    Great shot. I'm definitely a bracelet guy, but I thought the white dial on black rubber looked stunning too.

    It doesn't feel too heavy on my wrist. I don't get the complaints over this watch's weight. It is a friggin' stainless steel DIVER WATCH that's constructed to resist the pressure of 1000 ft of water! Buy a JLC Ultra Thin if you want light weight. HOWEVER, the steel bracelet on such a sports watch typically accounts for about 40% of the watch-on-wrist overall weight. So on a fabric strap, you can reduce the overall weight by 1/3.

    Re: Seamaster 300 White Dial

    I always take watches on bracelet if possible, but this type of bracelet on is so bloody ugly and tacky in my eyes. It ruins this watch for me which I otherwise like very much. If they only had it on a speedmaster style bracelet ... I never understood why they changed from speedmaster type bracelet to this in the first place.

    It would also be business-wise better to develop a collection of a few bracelet types, characteristic for the brand and make them available to their lineup of watches. While this would be more economical it would also be easyer to comprehend for the consumer, look classier and not all over the place. Instead they now practically have a unique design for every line of models. I mean - it shouldn't be that difficult: the have watches with lyre and straight lugs. Do a couple of designs based on the speedmaster bracelet tweaked to look good on one and the other type of lugs and a bead-of-riceier type of bracelet and have the widths and end lugs ready for consumer to choose. And never ever resurrect this atrocity.
    End rant.

    Totally agree 100% with above. Love the watch, hate the bracelet. Would like to know if any other 20MM Omega bracelets from other models fit the 2018/2019 Seamaster 300????????????? I inquired to Omega directly, and got no response.

    Anyone out there have older Seamaster/Planet Ocean with 20MM bracelet, and newest Seamaster 2018/19 model and can do a bracelet swap and confirm compatibility?

    Do the waves on the white dial give the watch a different look at various angles like they provide on the black and blue dial

    Shouldn't these be delivered to stores soon? Cannot wait to see it in the metal.

    I like it, but I'd like it a lot better if the Seamaster wordmark and the tip of the second hand were done in black (or blue).
