    Thats amazing to hear Carl. Does that mean that you had let go of your superb collection? Not seen that Sedna FOIS in a long while.

It is truly the watch for me that fits "If I could have only one watch.....".

    I love the simplicity of the RMLE. On the other hand the dive bezel makes the 300 just a little more sporty, which along with the better WR was the deciding factor BECAUSE it is my only watch. It was a tough decision indeed

    That was my deciding factor when I picked up the 300. I’m so happy to hear you still feel you made a good decision with that purchase

    I’ve removed my name from the list. I tried one on again many weeks back in a grey dealer and although a beauty, it didn’t give me the heart flutter that I was expecting.

    Since then I’ve finally “got” what the Speedmaster Pro is all about. Currently seeking the best deal on a brand new hesalite and steel case back version. Literally cannot wait to get it.

    A Sub is in my future, but it will be a 14060. I tried one last week and the smaller look and slender lugs really hit the spot.

    I think that will make the perfect 2 watch collection.

    Funny, at first I didn't like the narrow bezel. But, after I saw it a few times, and also realizing it is true to the original, I gained a lot more respect. And being so true to the original. No detail missed on that one!

    Hi Dan,

    No, I still have all of my collection. But I have 3 that are most likely going to be sold. Unfortunately, the Sedna FOIS is one of them. It is one of the most beautiful gold watches I have seen, and that is why I bought it. But it taught me (hopefully) not to buy a watch simply because it is beautiful. It gets little wrist time. Of course, because gold demands a much higher price when buying new, it means that one also loses a lot more when selling. If you saw the MSRP and the prices they go for pre-owned, it is quite shocking really. Anyway, no good brooding about it. I have, many times, sold watches at a loss only to replace them with less expensive ones that, in the end, give me greater pleasure.

    At this stage, in both my life and my collection, I have reached the point where, thankfully, I really have very little interest in acquiring more watches. I still love looking, though, and researching new ones. Anything I get at this stage, will have to be after I sell another. Not a bad thing at all, I am very fortunate to have a marvelous collection that satisfies me so. And it is also great fun to participate in threads such as this one with you guys!

    The Speedy Pro seems like a great idea for you. Often times, I wish that I still owned the model with the plexiglass crystal. Looking forward to hearing how you make out with that one! It took me years to "get" what the Speedy Pro is all about, and when I did I could not wait to get one either.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    That would indeed be a classic and classy two-watch collection, Dan.
    I had the Speedy Pro a few years ago. It wore a bit big on my small wrist and I realized that I had bought it more for the history than looks. But I had been wearing a chrono (MK40) for 20 years and was really looking for something with a cleaner dial. So my Speedy left quickly. It is however a great piece and I like seeing it on other people‘s wrists. Good luck with your hunt, it shouldn‘t be too difficult.

    I also prefer the look of the 14060 over the chunky six-digit models. Problem is that they won‘t get any cheaper. Maybe you should hunt for that first. The Speedy will always be available at a decent price.

    Same here with the bezel, Carl. I wasn‘t impressed at all. I had the 300MC and it took me a while to realize that the wide and slightly overhanging bezel contributed to the hockey puck look on my small wrist. It took Dan‘s first pics to make me try on the LE and then there was no way back.

    I have some days when I wish I would have bought the RMLE but I know myself well enough that I would then be yearning for something a little sportier. Can‘t have it all, I guess. And buying a second one is absolutely out of the question because I don’t want any kind of collection. For me, the 300 is the perfect one watch, like the Sub, EX1, Speedy, PO or AT for many others.

    Re: ****Official 1957 Trilogy Owners Thread****

    I'm sorry to hear that. but totally understand where you are coming from. I've tried that reference on and really is beautiful. So which pieces will you be selling and keeping?

    This forum is my favourite little space on the internet. WUS is a great website, but little F20 is where it's at with all my friends I can chat to and catch up with

    Yep I'm thinking it will be a great watch for me. The sapphire reference does nothing for me at all (It was the one I had years before) The hesalite just makes it for me. It's been said a 1000 times, but it adds to the warmth and vintage feel of the watch
