Superb Paul. The dial is obviously a bit of a chameleon, adding to the appeal. Lovely mate.

Well played Stefs and massive upgrade and brilliant choice with the Omega Railmaster!!!
Been looking at that exact piece for the last month. Hopefully will get to see one in the metal the end of next week. Beautiful :thumbup:

Bought it earlier this year Om. On balance I like the blue quite a bit more than my previous black model; interesting as when I saw early release photos of it, I thought the blue was way too bright, but in real life it’s not quite as vibrant... most of the time.

thanks watchaholic, Robin,Lance and Gaz for the kind words. No surprise it’s on again today!
Blowfish... The octo is an amazing watch. Are you tempted and what did you think when you tried it on?

Gary I think the Pelagos is very under rated and as soon as you put it on it all makes sense. Light and very comfy with a great bracelet. A brilliant dive tool watch option :thumbup:

I'm really interested to try one of those Octo Finissimos on, what did you make of it Om?

The Railmaster is a great looking watch, a good swap :thumbup:
Thanks Patrick. I have been a little surprised at just how nice it is in the metal. Of course if the folks at omega had a clue what they were doing they could have made it even better by reducing the diameter by 2mm and the thickness by the same. I can forgive them I guess and I'm sure they will get upto speed in the end :D
I'll beg to differ Paul as I think I like a watch slightly larger than you probably do. I'll give you 39mm but not 38!!

I had the Octo on about 7 months ago. One of the most amazing things I have ever tried on. So thin and light. Didn't think I would like the color, but amazing once it's on the wrist. Kinda wish it came in all black
