The liquidmetal part of the bezel is all of the numbers and markings. Liquidmetal is a special alloy that can be used in manufacturing in ways similar to plastic injection-molding but, when hardened, is virtually scratch and erosion-proof.
Your thoughts about the model:

Sorry...I am an Omega fanboy and am not willing to spend an additional $1200 for a bezel.

Plus, the dial is way too shiny for my taste!

BTW - I would not trade my "regular PO 42mm" for the liquified version...awesome watch!

It looks great but I'd think twice about spending the extra money until they figure out what's ailing the 2500 in the current POs.

i love the p.o.'s, i think its one of the best looking watches out there, but i would not pay the extra just for that bezel. it may be worth it just not to me. steve

I think it's pretty OUTSTANDING ! Very Happy ..On the one hand you already have a
legendary watch, and company with a great history, along with reputation.
Then to add in such a new, and exciting innovation as the liquid metal theme,
just makes it that much more interesting. Not to mention COOL ! Cool It's just
REALLY beautiful, and evidently near indestructible TOO by the sound of it !!!
Will be interesting to see if Omega uses this process with more of their watch
models, or we see it, or similar ideas used by other watch companies in the
future. ..Super watch, along with topic sir !!! ..Thanks alot, and welcome
aboard by the way !

live watch actually "burn"...
in comparing with conventional steel and even gold - attracts the attention much more!

The dial is that shiny because it is blk ceramic.

Love the PO! Need to see the liquid metal in person. Would consider it if it looked as good as it's description. Side by side comparison, older version PO vs. Liquid Metal. Great watch in either case!

Agree with Northwestguy. The PO is just a great looking timepiece. I really like the idea of essentially scratch proof bezels/bezel inserts, too (ceramic or sapphire, in particular). Price difference for the "liquid metal" version seems steep but may not be unreasonable given the upgrades and limited availability.
