    I just have the impression that the clasp is extremely prone to scratching, much more so than on any other bracelet I've ever had.

    I find the clasp no more prone to scratching that other Omega clasps. A couple of swipes of 15 grit will quickly restore the finish of the clasp.

    Agreed. I haven't had any issues with the clasp on my 300 at all.

    Was going to try the strap from my PO and see if it would work on the 300. Will have to wait until I can get to the OB.

    Hey buddy, just try a few times an you will get the hang of it! Practice makes perfect. No doubt the first try will be nerve racking!

    I wore mine with the plastic cover on the clasp until it fell off about 4 weeks!! When I bought it The AD said "you should keep the plastic on the clasp as long as possible" sooo I did! your clasp looks flawless do you put tape on it each day?? LOL-

    Lol. Not a bad idea! No protection of any kind thus far. Have been careful/lucky. Tho now I've probably jinxed myself! When I'm flying a keyboard I usually take it off and rest it on a Seamaster polishing cloth.

    Can't comment on that as I don't own any other Omegas with a clasp But mine's completely scratched up and looks way worse than my Sub's (and that one's 14 years old). Only used it for desk-diving and the occasional swim in the pool :-/

    I'm in the same boat for my AT with PCLs. I quite like the look but they do scratch way too much. Where as the brushed AT bracelet still looks new.

    Having same exact debate brush them or polish them.

    Let us know what you decide.

    How did you do that!!!. Mine has heaps of little scratches. The polished centre links have however held up pretty well. The fine scratches on them don't bother me at all. I am more annoyed with the smudges!.

    Despite all these little issues I still quite like the bracelet and find it so much more balanced and versatile than the leather strap I have for it. The leather looks good but at the moment the practicality of the bracelet wins.

    I purchased my strap from Bas and Lokes which have a large range of hand made leather straps available in 21mm. Bit pricey but very comfortable. I am thinking about getting a couple more from them.
