Omega Planet Ocean 2201.50.00
This is a cornerstone of my watch collection. It was a grail for about 5 years before I stumbled on an exceptionally good deal. I hope I never have to sell it. This is the original 2500C model, 42mm size. You probably all know about the watch so I don't need to tell you anything, just show you my pictures.

Regards,
Mike.

That's just too cool for school, Syn...Are the strap and the bracelet both OEM, or was the rubber an aftermarket add? This is definitely one I'd like to someday add to my horological holdings...congrats!

I'm looking for a co-axial in a Sea or Speed Master. Daniels was a genius. It took him 25 years to get anyone to mass produce the co-axial escapement.
Great pics of a classic. :)

Thanks for all the compliments.

The bracelet is the original Omega one that came with it. The rubber strap is a third party one I bought on ebay. It's certainly not as nice as the Omega one but it is perfectly good for $40. I wear all types of watches but I generally prefer bracelets. This watch looks great on either style.

The strap looks OEM and is a great combo with the Omega.....

Amazing shots Mike!
Love the PO, had to sacrifice mine for the 243 but a great watch nonetheless and very versatile. I wore mine at the beach, with short or jeans and at the office for meetings with "management" :)
