You sound very indecisive. Perhaps you need something in White & BlueI set my mind on white dial...best looking...white did not speak to me.. blue was gorgeous.. black was also stunning.. the white..white always disappoints me.. leaning towards black... the blue on bracelet was more stunning... blue strap. the black most versatile.
Nato straps are your friend here, my friend!As for the blue model, yes it is "the seamaster color" as several people have pointed out, and I find it gorgeous on the bracelet. I do however find it a bit to much on the blue rubber strap, and as I mentioned, I want to use it on the rubber strap to tone it down a bit when I travel etc.
Hmm, I do have an seiko skx007 that I wear with a nato, but I find that nato straps tend to add quite much thickness, so I would prefer the rubber strap… But maybe you do have a point 🤔Nato straps are your friend here, my friend!
I posted my blue SMP on a variety of straps earlier in the thread- it really does change the perceived "blueness" depending on the color of strap.
Great collection. What strap do you have on your blue one in this picture? It is really cool looking.I bought the black…gorgeous. Then I ran across a deal on a blue one I couldn’t possibly pass up. My wife bought me the white one for Christmas this year. I think they all look better in person than in pictures…and they look fantastic in pictures. The white dial isn’t as “glossy” as the other two, but is just as eye-catching. I just put my white one on the bracelet, but no pics, yet.

I think a lot of people feel this way about the Seamaster 300 lineup. I guess to start with relatively well-known things, most images on any watchmaker's website are generally renders instead of photos. They're typically pretty faithful to how the watch looks in real life, but because these are essentially computer-generated images they can sometimes over or under exaggerate colors or tones. Even in watch magazines or social media pages, lighting is usually optimized to make the watch "pop" in ways that a watch might not normally "pop" in real life. So it's always good to make you like what you see just by looking at poorly taken images or just seeing it in person.And I must say, the white did not speak to me at all, the blue was gorgeous, and the black was also stunning.
I have the white and as you can see by your pic it's a lot easier to read than the other colors.Same situation here. I didn’t choose yet, but the white looks plain, bigger and less versatile than the others. I’m tending to the black. Can’t decide since 2020 :/

That is another thing I noticed before I purchased my white dial. It is much legible to me in all conditions. I think it’s because the white ceramic is less reflective (glossy) than the blue or black dials.I have the white and as you can see by your pic it's a lot easier to read than the other colors.
may I ask what bracelet that is? Uncle Seiko? Thanks.I went to try on in the boutique and came to the same conclusion as the OP. The white dial is not as nice as it appears in the photos. It looks plastic not vibrant at all.
I went with black... Probably get a grey dial (the most unique one) when the right deal comes along.
