Yes I know its expensive in the Nordic countries. In Sweden a Planet Ocea coast 33 000 swedish crowns = 4738 USD and a MM300 with taxes 26 000 swedish crowns with taxes=3733 USD.

I own a Sumo and I don't own a MM300 so obviously I preferred the Sumo! But the only reason for that is price. Not that I think the 300 is overpriced, I'm just not at that stage of life where I can see myself paying that much for a watch.
I prefer the Sumo.
Buy it first so that you will realize that you need the MM300.
Upon handling the Sumo, you will appreciate its finish and build quality so much so that the prospect of owning a MM300, with its devoted following, will become ever so enticing.
Seiko divers are like crack. You start out with a monster or 007 and next thing you know you are selling your couch on Craigslist so that you can get a taste of a spring drive or marine master.
Get the Sumo. You won't regret it.
Logic says Sumo, prestige says MM300. Life's too short to keep second guessing yourself, especially after making a decision. If you have the means, get both now because you'll probably do so later anyway.
