    Greetings all,
    New member here. Just thought I'd say hello and one of my best friends also wants to say hi (see attached).Ive recently become extremely enamoured of Omega as a brand that is doing many things right. Love my 57 , that and my GS SBGM 221 get most wrist time. I've never owned a speedy but now want to rectify this. I also like watches that are a bit unique . I do like the Professional, went in to look at that, but he said " I've got something in the back that might work" and brought out a Speedmaster 57 (sandwich dial) and a Snoopy. He knows me well :). They're all stunning pieces- I suspect I'll be struggling a bit to decide.
    Anyway, I'm impressed with the level of knowledge about Omega. Won't be able to contribute much but will sure be able to learn.
    Cheers
    Kevin

    Welcome mate, of all the Railmasters made since the original, that ‘57 re-edition is the one you definitely want to have. The best modern example by far.

    Welcome to the forum, that is a lovely watch. I see you are observing Tuesday toes-day with your wrist shot. :)

    That is lovely one of my favorites to see (I don’t have one). Don’t worry about what you will be able to contribute I’ve been posting for years and have yet to contribute anything of meaning.
