Not a bad looking offering from the biggest LE whores on the face of the earth, although certainly not worth the price difference between the regalar PO with the rubber and bracelet included.

That looks pretty good and better than their latest colourful offerings. What's the best looking Olympic watch though? I'd probably go with the Speedmaster Mark II "Rio 2016"...

Yup, this one is nice...like Rio 16 better but, not by much.

Watch is just fine; band is too over the top. Quality is there, obviously, so it's a style thing. I'd rather have a "traditional" Deep Black in blue and pocket the difference.

Could never see buying a LE Olympic watch of any sort. If it floats the boat, is certainly a quality watch. Would hate to know the premium it runs over the standard version.

I love Planet Ocean watches. But not that one. The colors are just too over the top.

The crystal or the dial seems to have ZrO2 etched into it. That is because the dial is "polished blue ceramic" according to the Omega website. That's taking labelling of features a bit too far IMO.

The first generation of the Planet Ocean was nice. It was a nice tribute to Omega's 1960s diver watches. The second one didn't speak to me, not with its glossy, applied numerals. I really loathe the third one. Shines like dog's bollocks- glossy dial, glossy bezel, glossy numerals. And this one? It's even worse. Though it can't be worse than the Diver 300m "Rio LE"- I don't think anything can. So while this one is bad, I've seen worse Olympic watches from Omega.
