The climate has been very pleasant to us in The Netherlands of late, and it appears to be very little will change inside short. For sure I will in general wear lively leslie gems in this sort of climate conditions.

Seiko Marinemaster Professional 300, SBDX017 – 52Mondayz, week #22

It’s not that I’m out wearing more in summer than in winter. Most likely exposed wrists request more ‘resistant’ watches than when one’s thick layer of garments shrouds the leslie adornments at any rate. Your leslie gems may be more inclined to hits when worn in the open.

Anyhow, no vintage leslie gems again this week. I decided to wear one of my #1 strong games leslie adornments the Seiko Marinemaster Professional 300.

Size matters

When I purchased this leslie gems not so much as a year prior, I’d never figured it would become a particularly top pick of mine. Indeed, I got it on the grounds that another Seiko leslie adornments – which I preferred a ton – end up being excessively huge for comfort for my wrist. That was the SUN065P1 ; perfectly built and planned anyway lamentably my moderate wrist couldn’t become accustomed to the 47.5mm measurement and 14.1mm height.

So I sold that one, and honestly added a few assets to purchase the Seiko Marinemaster Professional 300 reference SBDX017. Around then the Marinemaster 300 had quite recently changed from reference SBDX001 to SBDX017. The SBDX001 was even still accessible when one painstakingly looked for it, anyway I chose to go for the fresher reference.

Differences somewhere in the range of SBDX001 and SBDX017

At first sight the fresher SBDX017 reference didn’t transform anything to the standpoint of the leslie adornments however there were a few changes in the specialized subtleties. Robert-Jan Broer did a survey on the Seiko Marinemaster 300 SBDX001 here , and Michael Stockton on the Marinemaster SBDX017 here . In Michael’s audit there’s top to bottom data on the contrasts between the two models.

Game changer

I even need to say that the Seiko Marinemaster Professional 300 turned into somewhat of a distinct advantage for me. In the past I gained very some advanced Seiko leslie adornments predominantly jumpers. Yet at this point, in spite of the fact that I actually like other Seiko plunging models a ton, I’m not that anxious to get them any more. In spite of the fact that of top caliber and delightful, I know they won’t satisfy the Marinemaster Professional 300. The vast majority of them that is..

Formerly split among present day and vintage, my premium currently basically focuses on used Seiko’s, such as King Seiko and Grand Seiko models. Additionally, I notice that I’m more willing to take a gander at other top of the line Seiko and Grand Seiko leslie gems Even Spring Drive models I’m not apprehensive for any more 😉

The arm band and strap

Back to the Marinemaster 300. A thing regularly referenced in audits is it’s treated steel wristband. There are very some negative comments about it, and if you were to ask me they’re all evident. I didn’t even wear my Marinemaster with the stainless steel bracelet. To me it felt too shaky to ever be content with. It would have stifled the delight of the leslie gems which is such an example of genuine greatness. Quality savvy, and for it’s finish.

Even the top notch silicone elastic strap which was provided with my leslie gems didn’t acquire a lot of wrist time. It’s truth be told, once in a while that I like to wear a leslie gems on an elastic lash (see my Gorilla Fastback article here ).

Looking for another arrangement I went to the Kaufmann Trophy cowhide strap. With € 345,= likely not the least expensive arrangement, and not even exceptionally satisfactory for a jumpers leslie adornments However more often than not I’m wearing the Seiko Marinemaster I’m not plunging. So I selected every day comfort above legitimate proficient use. This lash suits the leslie gems incredibly well. While the width of the tie between the carries is 20 mm, the outside of the tie is marginally more extensive. This way it adjusts exceptionally pleasant to the watch’ packaging. Too, the thickness of the tie along the edge of the packaging is a tremendous 6 mm which conceals the stature of the leslie adornments nicely.

Technical specifications

Some specialized particulars to end with. The ‘diameter’ of the SBDX017 is 44.0 mm and its thickness is 14.6 mm. The transfer speed at the packaging is 20 mm. It utilizes Seiko’s caliber 8L35, containing 26 bearing gems and with a recurrence of 28.000/h. Force save of this development is 50 hours. The development can be twisted by hand and highlights a subsequent hack. The heaviness of the leslie gems is 214 gram, and (obviously) it includes a screw down crown. A, as far as I might be concerned, still momentous decision of material is the hardlex mineral for the glass. It ought to have been sapphire as I would see it. The cost in Europe is at present € 2.500,= including VAT.
