    It's a superb watch in a daily role. Between the Pulsometer and this I haven’t really been wearing any other watch regularly and certainly not for more than a quick try on, for quite some time. Not what I expected when I bought it as a consolation for the fact that no Speedmaster was available to me. It's turned out to be the most wearable of many other watches I have acquired this year. I was iffy about the lume colour at first but now I am neutral about it. Even with the initial doubts the positive features of this watch for me outweighed those doubts by far so I purchased it for these merits. I can only say that it doesn’t feel out of place on this style watch. In shaded areas where it is sunny the lume brightness softens the darker tan hue to a lighter yellowish marker if you take note of those sorts of things. But it's lume's (and dials) variable looks are not altogether undesirable things imo. The artifice of the aging is apparent when analysed but it doesn’t stick out once you begin using the watch. For some even that might not be enough but I think owners who wear this piece for a short while even understand what I mean.

    A few other thoughts on the Seamaster 300 60LE...

    The size is perfect. As a lover of diving watches big and small I find this to be spot on. An eternal size that will always remain neither too big nor too small imo.

    The overall style and look capture a genuine vintage vibe. It's done very well. The domed sapphire crystal is a nice touch but the polished O of the inner fixed bezel area is just fantastic. With the dome sapphire it creates a true porthole maritime type look of old. I think Gerald Genta took this as inspiration for the many other porthole style watches he designed. It's on no other diving watch I own and this uniqueness adds to its appeal to me at least. This is even apparent in dark conditions where the polished O and the hands reflect light and allow easy reading of the time.

    Anyhow it's just superb imo.

    Indeed well said, everything in fact from size to loom colour.

    It is also my daily wearer and one of my observations is that it is far less blingy than some of the pics suggest. Yes, the top of the lugs and the sidelinks are polished but that doesn‘t make it too shiny. The 300MC has far more bling through the bezel and PCLs. Amd of course one can tone the look even more down with the leather strap or the Nato. To me it looks best on bracelet or Nato and I change between the two regularly.

    Well done Dan. Now the next step is realising that it is much nicer and rarer than a six-digit Sub.
