    After a couple of days ownership, some more musings.....

    - light and comfy, case more in common with the SBDC 51/53/55/57
    - keeping good time at +7....faster is always better in my book.
    - have tried many strap combos, including natos, but keep coming back to the bracelet....looking forward to getting my uncle Seiko waffle, as I think will be THE combo for this watch.


    I really like this watch, the sapphire is superb, the bracelet is very good, and the bezel action is buttery smooth.....

    I just hate that the MM300 comparison is still being thrown out there!

    To be clear:
    - this is not a MM300 replacement.
    - this has little in common with the MM300
    - in fact, more in common with its SBDC cousins than any other watch.

    Shot a few sidebysides with my PADI SBDC055, MM300 and the 063....outside the 4 o’clock crown, round (but not the same ) indicies, you can clearly see the 051/053/055/057 DNA more than the MM300....

    You'll have a hard time convincing people that they aren't similar to the MM300 when you post side-by-side pictures clearly showing how similar they are :D

    I'm not sure what the issue is - they are inspired by the 6159, which was itself the clear inspiration for the MM300. The similarities in the cases, bezels and dials are obvious. Of course they are similar to the 051/053 because they are built to the same modern specs, but the 'DNA' is clearly shared with the Marinemaster. It's okay, you don't have to be mad about it!

    I will gently weigh in and say i can see both sides of the marine master argument.

    I don't need it to be a MM but i also wouldn't be bothered if someone said my incoming 63 looked like one.

    I am pretty easy going about it, but i am not steeped in seiko as of yet.

    I am not fond of nicknames at all, but I have to admit "mm200", whatever misleading it can be, describes pretty well the 61 (especially on these last nice photos) !
    Modern and cheaper reinterpretation of the 6159, from which the mm300 is also directly derived.

    I agree... MM200, baby MM... either are fine with me. Heck, the new green "real" MM doesn't even say Marine Master anymore... So is it really?

    To my eye, the sidebyside shows just how dissimilar the 063 and MM300 are......but anyways

    I surrender....focus on the watch!

    Not with standing my OCDness about things, the 063 is a great watch and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a well packaged midish tier Seiko!

    Normal programming may now resume....

    Doubt he's "mad about it"; but he's 100% correct. They couldn't be more different when actually worn right after the other.

    But of course you can call it whatever you want. However, potential buyers should not be led to believe this replicates the actual ownership experience of the SBDX001/017. Pictures on the internet do not tell even a tenth of the whole story.
