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

    I'm glad to hear to agree John Although it's 42mm I found it wore really nicely. I don't like it on the bracelet which is a good thing as it makes it wear too big for my wrist too. This thing will be on the straps for life. I'll be getting it on leather with deployant clasp I think.

    The history became a second thing for me and one that I've now become fascinated by and spent a lot reading up about it.

    Shots from the OB last week.

    I hear you regarding the Sub, but I'm not in a rush at all and fancy a change of pace with the Speedy for a while. Plus I need to get off my backside and list the PO and 300 on here first.

    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****

    To be honest Dan, that looks just like mine, too big. There seems to to be no curving, the strap goes to down in a straight line at the 6 o‘clock side, and the other side may not be much better. That‘s too big, at least for me.
    Had the same with the 300MC on strap.
    It is a little bit better with the bracelet because that goes all the way up to the case which leads to at least a slight curve.

    My ideal lug to lug would probably be around 44mm. Even the 300LE ist stretching it with 48mm, but it works on bracelet because of the female endlinks and on the Nato as well because that also continues right up to the case. Leather is soso.

    It's hard to take a decent wrist shot, but it does curve a little. No lug overhang. It is on the upper end of size that I can get wear for sure

    yes indeed, I had no lug overhang either but it just wasn‘t for me. But in the end it must please you and not me. And overall it looks nice, and I would also prefer it on a strap. And as you said, the Speedy looks great on a lot of straps

    That’s fair enough. Intensely personal things watches.

    Anyway, getting this thread back on track. Here is an old shot I took of my 300 last summer.

    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
    Unfortunately, the Seamaster 300 60th LE will likely be going. It just doesn't get wrist time, with the Railmaster being top of the list for me. And, as I mentioned, the FOIS Sedna. Then one of my Panerai watches, the PAM 720, LE Radiomir with blued hands and plexi crystal. It is a beauty, but I also have the 721 which is identical except that it has the anonymous dial, where the 720 has "Radiomir Panerai" on the dial. They are both LE models, only I got the 720 first thinking that the 721 is no longer available. Guess I should have tried harder, but there it is. Both watches have blued hands and a spare plexi crystal. If they got equal wrist time, I would keep both. But the 721 is the one I prefer.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Worrying to see some of you guys thinking about offloading the Seamaster, one even for a 14060. I'm considering both the 14060m and the Seamaster as a good black dial dive all-rounder. I don't like the Rolex at nearly double the price for what is now a very common watch. The Seamaster has a unique look, possibly too unique for some?

    It's not about uniquness for me. It's more a case of the 300 being too vintage looking and not suiting my lifestyle. The 14060m is a classic looking Sub. What price it is worth is a personal thing. The 300 is a superb watch with a very good movement. If you like the look of 300, then you can't go wrong.

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

    Yokied, I think that indeed not everyone likes the vintage look. The Speedy is probably the most popular of the three 57 LEs, and quite a lot of people in the WIS crowd like the RM. The 300 is somewhere in-between, I guess. As they are still around you can probably try it on somewhere. But if you say you don‘t like the Rolex for the reasons you stated it wouldn’t really make sense to buy one, right?
    P.S. I love my 300 LE for its look and perfect size
