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

    Congratulations, Carl - can't wait for the pics.

    I have shown my Trilogy before - none of them a 60th Anniversary model.
    Those personal trilogies are way more meaningful and special than the box-sets.
    Enjoy yours.

    I have to second the sentiments about the quality of some people here on f20 and a few other corners of WUS
    The support I got here when going through the darkest period of my life ..... there are no words to express my gratitude.
    Thank you - you know who you are.

    Thanks for the congrats, and sharing all of your sentiments with me. I was mentioning today, when I was at the Omega Boutique picking up the Speedmaster, that the Omega Forum on WUS is a collection of some of the finest people I know on the forums.

    The folks at the Boutique are a fine bunch as well. Especially my good friend Jorge. I was there for over 4 hours today, not just picking up the watch, but visiting. I am so grateful to them as well. Funny, though, I find getting a new watch, especially this one today, quite emotional. In a good way, of course, feeling like the luckiest guy on earth! Anyway, gonna post a few pics, then maybe do a review tomorrow. With a Trilogy shot!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Well, I got my Speedy this afternoon! It was kind of a coincidence, because the guy who was wearing the first Trilogy model Speedy that I ever saw, happened to be there as well. It wasn't until yesterday that I got to examine it thoroughly, and by the time I got home had made my mind up.

    Anyway, a few shots I took on the way home this evening:









    Thanks to you guys for helping to make this such a Hell of a great experience for me!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    As usual, you've managed to take some superb photos and accompany it with some thoroughly enjoyable text. I feel like I was at the boutique too

    The Speedy looks superb. The hesalite really makes this watch! I know that you're a braceletr kind of chap, but I hope in due course to see some shots wearing the grey OEM NATO. Enjoy in great health my friend and Submariner who?

    Congrats Carl, it looks superb on you. Looking forward to pics of all three. It is funny how I like a Speedy on other people‘s wrists, just not on mine.

    You are right, the three would easily cover all bases, especially if you decide to mix it up a little with one on bracelet, one on leather and one on Nato.

    Thanks again, Dan.

    Submariner?! What Submariner? Ha! Yesterday was the first in the 17 days since I got the Sub that I didn't wear it. I wore the 60th Anniversary Seamaster when I went to pick up the Speedy. I know the day will come again soon, though, when I get a craving for the Sub.

    I am kind of getting more and more away from the bracelets, and have actually worn the Railmaster and the Seamaster on leather. But the Speedy has the most beautiful one of all IMO. It's a very rich kind of cocoa brown. My friend who I saw yesterday at the Boutique wears his on that strap all the time, and it really looks great. That will be my next venture!

    This is the Seamaster, actually on the tan leather strap that is supplied with the Railmaster. I put the bracelet back on, just because I felt being a diver it should have ss or rubber. I have no idea why I did that, though, as I don't dive! :



    I don't think I will ever take this leather strap off the Railmaster, though:



    There is such versatility with all the straps that Omega supplies with these watches, and then always the option of bespoke, the possibilities are endless!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Thanks, John. The Speedy was the last one I thought I would like. It is almost as though the dial and faux patina hands and markers are lighter than on the other two. Possibly because of the plexi crystal, I don't know. Overall it seems to give the effect of an even more vintage look.

    Definitely, will have to take a photo of the three together.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Thank you! I give a lot of credit to the domed plexiglass crystal on this one. It seems to make it so easy to get good photos!

    Cheers,
