I sold my Sinn 104, even though I liked it a lot the highly polished stainless steel finish just was too flashy for me.
The Seamaster 300m looks quite interesting, but I'm a bit intimidated by the size of it. My wrist is around 17-17,5cm.
The Sinn 104 is 47mm lug to lug and the Seamaster is 50mm lug to lug. Do you guys think I could wear the 300m comfortably? To me it seems like it has shorter lugs than the Sinn.

Here's a picture of the 104 on my wrist:

I think you could, but if you are interested in staying with a smaller lug to lug you can look at some of the older Seamasters. The 2254.50 has a lug to lug of approx. 47.5 I believe.

I forgot to add that the 2254.50 is also thinner than the more recent Seamasters, although it does not have a ceramic bezel insert.

Think you should go to an AD and try one on. Take a similar picture like you did with the Sinn and compare. You could even post here - we'll let you know.

I have a previous model of the SMP and rarely wear it due to the size. In fact, since I purchased a Mini Turtle I've not worn the SMP once. It just fits better.

Whenever possible, I think it's always wise to try before you buy, particularly if there's a measurement that "looks too big on paper". Sometimes you'll be pleasantly surprised, other times you'll thank yourself for trying it on first because it just doesn't fit well.

Watchbuys currently has Sinn 104 watches that have a blasted finished. If you like the original 104 except for the shine these limited editions may be what you are looking for.

Just take a green cloth to your Sinn to scuff it up. Just kidding although it's something I might do. Don't do it. The 2000's Seamaster is your solution however if you like the Sinn then just keep wearing it, great watch.

You shouldn’t have any issue...I have the same size wrist and it looks fantastic on mine.

I will try it on at an AD! I also like the Aqua Terra 38mm, but the Seamaster 300m dial just looks insanely cool.

The 300m wears a lot smaller than you'd expect, so I think you'll be fine. I think part of the reason it wears small is that it's relatively thin and sits flat on the wrist, which also makes it a versatile watch since it'll sit under your cuff easily.

As a general guideline: measure your wrist circumference (in mm), divide by the case diameter. If you get something between 4 and 5 you're probably in the ballpark. Outside that range (< 4 too big, > 5 too small), it might work but it's worth investigating further.

Using your smaller wrist measurement, 170mm, and 42mm for the Seamaster (at least I think it's 42mm?), we get a ratio of 4.05. So you're just inside the safe zone. Again, just a guideline. I'd try it on first.

As an example, I'm 160mm and have a 40mm Mido... it's right on the edge of my 'safe' range at a 4.0, but it's made 'safer' by a few elements like the dial design and the short lug to lug. It might still be a little too big, but I don't really care, so at the end of the day if you like it, I wouldn't worry too much.

i have the OG bond smp 41mm and it wears almsot like a 40mm and fits like a glove on my 6.6 inch wrist. My sinn 104 whtie fits comparable to how yours did.

i borrwed my friends new CHROME SMP and it fit relatively well on me. It was a beast of a watch with the bracelet though. Best would be still to try it on. I think it would like find on you.

I believe the 2254 is under 48mm lug to lug. This size is on the threshold of too big for my 16cm wrist, but it does still work so I think with a 17+ wrist you should be fine!
