    I'm with you there, Doc. I have made no secret of hoping for something special from Omega in 2017, since I'm of 1957 vintage myself. But...I don't think I could ever buy a new watch with faux patina -- it just rubs me the wrong way.

    That Railmaster though...that would be the most tempting of the three...

    If I had not purchased the new Explorer last year, the Railmaster would be a target. I appreciate everything that Omega has launched so far and the direction RA has taken.

    I am on the waitlist for the Speedy Tuesday. I was really hoping one of these would make me not care about the Speedy Tuesday. I definitely like these new releases, but I think I ma going to hang in there and wait to see if my number is called.

    I agree. I also don't like that its aesthetically the same as the original. That's kinda wrong in my opinion. It should have something unique.

    It's really nice and I really really like the size. But a 100% re-edition is a bit disingenuous to those who own the original (not me - I wish). Wish they made it the same but with unique subdials or bezel. Something that says its a different watch.

    But it is lovely. I will have to think about this because I was so excited about the size!

    and this is not gonna change SpeedyTuesday owners one bit imo... not that I think it ever was going to.

    What are the chances that the new SM300 bezel will fit the originals? Slim to none?

    Three very nice looking watches. I wonder if they will do a limited numbered set of three.
