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

    do not read the review in the current issue of Watchtime.

    Nor this blog:

    Dive Watch Review: Another Take on the Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial | WatchTime - USA's No.1 Watch Magazine

    Consider yourself duly warned.

    Well, the original would be this one:

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

    I became rather irritated by the long, flat lugs and the even longer end-pieces of the bracelet (lug to lug is about 48 mm; with the bracelet, it is about 53 mm)
    This has always been my problem with the SM300. I can live with the 41mm diameter, and even with the now traditional Omega thickness, but I cannot abide a watch that hangs straight off the sides of my wrist. Though my wrist is about 7½" around, it is barely 63mm wide at the watch-wearing point. As much as I want to love it, the proportions simply are not right for me (and, sadly, I seem to say that about most of Omega's new offerings ).

    I was a little worried but as you say shape of wrist matters. Mine is pretty flat thus with 7.25 it fits fine. The thickness just isn't a problem due to the design. Mine does not wear as "thick" as the Pelagos did.

    Looks great on the speed master 45th Apollo 11 NATO strap. I can't say enough about how much I like the strap I bought a spare for my 45th.

    Yes, the long lugs were one reason why I stuck to my plan to buy the AT. While I like the 300 and all the pics of it here it just did not look right on my arm. I tried it on three times!

    The lugs are a major draw for me now. At first I thought they were too long but I really like how they look with a NATO. I agree that it fits weird when on bracelet but thats a non issue as it would live on other straps personally.
