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.
