    I don't think it matters which geographical location you're in with new releases - they seem to "spread the love" and send some of each batch to different places...

    Nice. I was born in Melbourne in 1957 the same year the original was released.
    This would be a watch I could easily put on my wrist if all the stars aligned.
    Well done and wear it in good health when you receive it

    Don't forget that this is pretty much an exact reproduction of the original watch, except for the movement, so there were probably design issues that come into play with what they could do with respect to water resistance. Think of it as another aspect of the watch that is authentic.

    But it's a limited edition, and not just some minor variation on a current issue watch. It's going to hold it's value very well in the near term, and increase in the long term, probably more significantly than either of the cited Rolexes.

    That picture you posted, is that your watch? Did it arrive? It's pretty stunning. Thank God they exercised restraint on the dial text front.

    I totally agree with this. Not only is there no unnecessary text about the movement, but "Railmaster" is back in its rightful position on the dial. Nicely executed.

    You make very valid points.

    No; that's not my picture, sorry.

    I only put my deposit in this morning and I don't know when it's arriving but I'll be sure to keep everyone informed.
