    When i brought my 90s Seamaster in for revision I tried on the 300mc and immediately had to have it. What a nice watch and what a fascinating movement. The bracelet is a little on the shiny side. So I might experiment with others soon.

    Here are two pics:

    It wears big at my 6.5 inch wrist though, even after sizing the bracelet to minimum it's still little bit loose.

    Anybody with a 300MC also own a Planet Ocean?

    Curious if they feel redundant in your collection, particular if you have a black bezeled Planet Ocean.

    Obviously there are a lot of differences but also a lot of similarities. I'm considering adding a Black Bay alongside my Planet Ocean, or I could flip my Planet Ocean and skip the Tudor to get the 300MC. I love my Planet Ocean though and tend to lean heavily towards adding a Black Bay, but I am toying with the idea of a 300MC.

    I have 2 Planet Oceans and the 300MC.



    The 2500 was first - many moons ago. The 8500 was more recent but before I bought it I considered the 300MC.

    Honestly I was wrapped around the axle about whether or not the 300MC was too similar to the 2500. My conclusion: while they're both black dialed/bezeled dive watches that's where their similarities end. The reality is they're VERY different.

    At the end of the day my only regret is not picking up the 300MC sooner. The POs still get plenty of wrist time. But the 300MC is a special timepiece in its own right.

    I really like the Black Bay but for me it's got nothing on the 300MC.

    Curious what others think...

    Currently own 300MC have owned PO8500. I would consider them too similar. I would end up wearing the favorite and the other would stay in the box. IMO also if you have a PO2500 I can not see the reason to have a Black Bay. Maybe a Pelagos or Ranger for difference.
    I forget which PO2500 you ended up with but if it has orange bezel then I could see some logic in the other possibilities.
    Just my opinion.

    I have owned Tudor watches before and frankly, the 300mc is in a completely different class (also reflected in price and re-sale value). Nothing against the Black Bay at all - I really like it - but the 300mc is one of the most advanced and versatile watches money can buy.

    well said except not sure on the re-sale value being better % wise.

    I have the Planet Ocean for versatility though, and I'm not much of a "movement guy" in terms of it being a selling factor. I like watches with personality. I see the similarities of the PO 2201.50 and 300MC in the dial markings/hands, but actually prefer the PO indexes and hands over the 300MC (I also prefer the PO bracelet except for the non-adjustable clasp). I do like the case shape and liquidmetal tech of the 300MC though. That's where it wins for me. I do feel I'd wear my favorite of the two and the other would collect dust.

    Pelagos and Ranger are not considerations. Great watches for sure but not my cup of tea honestly.

    The Black Bay's red bezel and gilt dial/hands would add diversity to my collection and it's a watch I truly love and want to stare at--even if the build and tech aren't on par with the 300MC.

    The Tudor is still my lead horse but I will think hard on the 300MC before pulling the trigger. This thread continually reaffirms that it has to be in the running.
