Incoming! New MM300 (SLA021)

Iíve been thinking about getting a Marinemaster for a few years now. The picture are always gorgeous but I was concerned that it wouldnít fit my small wrists and never found it anywhere to try.

Nevertheless I found the updated model (with ceramic bezel and sapphire crystal) for a good price (lightly used) and decided to take the plunge.

First impression is that it is not too big and is as beautiful as everyone says. I was worried about bracelet fit but after removing an extra link (technically part of the bracelet) I got a good fit and it feels balanced. The fine-adjustment while easily triggered is handy.

I am sure the watch is perfectly fine on your wrist. We all know that close up photos give a screwed perspective.

Congrats !

The other MM300 thread made me realize that I put the wrong model number. SLA019 is the green limited edition, I have the black which is SLA021.

Anyways less talk more photos

Congratulations. I have owned the green, black and now blue dial versions of the MM. I think it is a great watch. The more I wear mine the more I want to wear it.

I also wanted to add that one of the reasons I never bought one before was concern about accuracy. I had heard it could be as bad as 10 or 15 seconds fast and there was no way to predict what you would get.

I moved on this one because the seller claimed they were getting +3 with it. After 24 hours Iím at +1 so very satisfied so far. One advantage of buying used.
