    But the EXPII is not the 300 MC. There is nothing in the Rolex lineup that even comes close.

    Plus, I'm tired of the "Rolex silliness."

    No offense to those that keep the 300 MC with the polished center links, I like the 300 MC better with brushed center links. I'm not against PCL, (I have another watch that has them). but to my eyes this "diver" looks better toned down with the all brushed look.

    I agree - it's a personal decision to get them brushed. I prefer the center links brushed, but I absolutely don't mind if other keep them polished.

    Not sure I agree with you on this one. I love my Submariner (and my Datejust, for that matter, although it's not the same category, obviously) just as much as the 300mc. Both are great time pieces.

    I think I was one of the first to post the watch with the brushed links. I never had the watch with the polished links other than seeing the pictures. To me, the brushed links just seem like a better match for this steel watch but I certainly respect those who enjoy the polished look. StephenName:  IMG_3869.jpg

    I agree that it's a personal decision with no wrong answers. It's a great looking watch with our without the polished center links.

    My historian side comes out : Bmickdewey did it a few months ahead of you FWIW.

    Oddly I can't say I prefer PCL because still have not see a brushed one in the wild and likely never will. I considered getting a spare bracelet and having it brushed but the cost was prohibitive. I do like my AT bracelet which is brushed.

    What would be interesting is would resell be helped or hurt? Would new owner want original or not? The first 6 months I own a watch is when I am most likely to sell so definitely will wait til that time period passes.

    I am going for now with the motto: "You can always brush, but you can't really go back so be sure.". Ha I had another analogy but figured I better not use.

    Still have managed to not get a Rolex. What do you see as the silliness? Probably should not ask as will derail the thread.

    I doubt it'll hurt resale-value. We've got to be realistic here: the watch lost 30% of its value the first time you put a scratch in it. I'm guessing those will sell only slightly over Speedy Pro territory. You can get a used hesalite Speedy Pro for about 2500-3000 Swiss Francs (they retail for 4700 CHF), but that's a Speedy Pro. Prices for Seamaster Professional watches are considerably lower. Because the 300mc has a 4-year warranty, prices should remain fairly stable for that period, but I don't expect to get more than 4000 out of it if I'd have to sell it now (bought it unworn for 4400...), and probably around 3500 in half a year. The bracelet won't make a difference. Especially considering that some ADs already sell them with brushed CLs as customer demand for the modification is high.

    But you can restore the polished links, case, lugs.
