Heard Seiko discontinued the current Marinemaster 300

I just got my favorite watch dealer in Singapore this beautiful MM300 and heard he mentioned that Seiko already discontinued the above mentioned.

Think most probably Seiko will come out with a more expensive MM300 with a 8L35 upgraded movement (current power reserve is 50hrs maybe like their 6R35 extend it to 70hrs?).

What do you guys think? And do you guys love the MM300? Pls share your thoughts!

A 8L35 variant would be cool!

I'm a big fan of the Marinemaster in generell. I hope they will upgrade the bracelet and the clasp too. Idk maybe it's just personal taste but I prefer the bracelet of the MM200 the SPB187 over the one of the MM300. I think a slightly higher price would be okay if the movement is upgraded and regulated. But its always kind of scary when they upgrade such iconic watches. Hope it'll work out great.

Yup, I agreed with your points on the bracelet and also they should regulate the movement since nowadays Seiko is selling the Marinemaster at such a high price whereby it's similar to many Swiss watches (Swiss watches usually are regulated ). So I see no reason why Seiko should again not regulate their higher ends watches that are completing against mid range Swiss watches at similar price point.

I totally agree on that. I think in Europe the MM300 is about 3200€. That is a lot of money to ask for a non regulated watch. 

Seiko makes great watches but they sadly don't hold up the high standard in keeping time. Especially the 6R35 in the MM200. I love my Spb187 because of the way it looks but the movement sometimes drive me nuts. I don't know whether the MM300 has the same problems but the tolerances on the Seiko website are huge for that price point. So hopefully they'll regulate the "new" MM300

My MM300 is +8sec daily very consistent. Its a shame Seiko don't regulate it otherwise its surely easily within COSC standard.
