for $1700.00usd, when I have already a $1200.00usd Omega Bond quartz 300m??? As I was torturing myself over whether to pull the trigger on BuyNow for a minty used MM, I realized that my Bond quartz is a 300m diver. Was my mind ignoring this non Japanese lovely watch? Did I somehow think it was not on par with the MMaster??? weird how the mind works. So should I or not..pull the trigger?

I have kept quite about the MM for a long time now but for the life of me I cannot understand the appeal of this watch!
They are not to my liking at all in the least bit and to be quite honest......... I think they are not good looking in the least!
IF I had the money that they command I'd be looking for nice used Vintage Rolex.

It wasn't long ago that you took the jump to more expensive watches; this is just the next step.

Get that Rolex you covet

MM of course.

Well to me, the MM is nicer than a Rollie. IMHO.
More unique, Seiko's best diver IMO.

I do like some Rolex, I'm not saying they aren't better or worse.

But if you still long for that grail Rolex GMT 1675, I say go for that.
yes, its 4k, so consolidate, you will be happy, happy, happy!

But also for $1700, you can rent that sucker, and if you don't like it, flip it.
You can sell for the same or at little loss if any.

I know Rolex will be your one and only. Make it happen Thian. You can do it! hehe.

lingers, but in truth, the MM visually strikes me better. The Tuna at 47mm is just too wide. Not sure of the thickness and weight of the MM, since the Bond, a 300m diver, is soooooocomfortable and thin in comparison!
