CONGRATS!! Fantastic choice! We all love ours too :) I love the included plastic peeling pics, we all know the giddy feeling that comes with peeling the plastic off that shiny new 300 Master :-D Enjoy your spectacular watch! It will happily accompany you wherever you may choose to take it!



Well...I'm glad that I held out for a decent discount, and THRILLED to have this piece in hand. What a SUPER watch!!!

It showcases all of Omega's recent watchmaking innovations/achievements in one watch....What more you can ask??

Great to see the love for this watch - it certainly deserves it!
Are you splashing your Seamasters in the sea or leaving them dry?
Mine will go on the annual diving trip off Hainan this summer, along with my TII-Typhoon. The past couple of times the Sub 114060 has taken the high end watch seat on that trip.

As you know, I don't do NATO.

Here again is my 2-piece "Bond NATO" which fits nicely:

I really like this two piece bond NATOs! I like the ability to show the movement, you have peaked my interest once again!! Did you acquire from the boutique? Or another source?

Found it on the famous auction site in these colors:



Do a search for 2 piece NATO.

The best part:

Note: I like the PCL bracelet with micro-adjustment just fine - it feels nice and solid on the wrist. But wow! The tropic wears noticeably lighter and really hugs my wrist. While I didn't/forgot to weigh the watch and bracelet (d'oh!), the watch and tropic tips the scale at 93g; the bracelet alone weighs 82g.

Two words: Loving it!

Wow, looks awesome! Would you need curved spring bars for that one, or are the holes straight?

I no longer have 1 to compare with. The 300mc is thicker but the numbers do not work well for comparison. The 300mc has some of the thickness below the lugs which imo makes it wear thinner than expected.

Sold my 2254.50 when the 300 MC arrived. Sorry but I did not take any comparison shots.

I've owned three 2254.50s and I thought the third one would be the keeper. Wrong!

i just switched by SM300 back to its bracelet after a few weeks on a leather strap. I must say the bracelet feels great. I feel it results in a more balanced feel to the watch and the ability to micro adjust is just gold to me. Though i found the leather strap comfortable it did feel either a couple of milimetres too tight or too loose when i changed holes. But because the leather made the watch so light i could still easily wear the watch just a tad to loose. I struggled when it was just a bit too tight.

However with the bracelet the perfect fit is possible and the watch also feels more balanced and not a little top heavy. Still i prefer the look of it on the leather strap. i don't mind the look of my PCLs but they seem to attract finger print smudges which does annoy me a bit. if only they did not smudge!! i can live with the fine scratches.

what are the thoughts of others who have tried different straps on this watch? what do you like the look of and what do you find the most comfortable?
