    Hey, if that were true, companies like Ed Brown, Les Baer, Wilson Combat...and so on and so forth, would not have the following that they do ;) A classic design, with modern materials and manufacturing= A win in my book! :-D

    It's remarkable how alike the new 300 Master Coaxial is to the original Mk1 Seamaster 300, but I am with vintageguy in liking the Mark 2 from the mid-60s better than the Mk 1 or the new watch.

    Re: If you have been considering the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial . . .

    I've been looking at pictures of the SM300MC online for months and I think I've read just about every review of it and I could not wait to check it out at an AD. I finally tried it on on the weekend and I found that, for me, it just didn't work. I still think it looks great in pictures, but when I put it on and saw it in the steel, it just wasn't for me. It actually made me love my Seamaster 2254 even more because it does work so well for me. I still think the SM300MC is a great watch and I still really like looking at pictures of it.

    In the pictures it looks like the bracelet is positioned in front of wrist joint bone. Is that where you wear your watches? Just curious.

    That was the first thing that jumped out at me when I looked at the pics. In the first shot the watch looks like it has slid down and is covering a significant amount of the back of your hand.

    I think it would look much better behind the wrist bone; on the arm, away from the wrist.

    Yeah, that's where I usually wear my watches. My wrists are pretty boney and I find it uncomfortable if they sit above my wrist bone. When I tried it on I didn't find anything wrong with how it fit other than it is thick compared to my 2254. The bracelet was also not sized to my wrist, so the watch slid down a little more than usual and the lugs hung over my wrist. The reason I decided it was not for me was that it was a little too shiny, I felt that the vintage matte look of the dial didn't fit with all the shiny steel and that the it was not as legible at all angles as my 2254. For some reason, though, I still think it's a great looking watch.
