            You guys are gonna have to tell me what 'PO' stands for. I can usually work out these abbreviations, such as PP = Patek, SMP = Omega Seamaster, JLC = Jaeger etc. But can't work out PO.

            Anyway here's a few pics of the Olipai. The movement is running ridiculously well, with plenty of power reserve. I'll time it properly sometime as it could be very interesting. The strap in these pics is the leather one off Ian's custom De Rieter. It looked really good, but didn't have enough substance to it for the rather large Olipai. It'll need a nice thick leather strap, rubber, maybe a Zulu, or maybe mesh. I've got it on an olive drab nylon Mil strap at the moment, which works a bit better but I'll get something better for sure.

              Leroy, those are great and excellent photos, they look good on the wrist which is always important! :thumbup: . The box for the Sotto is very impressive. BTW, PO= Planet Ocean.

                Ah yes the Planet Ocean. I thought it looked familiar. Thanks for setting me straight Steve. It's quite a clever watch then this Olipai. They've walked the fine line between homage and replica very nicely. They've branded it with their own brand for starters. And although it's not a chrono it doesn't have the useless non-active subdials that you see on some 'replicas'. The dial at 9 is day of the week, the one at 3 is the date (you'll notice there's no date window), and the one at 6 is a 24hr hand which is pretty cool. The pushers are used to set the day and date and both crowns are screwdown. About the only disappointment is the style of the pushers I guess. As it's not a chrono it would been nice to just see some small pushers, might've even added another distinguishing feature making it more of a homage.
