    B&S have that same look with the vintage stitch near the lugs. I found their steps a little on the soft side almost rubbery which makes it super comfortable but found after a few strap changes the lug width was slightly compressed so you could see the spring bars.

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

    I just got this in the mail today from a fellow member of the forum. What a great watch. Proportions are perfect. Just enough polished facets to catch the eye without looking overly "blingy." The aged lume looks great to my eye as well. This is my first Omega with the METAS chronometer movement, so I'm really looking forward to assessing its accuracy as well.

    Congratulations!! That's a great pick up.

    I think you're going to be very impressed with the accuracy. I don't worry too much about accuracy (unless it's way off, obviously), but I was blown away by the accuracy of my Trilogy Railmaster. It's running at +16 seconds over 16 days. That's about +0.5 spd.

    Have fun with your new Trilogy Seamaster!! My Railmaster says hi!!

    Congrats on your RMLE

    I’ve been contemplating this one too - how do you compare it to your speedy?

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

    These watches are excellent, but I wonder why Omega decided to make them limited editions? Surely there's an ongoing market for something like this.

    Also, has anyone fitted a tapered bracelet (if there is another 19mm Omega bracelet from the back catalog) to any of these watches? I feel like the bracelet was a missed opportunity, and should have been tapered to feel more original. I'm not a fan of the bracelet they've been offering on the Speedmaster Pro either, the straight 20mm one. It's just not right.

    Congrats on your RMLE

    I’ve been contemplating this one too - how do you compare it to your speedy?
    Thank you!!

    How does it compare to my Speedy:

    Well, I'll begin with the size. I have a 6.5", flat wrist and I think I pull off the Speedmaster pretty well. The Railmaster on the other hand, at 38mm, I think is the perfect size. Even with its straight lugs it just fits so nice. I love my Speedy, but the Railmaster fits me better I think.

    The dial on the Railmaster is amazing! I know I'm in the minority, but I like the "faux patina". I don't think of it as "faux patina", I just see it as lume with an orangey tint. That, along with the "tropical" dial and minimalist, vintage script really speaks to me.

    The dial on the Speedmaster is obviously more busy...it being a chronograph and all. However, as far as legibility goes, you can't beat the Speedy. At a quick glance it's just so easy to read the time. Even in low light situations the white, stick hands are very prominent on the dial.

    In low light the highly faceted and polished hands of the Railmaster do catch the light nicely, and it's quite a sight to see, but the watch has to be moved around in order for the light to hit the hands. That is not the case with the Speedmaster. Those hands are visible from every angle.

    While we're speaking of hands, and this is probably my only issue with the Railmaster, is the way the polished centre seconds hand disappears in any light that is not natural. Like the faceted and polished hour and minute hands, the light has to hit the seconds hand just right in order for it to be visible under incandescent light. This was one of the things I actually loved about the watch when I first saw it in the metal...how the seconds hand just disappeared. But after wearing it for a few weeks I find that it's not very functional. However I don't find this to be an issue outdoors under more even, natural light.

    I was never a fan of the visual aesthetic of the bracelet on the new Speedmasters, but when I had the bracelet sized and actually got to wear it on my wrist I found the bracelet to be very comfortable. I never learned to love the look of bracelet, but I did get to like it. The comfort factor helps.

    The bracelet on the Railmaster, however, is gorgeous and super comfortable. Putting aside the micro adjustable clasp for the moment, I love everything about it...the brushed centre links with polished outer links, the liquid-like fluidity of the links, the flat, squared-off vintage aesthetic, the perfect weight to balance out the head of the watch.

    While comfortable, the Speedy's bracelet just can't compete. I understand that the weight of said bracelet is there to counterbalance the head of the heavier watch head, but I think it falls short on all other counts. Also, a micro adjustable clasp on the Speedmaster bracelet would definitely improve the wearing experience.

    While it's unfair to compare the 1861 movement of the Speedmaster with the 8806 Master Chronometer movement of the Railmaster I must say that, after a recent service, the Speedy is holding its own at -2 seconds per day. Not bad at all when compared to the +0.787 spd of the highly accurate Co-Axial movement of the Railmaster (+19 seconds over 579 hours).

    If forced to have to choose between the two of them I would be truly and honestly stumped. I love each for it's own merits.

    Sorry to have rambled on, but I hope this helps giving you some insight into my views on these two watches.

    Thank you Rene for that detailed feedback - appreciate the time and effort you put into the post.

    I previously had a speedy pro and while I loved it the bracelet really let it down (and to a less degree the size was on the bigger side) so I went for the speedy trilogy and for me it’s the perfect speedy for almost the identical reasons you enjoy the Railmaster.

    I had a choice between the GO and RM - which obviously ended with me getting the GO which I adore but there is one thing it lacks to be an everyday watch, which is a bracelet which is why the RM is coming back into the picture.

    I’ve tried the BB58 to fill in that but I didn’t feel it was the right fit for me. I love the speedy especially the fit and feel on wrist and I think the RM will be exactly the same and a perfect pair.

    Now just to find one!

Size:  107.4 KBI’m not sure how to phrase this, because I don’t want to cause offense, but a recent post on Fratello did the wrist game or crying shame evaluation of the Speedmaster Trilogy. The author mentioned the fauxtina, size, number of “limited” watches released, and large clasp has possible reasons the Trilogy sells below retail, even though its limited. For me personally, I love the lume, find the clasp not large at all, and love the size (though I have the Seamaster not the Speedmaster, I believe the bracelets are the same.) What explains the market’s valuation of these watches then? I’m at a loss, especially as I compare it to the Sub, which I find mundane and overpriced, even at retail. I’m truly curious as to what you all think.

    Trilogy Railmaster is very sexy... love that clean blank bezel and arrow hand set a great deal.
    If I didn't have the trilogy speedy arrows, and my OP39 3 hander with a clean blank bezel I would be hunting for one...
