    Congrats, sjb!

    Number 757 has arrived and I am over the moon. Picked it up 2 hours ago.
    Wears much smaller and is far less obstrusive than the 300MC for someone like me with a small wrist (6.3").
    The finish is fabulous, I love the vintage vibe and the PSLs also make less blingy than the PCLs of the 300MC. Love the cognac leather strap and the brown Nato as well so I feel I bought three watches in one. There will be a lot of strap swapping.
    This could very well make me a one-watch person again.
    I definitely recommend to anyone who likes the 300MC but has small wrists (or wants an even more vintage and subdued look) to take a look at this LE while they are still available. I put myself on the list only three weeks ago.

    And special thanks to Dan again for convincing me with his pics and messages. I owe you a beer or three, mate. 😉

    Thanks guys, and looking forward to seeing your RM and Speedy when you pick them up.
    I really love the smaller size of the SM compared to the 300MC. And despite the height of 14mm it wears much smaller because the domed crystal contributes at least 2mm above the bezel. So it actually looks like an 11 or 12mm watch. The 300MC has a flat crystal so the whole thing really showed its 15mm.

    Huge congrats John! She looks perfect on your wrist. It really could be the one watch. I always loved the MC, still do in fact but it wears a little too large for my liking. The LE allows those of us with small wrists to wear the design with straight lugs. It is quite thin and the domed crystal really is a thing of beauty.

    Enjoy in great health mate

    Thanks Dan, this seems indeed the perfect one for people like us. I also still like the MC a lot, and it would have been great if they hüad made the dial as dark on the LE. That's my only complaint, but only a very minor one.

    Hope this helps mate.

    Nice.

    How big is your wrist? I am about to buy the Seamaster 300 on the left.
