I think you are a little confused the watch picturedThis seagull definitely not worth $300 bucks. The fininishing is poor. Just looking at the lume dot will make you turn off....
Looks like a $80 watch, the most.
The M177s is an Circa $80 watch the 816.351 now costs $300 and is better finnished than the M177 and I am sorry but from these pics I can see no problem with the lume. How exactly is the finish of the M177 poor I am wearing my black faced example right now and can tell you it most certainly is not.
