Thread: If a white dial PO and a black dial PO had a baby:

  1. #1

    If a white dial PO and a black dial PO had a baby:

    Picked up this modded PO 8500 a few days ago. Left the factory white dial/white bezel and the owner also bought a grey bezel from a black dial and had it put on the white dial making a striking mod. The original white bezel was included in the sale.


    Started life something like this:










    Now looks like this:









    Let's look at thickness. I'm not saying it isn't think...it is, but here are a few shots relative to other watches instead of in a vaccuum. This compares the PO, the Heuer Autavia and 3570






    The PO and Autavia are virtually the same height










    If you wear the Speedmaster on NATO, it wear just as tall as the PO.










    Beautifully finished twin barrel engine featuring Si14:














    Very, Very nice dial work with thick applied markers and logo and incredible ink














    Like others, not happy that the clasp does not offer micro adjustments but a 1/2 link does the trick:






    At the end of the day, I love the contrast of white dial and grey bezel. It wears tall, but I have other watches that wear just as tall, and few that are thinner so it fits right in with the others in the box.

    nice post - the grey does take it to another level -looks stunning -i think the white is just a little perhaps 'feminine ' or show business if you get my meaning [ im hesitating to say cheap looking] - beautiful watch as it is now

    must say the bezel comes across as more black than grey or perhaps just a little less black than black !but i understand its a challenge to camera even though your images are super -its a no brainer between the bezels !

    Thank you - it is fantastic in real life...much better than my photos. And you're right, the bezel is more grey than black and is a perfect compliment to the dial
