I went to the OMEGA Store ..........was looking for the 2254.50 , low and behold they had none in stock. Last 3 pieces they had "FLEW" out the window. They did have a limited series (only 100 made) Seamaster, it's the same size as the 2254.50, but with a white gold bezel. It was special ordered to commemorate the 50th anniversary of something having to do with the PANAMA CANAL. It has a panamanian flag etched into the back of the case. I was just about to buy it (thinking I would switch out the white gold bezel, which i did not like).........and the Manager shows me a WHITE FACED GMT. Only once before had I seen this in pictures. Let me say this......pictures DO NOT give this watch justice. Here is my review: BRAND: OMEGA BOUGHT: JULY 12, 2008 WHERE: OMEGA STORE -AD MODEL: SEAMASTER GMT FACE: WHITE BEZEL: WHITE BRACELET: STAINLESS STEEL BRAND: OMEGA ---- MOST KNOW OF IT OR MAYBE OWN(ed) one. FACE: CLEAN. I CAN'T STRESS HOW CLEAN IT IS. IT'S SUPERB. NO "MUMBO JUMBO" ON THE FACE. THE WAVES ON THE DIAL ARE JUST STUNNING........... x100. LUME: ON THIS DIAL IS AMAZING. YOU CAN LIGHT UP NY CITY IN A BLACKOUT WITH THIS BABY. SCORE: 10 POINTS BEZEL: LISTED AS WHITE, BUT ACTUALLY LOOKS SILVER IN COLOR. EASY TO READ. IT COMPLEMENTS THE WATCH. WOULD HAVE BEEN INTERESTING TO SEE A REAL "WHITE COLORED" BEZEL. EASY TO GLANCE AT. FONTS ARE NICE. SCORE: 10 POINTS CASE: RUGGED. WELL BUILT. NICE FIT AND FINISH. HEAVY. I CAN SEE HOW AN OMEGA CAN SURVIVE TWO TOURS IN IRAQ. THE BACK OF THE CASE HAS THE SEAMONSTER ENGRAVING.....ITS GREAT TO AVOID CASE MOVEMENT ON THE ARM. SCORE: 10 POINTS BRACELET: WELL BUILT. SOLID. NO STRETCHY FEEL. I WAS ABLE TO OBTAIN A GREAT FIT FOR ME, I DID REMOVE 4 LINKS. SCORE: 9 POINTS CLASP: I LOVE THE CLASP WITH THE TWO BUTTON RELEASE. SCORE: 9 POINTS CROWN: NICELY RECESSED (sp?). Stylized omega logo. Does not "dig" into my fingertips like my Rolex does. SCORE: 10 POINTS. SWORD HANDS ON THE DIAL: NICE, WITH PLENTY OF LUME. THE RED GMT HAND LOOKS LIKE IT IS DRAGGING ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE WATCH FACE. OVERALL: @ THIS PRICE, I DOUBT YOU WILL FIND A BETTER BUILT WATCH. BESIDES, THE MOST DANGEROUS THING THIS WATCH WILL EVER SEE IS WRITING A 'SCRIPT OR TWO. ROLEX AT TWICE THE PRICE IS NOT A BETTER WATCH, IT SIMPLY HOLDS MORE BRAND RECOGNITION, THUS CAN CHARGE HIGHER PRICES AND WE ARE PROGRAMMED TO CORRELATE HIGHER PRICES WITH BEING BETTER. I MAY ACTUALLY KEEP THIS WATCH WITH ME FOR SOME TIME. I WANT TO THANK MY WIFE FOR BUYING THIS WATCH FOR ME. PICTURES ARE COMING SOON.
