Funny you should ask because I just checked my SM300 an couple of weeks ago. It runs about +8 at the moment so it's a bit out but it's due for a service so that may improve. It doesn't really bother me since I change my watch every day and don't use a winder so I always have to set it before wearing it anyway.
Not sure if anyone's mentioned it yet but you could always look out for a Watchco SM300 instead of vintage. Essentially a vintage movement inside a new (not NOS but genuine Omega) case / dial.

They cost me about $12 Aussie (approx $8 US)

He said that the majority of issues he sees are caused by the collar and after he cut a new collar (luckily I had some cloth left) the jacket moved towards the front of my body resolving the vent issue, shoulders and the...

Unfortunately I voted yes. I used to do a quiz night with workmates after work once a week. We always won and the prize was free drink vouchers. After a couple of months we'd accrued a ridiculous amount of tokens and somebody had the bright idea of spending them all on PINTS of scotch. I woke up fully dressed in my suit except minus one shoe. Couldn't find it anywhere until I went to the toilet and found it sitting submerged in the bowl. I didn't feel very well...
