    I'm not an expert on these Seamaster 300's, but it looks to me that there were a lot of replaced parts on this particular watch. The parts look to be correct to the watch, but new. To get to the $2,000 level, it needs to be all original.

    The movement seems to be a total franken job. Note the differing colors of the parts in this photo from the listing:

    Again, that's very common with these watches due to the relatively high value of the 300 cases vs. the lesser grade Seamasters that these cal. 552 Seamasters usually came from.

    Price was probably fair given the hodgepodge of new and used parts. I think I'd rather pay a bit more and get a Watchco Seamaster 300 with everything new except the movement.

    Hope this helps,
