I am however immensely satisfied with the all-brushed bracelet which tones down the bling factor a lot. And the difference to the polished lugs is not as bad as I feared.
    I have to be honest with you, but I think the watchmaker made the grain on the brushed finish too coarse for my tastes. I might have left the PCL alone if I knew it would turn out like that. I also think with the straight lugs that if it's all brushed that it would become too monotonous, so I would not change the finish on the watch itself.

    I like the polished parts of the bracelet. My 300MC is the only watch I own that I prefer on a bracelet. I tried it on a NATO, and it just wasn't right.

    Hi Larry, I see your point but I actually like it that the links are brushed quite coarse. For me, the watch is more pf a tool watch. I quite liked the PCLs at first but they soon annoyed me to the point that I wouldn't wear it anymore. I have had it on two different brown straps as well but that just wasn't quite ideal either.
    Whether I will attempt to have the lugs brushed I will see. For now its ok like this. But despite the long lugs I don't think it will look too monotonous, rather even more toolish.
    But tastes are different, and this is just mine.

    I love how people's tastes are different. I was anti-PCL and waited until I found a watch with a well done brushed bracelet before I bought. After wearing it a while, something was just off in my opinion. It just didn't work for me somehow like when I saw this piece online. I put it up for sale and I picked up a new one from Omega (I know, I'm a freak). The PCLs and polished lugs have really changed my mind. I love it just as Omega made it originally. The polished links make the metal bezel ring, and other polished parts of the watch head just pop and seem to really add to the vintage vibe. My personal style is more understated and I never thought a watch with PCLs would work for me. It is more elegant like this now, but not over the top in my opinion. It can totally pull off casual. I can see both sides on the subject though, I'm sure we wouldn't wear the same clothes either.

    I wasn't exactly anti-PCL, but was PCL-hesitant when I fell in love with the Seamaster 300. I was willing to pay extra for the Ti model when I heard it was more scratch-resistant, until the Omega Boutique told me it wasn't true. So I held off and considered other watches.

    Then I saw the Spectre LE, and jumped on it when I had the chance. And I have loved it.

    But since then, I acquired a Rolex with PCLs, and I love the look. Yes, they show scratches, and yes, they show fingerprints, but really only up close. At their worst, they look spectacular from arm's length.

    Now I see the Seamaster 300 with the PCLs and have a new appreciation for them. I think the PCLs really compliment the polished lugs.

    That said, I'm happy to have the BCLs on my Spectre. It's much more of a grab-and-go watch, with a long power reserve, no date to set, and no fingerprints to wipe off the bracelet.

    Until a DaytonaC falls in my lap, I'm happy to have just one watch with PCLs.

    When I had mine I was going to flip due to pcls. I had them brushed and enjoyed for another 6 months. You can always get rebrushed . I would advise against doing the lugs.

    I wanted a Ti but I was not sure if those pcls could be brushed.

    yes, it is all down to personal taste. I was actually pleasantly surprised how good and balanced the watch looked with the PCLs in the wild, after I bought it. But that impression faded the more I wore it. I have had it for around 7 months and thought the time was right for the brush, and I don't regret it. But even now it remains my number 2, the AT is the clear number 1 - because it is the non-Master with date window frame and BCLs.
