Something is off with their site. The link shows $245 for the K model on bracelet (great price) but if you add it to your cart the price jumps to $299 (OK, but not outstanding, price)

On edit: must've been a glitch as the price is back to $299.

I've noticed that change as well since I posted this. I bought my Pepsi there at the time it listed them for $255.

$255 is a great price. Even at the listed price they undercut Creation Watches by $30.

At $245 I would've returned the one I just bought (which Murphy's Law dictated was delivered Monday just after I had to leave on a business trip) and purchased this one.

At $299, the $29 price difference isn't worth it.

New solar titanium divers spotted on WUS.

I also asked him to post a pic of the lume and he was kind enough to provide it. Looks like it's the same lume that's on the new tunas.

The 44mm is too big for me, but I can easily see myself falling for a 39mm one.

The MM300 is a great watch that everyone should own at least once. :thumbsup:

I liked those initially, but these pics of the actual watch look a little awkward. Maybe it's just the pics, but right now I'd rather have the current solar diver/chrono. And for me, the ideal size would be somewhere between their two offerings. I could probably wear either, but I think I'd always wish the 39 were a little bigger and the 44 a little smaller. :shrug: I do applaud the effort to offer both sizes though.

I really dislike that dial color. If they wanted to do something special but unexpected, why not white? I know we wouldn't be surprised by a dark blue version if they brought one out.

It would be an occasional sitting at the tiki bar drinking a rum punch while looking at the ocean watch. Or anytime I was in Miami.

Love the video and that LE looks great.

I would hope that the LE's are made a little tighter and not sloppy like the reg tirtle I've seen.

Apparently the dial of the new marine disaster 300 is supposed resemble how it looks when you look up at the sun while diving under water.

Yeah but in order to test that the Seiko designer looked at the sun a bit too much apparently.
