I love the He valve from an aesthetic point of view, but unless I start doing saturation diving it's totally useless, lol.

This came in the mail today.... I had always wanted one of these and found one at a great price so I jumped on it





People often see these and think they're plain Subs but then you see the profile and that little Helium Escape Valve gives it away!

And the fact that it doesnt have the date cyclops I really prefer the Sea Dweller over the Sub Date as it looks a lot cleaner for me.

Congrats on the new watch!

Awesome piece... love the lug holes! I used to have a Sub ND with lug holes and I foolishly sold it.

Any recommendations for a good rubber strap? The OEM Omega ones are ~$300 (which is insane, lol) and I've heard good things about Isofrane (~$100).

Any other options/good recommendations?

I personally recommend only the Omega straps to our customers when it comes to any larger MM case. Thats just me though. Companies like Omega/B&R/Oris etc put a substantial amount of time into the r&d behind these straps and it shows in their feel, texture, longevity and even smell.

300 is pricey but hey its a PO.

Yeah, I agree, but countless PO/Seamaster owners have used aftermarket straps with zero issue.....from Hadley, to Hirsch, Isofrane, etc. There isn't much variation in quality rubber straps. An Omega rubber strap is going to be made of nearly the same high quality material as an Isofrane, for example.

As far as metal bracelets go, I think that is a good case for Omega only.

OEM is the only way to go. Like buying a new M3 and putting replica junk LMs on
