    There certainly is.

    Quoted from a review of the Trilogy :

    ‘’The only part of each watch that is obviously modern are the bracelets, which are all solidly constructed and fitted with.chunky, push-button clasps that feel a bit too large;’’

    Quoted from the same review :

    ’’The bracelet does, however, look much like the vintage original, save for the clasp, which is a thick and clearly modern construction. Though it bears the retro Omega logo, the clasp feels out of place.’’

    The wrong set of rims can easily destroy the aesthetic of a beautiful car.

    Okay, now you delivered serious arguments and convinced me. If a reviewer has this opinion it must be the truth. I will replace the bracelets of my Trilogies immediately. Can’t stand the mismatched clasps anymore … thanks for your help!

    Honestly said I don’t have an opinion one way or the other about the bracelet as the first thing I did on this LE watch was to remove it from the watch and place it in the red box with all the stickers attached. I have a couple of nice straps to use instead and will likely source a couple more as well. No reason though for any ruffled feathers. Either you like the OEM bracelet or you don’t. No big deal.

    I did the same for 3 weeks. I decided to give the OEM bracelet a shot and discovered that the RMLE doesn't look better on anything else. I do like switching to straps once in a while. It's a fun diversion from the full experience.

    In case someone in central Europe is still looking, the Hamburg OB has one Speedmaster LE and one Railmaster LE

    But none of these, of which I managed to get one...

    I have just noticed that the numbers on the rotating bezel are the 'wrong' way around! They count 'backwards'.

    Obviously, it's deliberate, but it's interesting.
