    Sidebar: today I was on the receiving end of some grief from a couple of colleagues about the alleged ridiculousness of the expense of my Omega's. I simply replied that in my humble opinion a man isn't fully dressed unless wearing a quality timepiece. That is to say something that means something to them - not anyone else.

    I agree - while I like having the date on my watches, it really turned out to be a non-issue with the SMP and the 300mc. I just use the second hand on the SMP and the bezel on the 300mc.

    My daily driver is a Daytona at the moment, I'm just waiting for some a-hole to give me grief about it. My answer is clear: "I don't ..... about your Porsche / BMW / Audi and I expect you not to ..... about my Omega / Rolex"

    I have come to the same conclusion just as I have with the Speedy Pro. Both watches look good on anything.

    Go old school print picture of both and place them side by side.

    Just realized there are now 16 variations of this model - half of which are on leather.

    I've never been a fan of a fully gold watch, but I quite like some of the models with touches of yellow gold or sedna coupled with steel or titanium. But I don't like YG or sedna CLs which is what these combos have. The YG or S + Steel or Ti cases are available on leather, however. But I'd rather have a plain steel or titanium bracelet which would need to be bought separately...

    Just walked into a Omega retailer. Saw the seamaster 300MC with leather strap deployment. OMG the leather looks amazing. Kinda brownish/grey. Really brings out the watch!

    I know - that combo is fantastic. Should I re-buy the 300mc in the future, I'll definitely get the strap version. Just a pity that the price difference between strap and bracelet is only 200$.

    Trying my luck here. Ordered 2 18mm omega tang buckles only to realise it can't fit my strap for the 300MC. I squeezed in a 22mm strap for temporary use. (Stupid me, kept thinking about my Speedmaster while ordering).

    Original Omega strap at $189 is still acceptable (but it needs a deployment buckle). I can't bring myself to fork out $300 for the original deployment buckle. If I do that, it's gonna cost me $500++ excluding shipping.

    Trying to find a strap that look closest to the original. It's driving me nuts! Help!
