    Omega Seamaster 300 - 41mm vs 42mm

    Hey enthusiasts. I've been recently looking at the SMP300 and recently have begun to really dig the blue!


    I was going to get a pre-2018 model with the in house movement (the one without the waves on the dial), but I've been seeing pictures of the new 42mm seamaster. I'm wondering does anyone have both that can do side by side shots at different angles. I'm particularly interested in how high the watch sits on the wrist. I heard the 42mm is now 13mm, up from 10mm. My plan was to put it on a gray person but am worried it would be too top heavy.

    Anyways - pictures would be appreciated. Also
    , def open to thoughts on the two versions of the smp.

    Thanks!

    Pop to an AD and try it on for yourself. See how it feels on your wrist, take some photos and report back here. Much more useful to you.

    I don't have the new model but tried it on before. It wore about the same as the SMPc. Comparing to the classic SMP bond 2531, the increase in thickness can be felt on the wrist

    The size is entirely down to you. All I would say is the smaller version without the waves has a black date wheel on a blue dial. I looked at that watch a while back and I think it ruins the watch. That sounds extreme but its the little details that make a premium product so nice. My AT has the same colour print on the date as the dial. To my eyes it looks like omega just bought a job lot of black date wheels and put them into all of the SMPs. The newer version would be my vote but you can get great discounts on the previous gen which is still a fantastic watch.

    I think the original 300m were closer to 10mm

    The SMPc is 13mm thick with the 2500D movement

    The SMPmc is 13.9mm

    I have had both and the difference is fairly negligible. Both wear the same to me even though the newer one is slightly larger.

    I know you meant "grey perlon" in your OP, but now I can't get the image out of my head of an octogenarian falling over because you placed a watch on his shoulder.

    The 2254 was something like 10mm thick, the newer 300s are thicker. That said, while I ultimately went with a PO, the non-wave dial 300 you're talking about is probably the most comfortable watch I've ever worn on a steel bracelet. And given how they're designed I don't think the 1mm difference will be noticeable.

    Don't own both but I tried them on when I was deciding. To be the size difference was obvious, with the newer model being noticeably thicker and heavier.

    I happen to have taken photos of each on wrist, hope it helps.

    I ended up getting the newer version as my pick out of the two, but the size and thickness make it a bit tiring to wear sometimes. I'm considering selling it and picking up an older model that's more comfortable on the wrist.
