    Picking a Seamaster

    I actually tried the grey on as a bit of fun a few weeks back. I first didn't think much of the grey but on the wrist it looked fabulous. I've seen the blue up close too, a friend has one and it does look great.

    Can I ask, what other watches do you have in your collection and what colour are they?

    Sometimes people diversify colours. But even I bought a second blue dialed Omega because I loved it so much.

    From my window-shopping:


    Deep down, I would probably still pick the blue. There's something about dive watches being the colour of the deep blue sea.

    Picking a Seamaster

    I have a Speedmaster 1957 coaxial, Tudor Pelagos, Marathon GSAR, and Hamilton Khaki X-Wind. I’ve owned countless others over the years including omegas and Rolex Etc. That’s why I’m considering the color change.

    Blue if you want to follow the crowds, grey if you want to be a little different

    Picking a Seamaster

    Flip a coin, before it lands you'll know which side you wished it'll land on.

    If I were to buy one for myself, I'd buy the grey because I got the older blue. If I didn't, I'd go for blue.

    My contribution is: go blue

    Does anyone know if the AT quilted rubber strap will fit on the 300m?

    For me it would be the blue, I like the grey, but think I would tire of it in a while.

    Re: Picking a Seamaster

    Ive tried them all on. The grey is quite funky initially but I think you would tire of it. The problem with the grey is that it almost clashes with the steel. Its a couple of shades off the steel colour and to me it looks like they couldnt match the dial. On bracelet it completely washes out the dial. I have the grey dial aqua terra which is a similar tone and I dont wear it very much due to the colouring of the dial. The blue is pretty funky but its a strange shade of blue. It seems to have a slight green (teal?) tinge to it under certain lights but out of all colours its the one that really stands out if youre looking for a really bright summer stunner. The black is the most subdued and classic of the lot but still had a nice sparkle to it in some lights but perhaps its the "safe" option. Im still debating which colour myself so I would be interested to see which option you choose.
