Have you always wanted a Seiko Marine Master 300 but just can’t afford or justify the price? Well, like any iconic and popular watch, there is a homage out there waiting for you. The Aquatico Poseidon is an homage to the MM300 and at the discounted price of $250, may just be the one for you, depending on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a watch that is as close to the Seiko as you can get, this is definitely not it. If you want something that has the look but is not identical and you are okay with sacrificing quality, this could be an option.
If you are not familiar with Aquatico, they are a factory brand, or as some call a mushroom brand. What does that mean exactly? Well, unlike a microbrand, which doesn’t have a true definition, watch nuts have labeled it as a small brand, that has only a few employees, sometimes just one person, and makes limited production, usually 3-500 per production run. There’s more to it, but that’s the basics. Factory brands, on the other hand, are brands that portray themselves as microbrands but are owned by the same factories making some of your favorite microbrands. Honestly, it’s a little convoluted and possibly shady, but that that’s the watch world and that is China.
