    Well, I decided to make a franken homage.

    Kept the merkur as it's the superior build and most accurate homage, but sourced end links from HIMQ as they sit better and turn down better than the merkur. Got an engraved HIMQ insert and spent 3 hours modifying the bezel to accept it.

    What is the best place to buy Merkur mm? Does it remain the best Marine master clone now?

    I don't think they are available new anymore. Your best bet would be to look out for a used one from Merkur or Ouroboros as they seem to be the same but with different engravings and dial markings.

    Search for PROXIMA.

    All their models have NH35. I think 9015 in Merkur was a big plus.

    Actually found one: https://www.proximawatches.com/DIVER...product_id=287. But "0 Product(s) Sold".

    I was actually thinking about selling mine, if you're in the US. PM me and we can discuss it if you're interested.

    How does the finish on these things really compare to the Seiko? Folks seem awestruck by the mm300 because of the polishing I guess. In pictures, I can see no difference between the two.

    You can certainly tell the difference, side by side. That said for what you pay, the Merkur is stellar.

    I'd think that if they gotta be side by side to see the difference, that's pretty good.
