    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...

    It's interesting that all the watches in your pic, Daniel Craig has worn as James Bond.

    I suppose after Spectre that will be the case. Tho my SMP is an oooold Quartz version. I had the electric blue version of that but sold it to help fund the PO8500.

    Reasonably sure my next one will be a vintage 300. Unless I end up getting seduced by a master coaxial PO. Assuming those are coming out soon. I also am starting to gravitate a little to the Speedmaster. JHC, I might be addicted to these things.

    I've never understood buying a watch based on resale value but I'm not a flipper. If I can't see keeping the watch long term then I don't buy it in the first place, and if I happen to dislike it after a while then I'll take the hit. I always buy used anyway so the hit is usually marginal if not completely non-existent anyway.

    May I ask why specifically?

    I bought it for about $4K. Not the cheapest but considering it not so commonly seen.
    The original owner did not get much of a deal there. I figured $4200 net was about all I would see. So you got an excellent deal.

    Better quit hanging around with members here. After too many flips, one tends to at least factor in the possibility.

    I never buy a watch with the aim of reselling it - but I know myself. I flipped a bunch of watches to raise the funds necessary to buy a Daytona. I don't regret doing it as the D is one of the most perfect watches money can buy and I've worn it almost every day since I bought it. But I didn't sell watches for it that I disliked - I loved all of them. I'll probably re-buy one or the other of I can get a good deal. I'll definitely get another 300mc, but I'll probably have to wait a while for the prices to come down a bit.

    I'm not really a fan of the speedmasters but regardless, you have a mighty impressive collection.

    I just paid for my NOS 1960's Watchco Seamaster 300 last night, with black date wheel and both the 1171 and mesh bracelet.

    I just can't get into the new version as much, and I prefer my blue titanium PO 8500 LM a bit more. I'm not wild about the straight lugs and polished center links on a tool diver watch, or the lack of inverted triangle at the 12 o'clock bezel dot and lack of date wheel. It's a great watch, but lacks the features I want, while I still get the gorgeous LM bezel on my Ti PO 8500.

    For those reasons I just don't believe that the new SM300 MC would be able to displace the Ti PO (or my Rolex BLNR). The new SM300 MC feels like a gussied up homage to the original, and I'd rather just have the original.

    I used to buy watch with the "belief" that I'm gonna keep the watch for long and not gonna flip it. That's what I always tell myself many moons ago and still "believing" it now........LOL
