This is leather-backed though right? I thought my OB told me not to take this one in the water.

thats what I asked my salesman @ the boutique I was surprised how this oem strap feels and looks you would swear its all leather but in fact it’s all rubber inside & out! I have never seen a higher quality rubber strap.

It has been a while since I posted in this thread. Nice that it's still going strong.

Just finished yard duty with the 300. Still looks great after roughly 5 years of all sorts of different work. Sure, it has a few character marks now, but it is great all around and literally suits any occasion. Also still keeps great time, as one might expect.

Good watch.

Been coming in this thread for years and keep coming back. Omega copped it when they released this one, but the haters were wrong - it has aged better than almost everything else, and it continues to look modern, yet vintage, and always refined.

I remember when I first saw this watch back in 2014 or maybe it was 2015 and I told myself I'd get one someday......well someday landed this week and can't believe I waited this long to pick one up. Omega bond nato is enroute via FedEx as I type, but I am digging the bracelet PCL's and all. I can't believe how this watch can pull double duty between boardroom and pool, and be flashy or tool with a simple change in straps and lighting. Just amazing!

Not sure I can pull it off.

In my humble opinion, I think it looks good. The lugs don't extend past the edges of your wrist and the dial and bezel don't overwhelm your wrist.

I'm guessing your wrist is 6.5-6.6 inches?

6.3. It might be the thickness. I'm used to my speedy.

Well, for having a 6.3" wrist you wear it pretty well.

Yeah, at first the thickness might take a while to get used to. I was used to wearing thick watches before I got the 300MC so it didn't take me long to adjust. At the moment I'm wearing my 300MC on a leather NATO...now THAT's thick.

Anyway, as I said, you wear it well. Looks good to me. Enjoy it!

The Black Bay Eta was too long for my liking. The SMP300 2018 a bit too big at whole. I tried the 43 mm PO today and it was way too massive. The 39 PO was too small.

Will this one just be perfect for my 7“ wrist? I was at 3 ADs today and none had one to try.

7.125 to 7.250 inch wrist reporting in - depending on heat/cold, sweating, etc. IMO - this watch works for anything over a 7 inch wrist and possible thinner wrists if they are flat. As stated the nato adds additional height but it works for me. I just typically prefer bracelets unless I'm doing extreme outdoorsy stuff and/or water sports - then it goes on the nato.

The splash of orange clashes with my choice of shirt a bit, but why not
