Thanks Jeff. I'm a little disappointed that the Radiomir is only in the 47mm size, a 42 would be perfect. The 42mm model they've released is a Luminor, which is not really my cup of tea...

That bezel is really nice compared to the original one, but I would prefer 12 instead of 0.

I don't really get this bezel either. I'd prefer to see traditional diving indices.

I am a massive fan of this as well. Can't square the price increase though. There seems to be an extra £2k on the RRP for the lollipop and changed bezel (as well as the Bond element) from the standard 300.

Does seem a lot, think there's a presentation box etc. but not much else.

Love the lollipop hand but not a lot else worth having over the normal version

^^^^ the normal version of the Seamaster 300 master co-ax has an rrp of £4,170 - but you could probably get one with up to say 20% ish off. The Spectre version rrp is £4,785.

Dealers seem to think these are worth a whole lot more than that already.
