While i like the PO better, i don't know if it justifies an extra $1,800.

I personally own both, but prefer the PO42 because of the design.

How about a pictorial faceoff?

I own a 2500 PO and and a Bond 1120. Very different watches and obviously not close to the new 8500 ceramic ones. I'll share my thoughts anyway. The Bond is a pleasure to wear. I like the fact that it is thin and light. The bracelet is very comfortable. The handset is unique and interesting. The PO even at 42mm is a big watch. Quite the looker. I like them both for different reasons. I don't which one I'd choose, I'll tell you that I seem to wear the Bond more than the PO.

Had both (no PO pics ) nothing beats the Bond bracelet, add the new in-house mov.and is a winner, dislike the AR applied in both sides of the crystal on the PO, prone to scratch.
Here is my Bond GMT, only one with a sapphire window case back ;)
