    Watcho Seamaster 300 wrist shot request!

    there are lots of watchco 300 pics on this board, but hardly any on wrists. anyone care to post some shots?

    Thanks!

    Also - what's the power reserve of the vintage Omega movement in these watchcos?

    Re: Watcho Seamaster 300 wrist shot request!

    Here's mine:



    This is from the operating instructions that came with it:

    "Winding the crown roughly 40 times, will close the mainspring to its full capacity, thus allowing it to firstly, run most accurately, (ie. the parts will be vibrating at their optimum rate, giving the most accurate time possible. .. eg. 4 mins + or – a week is acceptable ), and secondly, it will run for 40 hours approx, by itself.. ( no wearing needed to keep it going )

    IF, you wear the watch every day, the rotor will keep the watch wound, through every day moving of the hand. Eg. 1 x turn of the crown is equivalent to 10 revolutions of the automatic rotor, so it is clearly logical that to fully power an automatic watch, WINDING THROUGH THE CROWN is A MUST.

    I suggest , that if you do not wear the watch every day, wind it 24 times, every day !
    This will keep it at its full “power reserve” and you don’t have to worry about re-setting the time and date"

    Looks great guys!

    BTW, I saw an original 300 for sale @ TZSC. Looked very nice, but I just really don't know how much the vintage 300 is going for these days.

    Awesome! Stunning watches guys. Keep the pics coming if you have more.

    Can I ask what your wrist sizes are? Am considering taking the plunge. I have a 7" wrist and am wondering if this watch will look too big on me?

    It was just a experiment, I had the SM300 on a Hirsh Carbon for years...



    Thought it was time for something different, and I had the Speedy bracelet laying in my watchbox, since I wear my ''beater'' Speedy on a leather strap..



    Thought it would be a interesting experiment if I put the two together...



    I like the result..

    Are these readily available or are they kind of hard to come by? I've admired this one for a while as well and I've got to say the 300 is a lot more attractive to me than the more modern incarnations.
