Bought this Seamaster with 2500 movement new (in the sale of course) in 2019 just before "new" wavey Seamaster with 8800 movement was coming out.

Was tempted by new version but couldnt justify the £1500 difference at the time.

It's a lovely watch to wear and even recognisable by some non-watch people.

I think the bracelet is a bit love/hate. I love it.

Don't really know why it's taken me so long to post here...:mad0218:

This is my Seamaster 2231.80. It's full size, with titanium case, bezel and 'Bond' style bracelet. This is the 'Electric' blue version. Calibre is the Omega 1120 (a modified ETA 2892-A2) self winding chronometer with a rhodium plated finish and 44 hour power reserve. It has a domed sapphire crystal with AR coating and the 'sword' hands are also rhodium plated. The second hand features a bright orange tip, which unfortunately can fade when exposed to too much sunlight...this one is OK, thankfully. The brushed titanium bezel insert has blue enamelled markers and there is a HEV at the 10 position. Luminova to the dial markers and hands. Case diameter is 41mm (45mm, inc. crown) and 12mm deep. The titanium models were made in two versions, the more common black dial and the scarcer blue. From internet research, I believe the blue dialled ones started to appear around 1999. The serial no. on this watch dates it to between 1999-2000. There were also several SS versions made. A lot of collectors seem to be of the opinion that this is one watch Omega should never have discontinued.

If I may guys, I have a question for Omega lovers with knowledge. I am considering a lock-down treat to myself of the new Seamaster professional 330. co-axial chronometer 42 mm 210.22.42.20.03.001.    

The thickness of 13.7 mm is a little concerning to me. Are all new the Seamasters in this range the same thickness?  I have researched and sure somewhere along think I may have seen one describes at 11 mm thick.?

I already have two Omegas, a Seamaster dress watch dated 1961 and a vintage  F300Hz.  Any help would be appreciated. (I hope I'm posting in the correct forum with this question).

I tried on a Seamaster 300 today for the first time at the local Omega AD and now I finally get it. 

Rolex/Tudor are winding me up (no pun intended) as I have 2 Tudors, both back with them due to warrentee issues (totaling the 3rd overall) and I'm on a never decreasing waitlist for another Tudor and a Rolex sub. 

Therefore Seamaster's have attracted my attention in recent weeks. Previously discounted due to the dial size but now I've tried some on, the depth and lug to lug is an amazing fit. The quality of these watches is stunning. Why am I waiting 2 years to pay 170% for something no more aesthetically pleasing.

I already have a Speedy Reduced but it's never really been a thunderbolt. All I see is a white on black Chrono which my Autavia's eat for breakfast. 

My trigger finger now itch-eth....

I think at this spectrum range, Omega have it nailed, exquisite watches at appropriate prices.

But I have to be honest, Tudoe do nothing for me and the only Rolex I would like is the Explorer 2 GMT, everything else is just noise.

BUT... drop an Omega in my lap and things start to get stiff, if only 'erself knew...
