I was in love with the aesthetic and history of the Speedmaster since the first time I saw it in a jewellery store window display. About 5 years later, and after visiting the store as often as I could to stare at the watch, I made up my mind that one day I would own an OMEGA Speedmaster Professional. Twenty-five years later my dream was realized.
I love my Speedmaster, and it has tremendous sentimental value. However, if I was forced to pick just one watch to live the rest of my life with I think I would chose this '57 Railmaster Reissue;
The simplicity and elegance of the Railmaster makes it an extremely versatile watch that, dressed up or down, can be worn in any environment or for any occasion.
Previously, when addressing the question of which watch I would choose if I could only choose one, I would always listen to my heart and go with my Speedmaster. However, if I go with reason over emotion, the Railmaster would be the logical choice.
Like the Speedmaster, the Railmaster is a strap monster. It's all business on it's elegant yet sporty bracelet, but put it on leather and it'll be right at home pretty much anywhere;
I'm just as fickle as the next watch enthusiast, so I thought I'd share these thoughts about my Railmaster before things change.
Thanks for reading, and have a nice Easter weekend!
