Thread: What would your pick be...?

  1. #1

    What would your pick be...?

    As some of you might know, I am on hols with wife in Bangkok. I have been on good behavior on this trip, and the wife actually accompanied me with my watch window shopping. And I chances upon this shop that sells a couple of Seikos. Tried on a few and I am very tempted with one of these.

    Just want to hear from members here your thoughts:

    First, the Sumo LE.



    This wears slightly big on my wrist, but not ridiculous. Looks sharper than the older Sumo.

    MM300 (Thailand Edition)



    I really like the MM. Better looking, movement, but comes with a higher price tag. What is different about this compared with the regular MM - the hands. It looks like the hands from Monster series.

    Just curious, if you were in this situation, which would you pick and why? The MM is almost double of the Sumo.

    Thanks in advance.

    Knowing your collection......I would keep the money in the pocket. If forced to choose...the MM300.
    Sorry, just being honest


    Edit: Yes, yes, I know: I'm probably losing my enabler card...

    Thanks for the comments.

    C - with this irrational hobby, we sometimes need someone to knock some sense into our choices - well, at least this is true for me.....so, I do appreciate any opinions/ suggestions. I only know so much (or rather, very little).

    You have such a wonderful collection, that makes me think "GS" when you talk about Seiko divers...
