Welcome to the 300 MC club. I always appreciate your thoughts and comments. I somewhat reluctantly got mine back in March. I say "reluctantly" as I had never seen one "in the steel" and had reservations about the size and PCLs. My favorite dealer even advised against it.
Your comments are right on. Every day "my heart grows fonder." The detailing is stunning. I particularly like the domed crystal and the bezel.

Plan on having SM300MC as soon as my AD gets another one!
I bought the AT41.5 Blue 3 months ago & like it but the 300 really draws me in!
They would be a good combo
Long story short, for some time I have been looking for a weekend watch.
I have a blue Seamaster Chrono which I wear to work but I have always felt that it is a little bit 'formal' for the weekend. I appreciate that it is a 'sort of' tool watch but the bracelet (which I love) gives it a dressier look than I like for weekend use. Anyhow, I love the look of the Planet Ocean and I have tried it on several times over the last couple of years but it has always seemed a little too similar to my Seamaster and the 42mm sits a little high on my wrist (the 45 is too big for me), so I have never gone ahead.
Anyhow, the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial came along and ticked all the boxes for me. It is a timeless simple design, a wonderful movement and it sits well on the wrist, being just the right size for me. Also it looks good on NATO and leather straps. I also like the bracelet. Anyhow, I ended up buying it a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier. It is currently on a custom leather strap while I wait for a NATO to arrive at the Omega Boutique. I plan to use the NATO in summer as the strap needs to be water tolerant and the leather strap in the winter.
Here are a couple of photo's.
The valve amp comes from my workshop - building them is a hobby of mine - one which I have not spent much time on recently due to teenage boys sport etc! They certainly go well with the retro look of the watch (or vice versa?). Good luck with the watch order C7vette, I am sure you won't be disappointed.
Ok, so will be in the 300MC club tuesday!
Much thanks to jmrolls for the hookup to Jim in DC!
Watch is ordered , with the new style box!
Also have OEM Nato strap ordered & should be in a week or so!
Current 2 Omega's
