Re: SBDX017 Bracelet End Link Woes...

I've seen other pictures of terrible end link fit on the MM300 and mentioned it a few times on here. Most claim it's due to shadows - you know the real deal though. Try new spring bars for sure. My Omega Speedmaster had terrible (but a thousand times better than this) end link fit with the stock ba...

I suppose rubber or a NATO on the MM300 isn't too out of character........

SBDX017 Bracelet End Link Woes...

So, I just got around to getting the bracelet sized and when I mounted it to the watch I noticed this terrible fit to the case... anyone else experiencing this?? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170227/34dd5e8b8a322428521980d2acbacbd1.jpg Conversely has anyone used one of Strapcode's Super Oyster ...

I've got the spring drive GMT. I could probably collect exclusively Seikos and not be mad.

Okay, so what if I complicate this a bit more and fold in a third option of the Seiko MM300. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170217/eba835aa5a772b00d64cfedd8a57784f.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk This.

Re: Need some help deciding...

Leaning towards the MM300, I owned the earlier version briefly but I love the Diashield and updated lewm on the 017. Added benefit I'm currently borrowing one from my buddy and he'd sell it to me. Insta-gratification. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170217/41c9771bdbb027e3602b18fec6aaa831.jpg Sen...

Terry is right. He likes to blow you before you get the hooker. He does this so you'll get your money's worth. This is the spirit of DWC, it's all about giving back.
Now it sounds like a party.
