    That NATO looks stunning on the Seamaster! Glad you decided to keep that one. At first, I thought the Railmaster was my favorite. Well, it still is, but I have grown so fond of the Seamaster now. I can't think why I even contemplated selling it at one point!

    Could never forget the old bomber jacket. Had that since 1997. I'm always a bit sad when Spring comes around, because I know it won't get worn until next Fall. Still, this is a special occasion!

    Looks great Carl, and thanks for the pic.

    The tan leather strap on your SM is actually the one supplied with it. The RM leather strap is black. And yes, the brown one with the Speedy is gorgeous. I bought it for my SM but find it a bit too thin. Wore it for a day earlier in the week. These days I really only use the bracelet and the dark brown Nato.

    Thanks, John. With so many options, I'm easily confused!! At first, I wasn't sure about the thickness, and thought it might be a bit too thin. But after I had it on a while, didn't even notice. Just seems to suit the watch. Maybe later, I will get bold, and try one of the NATO straps as well.

    Just caught up on the journey Carl - amazing and congratulations on getting to your current state. Omega really hit this set out of the park and if I was in a more favourable financial position I’d be hunting down a trilogy of my own.

    I knew once I handled the speedy it was the one for me - the size, hesalite and dial tied in well together and even though I missed out on a pre-owned Railmaster a few months prior I was kind of relieved because if I had bought that I wouldn’t have had the funds to pick up the Speedy..

    Anyway an obligatory shot of the Speedy since I haven’t even posted in this thread before even though I’ve owned the thing since December!









    Kind Regards,
    Gary.

    Great shots, Gary. I never even got the chance to see the Speedy until a couple of weeks ago! When I got my Railmaster last year, it was the only one they had at the Boutique. Months later, out at a shopping mall where there is an Omega AD, I saw the Seamaster 300 in the display window. Even though I couldn't really afford it, I made it work, and I haven't seen another for sale since. And it was the first time I ever laid eyes on one. This time, after recently selling a couple of watches, when I saw the Speedy at the Boutique, that was it!

    Anyway, keep posting pics from time-to-time.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Favor to ask...

    Any owners of the Seamaster 300 LE with a 6.2 - 6.5 inch wrist, could you post some on-wrist photos for me? It would be most appreciated as I have an opportunity to purchase one pre-owned but am very worried about the L2L on my very flat, boney, 6.5 inch wrist. My usual size is 36mm with L2L's of 46 and lower.

    Thank you in advance!!

    Here you go. My wrist is 6.2 and it works for me. No lug overhang, actually still some space. 44-46mm L2L would be even better but this is totally fine. And the short endlink of the bracelet also helps. So you should be fine.
