    So, I took the plunge and ordered a MM300 clasp from a vendor on eBay, and I 'm very happy with it. Simple to fit, I just popped a spring bar at either end. Size-wise it is similar to the OEM clasp when the ratchet is all the way closed... maybe it is a bit tighter/smaller overall. The colour/finish is a perfect match to the OEM clasp in my eyes, which was a nice surprise. It is a little thicker than the OEM clasp, but any downsides are made up for with the ratchet adjustment which works as advertised. Adjustment is easy and it really makes a difference being able to adjust the watch during the day while wearing it. The only negative is that when you have the ratchet open a bit it is visible and a bit on the ugly-side. The bracelet doesn't look nice and seamless with it open. But to be honest, it is a pretty minor thing that I'm sure nobody else would even notice unless it was pointed out to them. Here are a heap of photos for those who are interested.

    Can you post a pic showing how it looks like with the ratchet halfway open? If it's not too much trouble

    No problems at all. Here are some pics showing the ratchet at different extensions (of course it looks pretty bad this big on my 6.5" wrist!)

    Of course you would never normally need the ratchet extended like that - you would size the bracelet with additional links.

    Thanks! I see what you mean by it doesn't look that great with the extension out. Guess it's more functional than anything.

    I think it’s not too noticeable if you only need to extend the ratchet by one or two increments. I was lucky enough that I was able to adjust the links in the bracelet to give a good tight fit with the ratchet fully closed. When my wrist swells I open the ratchet a small amount so that it is comfortable again.

    So my SBDC061 arrived today. I have to say that I was really impressed. I don't think I have been this visually blown away by a watch since I received my Planet Ocean a few years ago. Seiko really did a lot of things right with this watch.

    Yeah, agreed. And I still look at it at times and fall in love with it all over again. Especially when I don't wear it for a day.

    I have been pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of mine so far. After the first day, it is running -1.7 sec per day. I hope it continues to perform that well.
