the ultimate diver,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seiko SBDX001 Prospex Marinemaster Automatic Watch (Watch)
The watch is beyond good. If you've had a Sumo (around 500 bucks) and you get an MM300 (around 2300 bucks) you can discover all at once what the point of expensive watches really is. Its right there on your wrist - very close to the back of your hand (with which you are quite familiar) - so glorious engineering and finishing can be genuinely appreciated. Its a trip. But enough has been said about this watch already. It is worth emphasizing that it is much smaller and more elegant than the Sumo - so don't be put off by how thick and chunky it is. It is also wonderfully comfortable and the bracelet is exceptionally well made. This is the sort of watch that makes it totally pointless to have any other watches.
The only point of the review is to say that I had no problems at all getting this through Amazon marketplace - 'trendor' was perfectly reliable. Rather than taking a big risk and getting one through ebay and being landed with an enormous tax and duty bill, I went through Amazon and got one with tax included. Stress free experience - well done trendor and Amazon marketplace.
This watch is SBDX001 - MM300
Amazon need to sort this out because it will put people off!

Thanks for the review.
Not sure why anyone would but one of these from Amazon at £1660 though when you can buy one from Japan for £1240. Even with import duty you'd be paying substantially less and if you're lucky enough to get it through customs without any charges then the savings are massive.
Great watch, however you get your hands on one.

great watch, i also got the sbdx011, both from japan, must say that the service was great, but the duty man hit me so hard, much better to buy here if you got a budget set and is willing to pay a bit more for peace of mind.
good choice sir and enjoy!
