    Seiko MM200 va MKII Paradive gen3

    Hi
    I am considering to trade my Seiko MM200 (blue bezel on rubber) for a MKII Paradive gen 3 (no date on nato)
    Both watches are about 6 months old and I assume that the consitions are similar without scratches, dings, aso
    What do you guys think of that trade?

    Just me, I don't know anything about the other watch, but the Seiko looks more refined. The other case looks like a 6 day shop class project..

    I briefly owned the Prospex SBDC053 on the bracelet, and for the money, it’s a really really nice watch. I’ve never handled a MkII, but I’ve been eyeing the Paradive, and I have to say, your comparison isn’t bad. But I think that’s part of the appeal of the MkII — it’s a utilitarian no-frills mil-spec(ish) tool watch. While the watches are same price range and similar specs, I feel they’re otherwise apples and oranges.
    OP, if you’re looking for a less polished, more tool-ish type of watch, I don’t think it’s a half bad trade. And I believe the MkII is slightly more scarce on the market than the Seiko, meaning if you miss the Seiko, you can always get another one. If you’ve done your pricing research, and the values match up, I say go for it.

    Iíve owned both, have sold both now but if I were to buy one again it would be the Paradive.

    The matte and shiny parts on the Seiko felt off to me.
    The paradive - while fairly plain felt more high end than the Seiko. Itís really well made. If it was smaller I would have kept it.

    Best of luck both are great watches but my vote is for the MKII.

    Well with the Paradive you certainly do not have to worry about anything lining up correctly like you do with many new Seiko's. You should probably move this to the MKII forum and Seiko. I own the Paradive gen3 as well and it is a superb tool watch. Of these two, and I am a yuuuge seiko fan, the Paradive gets my vote hands down. Name:  F629406F-9C16-4A96-9B60-C396B297CEEF.jpeg

    The specs on the Paradive G3 shows it is a solidly built watch; and, if its toolish aesthetics and functionality appeal to you then go for the trade.

    Keep the Seiko
    forget the MkII swap
    and buy a Precista Royal navy PRS 82
    which looks very similar to ur Paradive and is much cheaper and awesome
