If you follow me on Instagram (@vintagediver), you’ll probably have seen that I recently took a vacation to Puerto Rico (yes, it was freaking awesome). You may also have noticed that I’m a “vintage guy” when it comes to watches. Normally I tend to wear a different vintage watch each day, although I have been know to wear the same watch for a few days in a row (crazy, I know), especially if it’s my ’79 Tudor blue snowflake.
Now, I know lots of you guys will pack several watches for a trip but I don’t like the idea of traveling with a bunch of my watches, having to worry about taking them on a plane or leaving them in the hotel. So, I will usually pick one watch for my trip and just have to suffer through the withdrawals. Since this vacation was to a hot and humid tropical locale and I knew I’d be spending lots of quality time in the pool and ocean, I chose to go with a modern watch with a screw-down crown: The Seiko SBDX001 Marine Master 300m, or MM300 as it’s commonly known. The MM300 comes on a great bracelet, but I chose to wear it on an Isofrane strap for comfort in the muggy weather, plus it just looks killer on that strap.
