Got it off eBay from a seller in England for about $200.00. I got the one with the black band of course. The watch itself is actually a slight bit bigger than I thought it would be. The only thing I dont like about it is how the band tapers and is relatively small by the tim it reaches the buckle. I wish the band stayed wide the whole length like my 5.11 tactical series watch does. But overall, I'm very happy that I bought it.

An aside.... Anyone know why the 300M watch is eco-drive, but the 1000M watch iss an automatic? The 1000M would be just plain awesome if it was ecodrive instead of automatic. Easier to keep fully charged.

that the 300m one would be better if it were an automatic with sapphire crystal. I sold mine b/c I dislike quartz and I couldn't stand "Band China" on the clasp. YMMV.

Great value though.

Well I was just thinking that if the watch was automatic, then I'd have to buy a watch winder to keep it going. With and eco-drive, I just have to store it by the light and its fully charged. I have so many watches that any one watch doesn't get much wrist time. I have a seiko automatic, and its always stopping cause i wear it so little and I dont have a watch winder.

I wasn't saying that you can't own one. It is more convenient, but I just dislike quartz b/c everyone else has a watch that goes "tick tick tick", so I prefer mine which go "ticktickticktick".

Just a preference......
