It’s the first watch with invisible timekeeping.
Much more legible in this photo from Dickson Ng on Facebook.

It’s a Seiko Blackfrog.

I remember hearing about these when they were first announced, but nothing since. Anyone know if they are available yet?

Someone on WUS said it's not available yet, and I haven't seen a release date. Here's another pic though. I like it.

I was assuming the whole bezel is lumed? I can't imagine them putting out a MM300 with no lume. At least I hope not.

I fell for the MM200 yesterday. Tried Dave's on at lunch and now I need one. Way nicer in person than what I thought from pics and I wasn't even put off by the 44mm size.

the mm200 is a badass watch. it takes a nice dump comfort wise on the mm300 for me. but i still kind of want another mm300 :scratch: :banghead:

so it looks like the 023 has lume on the dial. i guess this one might also

I've read somewhere that the new MM300 are even thicker than the original 001/017

I’m glad they didn’t fully lume the bezel on the 023 (and assumedly this new blue one). I find a fully lumed bezel actually makes it more difficult to orientate the dial at a quick glance in full darkness.

I love my Ares D1, but it’s also my first watch with a fully lumed bezel and when I wake up in the middle of the night and check it, it takes a second or two longer for me to tell the time when compared to a watch with a simple single lume pip :shrug:.

That blue MM300 is horrible looking. Looks like a mod watch.

I tend to agree. I think just having the bezel numbers lumed and leave the minute ticks white. It’s really bright and I love that.

I’m a blue watch fan, but the more I see of these new MM300’s, the more I realize the SBDX001 was the pinnacle of the design. So glad I still have mine.

The MM200 is a better continuation of the Marinemaster than the new MM300s, IMO.

I'd agree since I like the older 001/017 models better. However, movement wise the 6r15 is the weak link imo.
