    Marine Master SBDX017 or Sinn U1 on Strap?

    Long time lurker, first time posting.

    I'm looking to buy a diver in the $2k range, and I feel like these are the best in the price range. I'm having trouble deciding which one I should buy. Has anyone had experience with the two?

    I prefer the mm300 for several reasons, first of which is it has a bracelet. I prefer the case design and overall look as well.

    MM300 can feel a little top heavy. However in my opinion, it looks much better than the U1 on both steel and a Crafter Blue rubber strap.

    If you can stretch your budget a little more, the Tudor Black Bay is another popular option.

    SInn U1 is built like a tank.I have owned the U2 and it has been banged around in many different oceans and lakes and does not even show wear.

    I had the Black Bay with the in-house movement, but ultimately sold it. It was a scratch magnet.
    The U1 seems to be the more durable/beater choice.

    Owned both MM300 and U1. Sold the U1.
    U1 is nice but no where near the level of the Seiko.
    Tudor, naa. Seiko MM300 far better. Think Rolex is nearer a comparison. Tudor in house mvmnt may be nearer a competitor...
    Peace people

    If you're looking for something that is near scratch resistant think about Demasko - top German engineering!

    I own both , they are both great watches with completely different looks

    the seiko is pure quality and attention to detail all over it really is pure class I can't fault mine at all it's the top Watch in my collection my favourite

    but if there was ever a zombie apocalypse the sinn u1 is the watch I would grab its totally bullet proof made from submarine steel, I have my suspicions it actually UFO material it looks exactly the same as it did when I got it not a single swirl on it
