Put the summer tires (rubber strap) on the Gen 2 Overseas today

I know this has already been well-documented, but we have some new folks, so I thought I'd post it again. Also, this time I got to thinking about how this will be so much easier with a gen 3. I do love how this one looks with the black rubber though, I have to say. Maybe I should add blue? Maybe leather?

I like it, and I'm pulling out my summer watches this weekend as well. :-)

I'm impressed you did it on your own.  I could never get everything aligned to put the pin back in, which I saw a VC do using a small wooden mallet.

Well, at least the ones that will deal with the hot and humid weather with aplomb. Thanks for starting this thread!yes

Great trio

I cannot think of that Ploprof without thinking of monsoon season now. Hehe.

Thanks for reminding me, Jamie.

I have to get around to do that with my OS Chrono and my Planet Ocean.

Always a pleasure to help. Which Planet Ocean do you have?

Thanks Joseph,

I have long liked the Seamaster line and the POs have been great. I really find their design direction interesting lately. Would love to see a pic.  My only Omega is a late 90s "Bond" Seamaster 300 Pro (not Bond-branded though).

Hi Jamie,

It's the PO titanium chrono. 45mm but doesn't look it.

The titanium makes it very comfortable.

I used to own a Seamaster pro 300 as well.

Best,

Joseph

great job!

Thanks for the illustration. That is one nice Overseas chrono you have there.

At this point my summer and winter tires are the same...as a matter of fact, my winter and summer watches are the same! Adds motivation.

I think it's a Dual-Time(?) ;-) (nt)

It was very hot yesterday but it is cold today.

OS straps have to be changed everyday in my area.

I'd love to visit the Nagoya region someday :-) (nt)
