    Tried on the GSOTM yesterday....

    Had the opportunity to try on the GSOTM yesterday at the Seattle boutique, so I thought I'd share some pics.

    It wears very nicely, even on my 6" wrists. The lug to lug isn't too bad for a 44mm watch, which surprised me. The case finishing is amazing. I really liked the high polished ceramic case, it looks more like a polished titanium case in person. The Titanium dial is pretty cool too, has sort of a shimmery effect and Omega's done a really good job with the lume on it.

    I wasn't even considering this piece before, but after trying it out now, I think I can pull it off. Now I have to decide if I should go for this or the Geophysic later this year....

    Profile shot, you can see it wears quite nicely for a 44mm watcg.



    Comparo shot next to my 38mm El Primero, really highlights the short l2l

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. I hadn't seen a shot that captures how shiny the ceramic is.

    It's a lovely piece, and they've done a fantastic job on the ceramic.

    But it looks far too big for your wrists, both the top and bottom lugs reach over the end of your wrists, the strap seems to just drop down.

    Your El primero is twice as nice.

    I like the el primero more... The short lug2lug of the gsotm just throws me off, when compared to the el primero it looks like a rather heavy set guy with very short limbs. The el primero's look is just better and more balanced.

    I like the dial and the slick look of the ceramic material, but the Zenith is still something I find more attractive.

    This and the Geophysic are the top 2 on my current list.

    Part of me is thinking if I spend the same budget I can have the GSOTM or the Geophysic in steel plus a Nomos Orion 1989 for a bit of grey.

    Chances of finding all three available the same day for decision time seems slim though

    That is a killer piece but, I think a moon watch would fit your wrist better. What do I know? If you like it , rock it out!
