is going to take that watch saturation diving any time any where.

                          I like it overall, especially the bracelet choice in contrast to other opinions here on it. My only gripe is with the Broadarrow marking on the dial. This kind of thing is a point of contention for me...I understand it is supposed to invoke a sense that this is a government issued piece of kit being a watch worn by a British government agent, but the fact that in reality it isn't bothers me a bit. I would suspect military buffs might agree with me. I would just as well have left it off. Love it otherwise!

                            I've had three,over the years, currently a 2265-50 (quartz). I detest the Bond hand set.
