I'm actually kind of upset that I don't like this LE more than I do. I should be loving it!! For years, I was asking the guys at the Omega Boutique if they had heard of the Railmaster being re-introduced, in one form or another. Never dreaming that they would actually do an almost perfect reissue of a vintage 50s model! It was the stuff that one dreams about, to see a reincarnation of a beautiful vintage model. Now that it's here, and actually something I visualized and never dreamed would happen, I find that I think the new model will be more appealing! At one time I even thought that if I had such a watch, it would be "The One". Now it has appeared, and in an affordable form, I try it on, and have a kind of take-it-or-leave-it reaction!
Wearing my Rolex OP34 today, I put it back on my wrist and left the Boutique without any remorse whatsoever. WTF!! I had a wonderful dinner tonight with one of my best friends, and we talked about everything, and I had lots of drinks and wine, and never gave the watch a second thought. Perhaps the thought of the Patek Philippe I am getting in a few short months has clouded my appreciation of all other watches? Anyway, I am quite happy to accept the course of events unfolding in my corner of the world just now, and I am actually very happy with my small collection at the moment. The Tudor BB36 still being my most worn.
