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.
    Here's what I think...

    First off, if I bought watches according to what other people liked, disliked, or thought, I wouldn't have one watch to my name. There are so many different things to like or dislike about a watch. There is no one watch that is perfect in everyones eyes.

    Secondly, the only valuation that plays a part in my decision is whether or not the price of a watch I like is worth shelling out the money to put it on my wrist. I compare watches on their merits and intrinsic value, and nothing else.

    I could go on and on about this, but I'll just leave it at that.

    Others may have a differing opinion, but that's what I think.

    Enjoy your Seamaster 300! It's a beauty!

    Bingo! Buy what you like and let others buy what they like. Everyone is happy. Repeat...

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

    That totally makes sense and I agree. I love the watch. And speaking purely selfishly, the undervaluation of the Seamaster greatly benefitted me because I was actually able to get it, and at a reasonable price. Maybe that’s enough.

    I’m actually deciding between the RMLE and OP39 for my next watch!

    I know what I’m getting fit wise with the RM but it’s nearly impossible to try on the OP39 in white to see if I would prefer that instead.

    Wouldn’t mind hearing your thoughts on both!
