    Which would you choose?

    Hey everyone,

    I am currently in the market for a Seamaster, and I can't decide upon which model to choose. I'm debating between a Planet Ocean 42mm with the 8500 Calibre movement and the Seamaster 300 57' Reissue. They are both very different but a lot of watch for the money. Which would you choose, based purely on asthetics.

    Thank you in advance!

    The Seamaster 300 is a little more subtle, and therefore more appropriate under a broader range of circumstances. You can wear it with a jacket, as you are doing, or with more casual attire. The Planet Ocean is a bit more colorful and sporty, and while a very attractive watch, it's relative boldness might make it a bit much aesthetically for business occasions.

    Cover yourself, and buy both...

    Looks like you've got the PO8900 there which would be a 43.5mm. Both great watches. Based purely from the photos the 300MC looks great on you.

    Oops, thank you for pointing out my mistakes. The PO is the 8900 Calibre and 43.5mm case size!

    So far I am leaning towards the 300MC as of right now, however something about the PO keeps pulling me back. I'll see how both grows on me overtime.

    I would choose the one in the lower picture, Silver & Black. However, I do like the orange trim on the one in the upper picture, but it has limited wear potential, IMO.

    I completely understand. I had the 300MC and ultimately parted with it and ended up with the PO8900. I have been, and remain, a big fan of the PO's; all 3 gens. Probably why I was attracted the 300MC at the outset - the DNA in the original 300's is clearly present in the PO's. Albeit more so the 2500.

    You can't go wrong! You've narrowed it down to two great watches. One is a little more bold, the other a little more subtle/understated.

    Looking at what you are wearing in the pics the SM 300 MC would probably fit you better. The all black bezel 8900 may be a better option if you really like the PO as it would go with more clothing options. The orange PO is sporty and nice but not the best for a one watch if you want to be able to wear it with everything.

    Do you want a more sporty look or something that can do both sporty and a little more dressy? If the former it's the PO if the latter then the 300.

    To me it's the classic fashion vs style debate. The PO is fashionable while the 300mc is a classic.

    I would buy the 300 in a heartbeat given those options and if money were no object. Regardless of what I would do, both are great performers and look great, as well. Good luck and enjoy!
