You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

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 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.

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.
