Seiko Marinemaster 300m SBDX001
I'm curious about this model (reference SBDX001). I've poked around but haven't found sound explanations of what one is getting for 5-6 times the amount that watches like the Samurais and Monsters offer. The Marinemaster costs what an upper-level ETA 2824-2 Swiss diver costs. It's attractive, but .... Anyone care to enlighten me?

Not sure I can enlighten you, but I have only ever read good things about the MM. I used to lurk around a bit on TZ before coming to WUS, and I remember the MM being universally popular and very highly regarded amongst owners and Seiko enthusiasts. I understand that the build quality is excellent, and that the movement is extremeley accurate - something that unfortunately cannot be said for the lower-end Seiko auto movements.
The fact that one can be had new for not much more than a Doxa, or a Sinn U1, to name but two popular dive brands, makes me think that the MM is certainly not over priced.
