    That's encouraging. It seems like the second hand would tie in nicely with the numerals but I read some negatives about it in a review or two. Looks good to me. Same for the glossy look. I dislike when the light makes the watch look really flat in finish. In those photos it looks glossy which looks extremely good considering the vintage design. The glossy-ness keeps it from being too vintage looking and the vintage design keeps it from being too modern looking. It also makes it a better compliment to my PO2500 which comes across more muted save for the applied dial elements and hands.

    After much hemming and hawing, and really nailing down why I want another nice diver, I'm 85% sure the 300MC is my next purchase. Going by an AD or two today to try to see the black stainless version and also a black PO8500. That'll help sure things up in my mind.

    Have never thought a bit about the seconds hand.

    If there's any light at all in the room then it's glossy.

    For me it has been and continues to be a phenomenal timepiece that is perfect for all occasions.

    Hello my fellow Agent 007s!

    I'm gonna order the Omega Bond strap as well, looks really good with the 300MC.

    Instead of the Bond model, I wonder how the one with both sides in grey will look.

    Question for those with the Omega Bond NATO strap (031ZSZ002053 / 21-22mm), what spring bars are you using? From my experience with the Speedmaster and Omega 19-20mm NATO straps, Omega uses a longer spring bar than the one that came with the bracelet.

    Thanks.

    Not sure - my AD installed them on mine when I still had the MC.

    Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial Owner's Thread

    Went by the boutique and checked out the 300MC again today along with the PO8500. Also checked out a Rolex SubC date and no date.

    Down to deciding on whether to keep my PO2500 and add a SubC or to move my PO2500 for a PO8500 and add a 300MC.

    The 300MC as a total visual package is definitely beautiful and had the most character.

    PO8500 had the most presence and detail in the dial and the case finishing.

    SubCs were the most understated and the bezel, crown and bracelet action were a cut above the Omegas.

    At 32 years of age it's hard to think of myself as a "Rolex guy" though. What I love about Omega, other than their innovation and willingness to push the envelope, is that I feel like they make a true watch guy's watch--not just something flashy for the masses (where Rolex is a victim of it's success). The 300MC is as much a testament to that as anything. It's a watch I could see buying now at 32 years old and still wearing it proudly at double my age and beyond--just like my Speedy Pro (of course the same could be said for the Submariner too, it has stood the test of time after all, if I could just get past the stigma).

    Well since I am double your age I guess I can attest to that part.

    Not trying to nudge you away from the 300mc - but: the 'Rolex stigma' only exists in the heads of (some) WIS. I've been wearing Rolex and Omega watches for years. I'm 38 years old, work in an environment where most people wear Swatch and Tissot watches and never once has anyone even noticed or cared about the watch I'm wearing. Also, even outside of work, nobody has ever commented on any of my watches - in reality, this just very rarely happens. If you like a Sub - and I'd take both my 16610 or my Daytona over any other watch on the planet - I mean I love the 300mc and I'll own one again some day, but it's not a Sub and my Speedy Pro isn't a Daytona - by all means, go for it. Decide on what YOU want, and ignore the opinion of others. You'll be wearing the watch for yourself - nobody else will care about it. You'll likely never meet any of us here and most other people simply don't care about watches and they know absolutely nothing about them.

    Clearly it's a deeply personal choice. I am a fan of Rolex, tho I own none (yet). I do own 5 Omega's. Also no big deal. But if I had to lose ALL. If my watches tomorrow (Omega and other brands) I would keep the 300MC. But that's me. Like most of us you'll likely end up with a collection of the ones you like the most. The ones that speak to you.
