Ah, I see....interesting....although I would never be sure if I turned the bezel on a given day...not sure if that would work for me...
actually turning the bezel is a prerequisite, obviously :) but it does work. Becomes part of the morning ritual very quickly

Still bonding but really liking this watch. Trying it on a OEM brown calf and I think it will work!



Brown goes well with the vintage pantina I think for the SM300, it looks good

Cheers :)


The name is Bond, Basildon Bond I have letters after my name

PICTURE REQUEST:

Does anybody have a picture of the non-Bond (standard) SM300 on the Bond (grey and black stripes) OMEGA NATO strap?

Thanks!

Can people who got their bracelets brushed post some pictures in different settings (light, distance and angle)? I mostly use a rubber strap, and thus enjoy the more blingy PCL's for more special occasions. But if it looks awesome brushed I might have to reconsider..!

I thought I posted this yesterday, but I don't see it. Anyway, I think the PCLs are very nice and really give the watch some serious wrist-presence. I also think the bracelet with PCLs really ties in nicely with the case. All-in-all, the bracelet is excellent. No brushing for me.

BTW, I keep coming back to this thread to see Om3ga_fan's latest pictures - despite the fact that I often have the same watch on my wrist! Love it. Chris975d also posted a great outdoor shot above.

Hello all! Just read through all the pages on this thread as I have the opportunity to get a used but still in good condition SM300 for what I consider to be a alright price for me.

Just wondering if there is anything that I can and/or need to look out for to determine the authenticity of the watch?

It's probably a long shot but a pictorial guide (everyone loves moar pictures of the SM300 right) would be much appreciated!

Cheers and thanks in advance!

When shopping for this watch and googling images, I stumbled upon a replica watch forum. There are some very convincing fakes out there (at least per online images), so be careful. I've never handled a fake Omega, but a fake would probably "feel" like a fake in your hand. I did check out my brother in law's fake Panerai, and you could tell just by holding it.

Visually, what I saw from the fake forum was that the fakes did not have polished crown heads, did not have a polished bezel base under the coin edge, and the print on the case back tended to wear away after a few months. The movement through the display case back has small diffs, but is pretty convincing. I don't know if newer versions of the fakes still have these tells or not.

If buying online, obvious best bet is to buy from a trusted seller.
