I was offered one at a great price by the dealer Jeff hooked me up with. I passed because I don’t think it looks as good as the regular versions. The hands look bad.

Something about a green watch I just don't like, and this one is no exception. Do like my blue one though.

Every teal dial black bezel watch they make is ugly. The MM300 is godawful.

Is this one teal, or the slightly less ugly green?

The hands and hour marker color are a different shade of yellow.
WTF Seiko

I like seiko, but this is a hard pass.
They always add one extra design features that kills the watch.
It’s almost like they played watchmaking bingo on this one.

All they needed to do was replicate the green Sarb dial, gold markers and handset.......this combination does nothing for me.

That’s exactly what I was hoping for when I contacted the dealer. Thankfully I saw real photos before I sent any money.

I don’t care much for Seiko's approach lately. This 8 million versions of each diver for the sake of doing it is weird.

The 051 and 053 are killer. This one is not.

I am happy I went with the 051. This is not the green I was looking for.

I'm looking for a good dealer (not for this watch, but for future acquisitions), if you're willing to share info. :cheers:
