Will post pictures as soon as my Railmaster arrives:-! It`s the 39mm version.
Good choice. Wearing mine again today. Looks like nothing else is getting wrist time for a few days. Too nice of a watch!

Hey Heat! Can't wait to see the Rail. A wonderful looking watch. Did you get used? Congratulations. John Wilson

John's Railmaster pix helped sway me to buy one...

Beware of his pictures.
Thanks! It's one of my favorites to photograph. The hardest is the X-33! I'm thinking because it's TI? A lot of times the camera does not capture the shade of the metal correctly. John Wilson.

Damn Guys ....

you RM owners are killing me. Every time I get close to buying a Speedy, something else begins to get my attention. I think my problem is that I like the Speedy more on other peoples wrist. Any of you ever try on the RM chrono? Now that is a fine watch. - David

No arguments with you on that But the chrono's as a big as a barn. :-(
I can't get my 39mm RM off my wrist. Omega magically captured classic vintage design with their newer co-axial movement. Best retro watch I've seen in years by anyone. I can live without the second hand (sort of) ;-).
Was looking at the Dynamic reissues, but RM still trumps them.

Don't know about that, but surfaces reflect light differently. Also, the human eye sees what it wants to see, but the camera sees it all. You might have to make adjustments in a good photo editing program to get it to appear as you shot it. Could be something easy like adjusting the color temperature. to go from warm to cool, or vice-versa.

I can safely say that no Omega publicity watch pictures were not retouched significantly. The watch pictures that you and others post are much "purer".
Only wish we got the hefty day rate + expenses that the Omega photog got. Plus he had the wine and caviar spread out for the Omega execs on the set.

This was taken with the Canon G1. It captured the TI metal very well. If I hold the watch to this photo it's identical. John Wilson.

Now that's the best X-33 pic yet for color.

Do I now have to go buy one?
Please John, stop posting pictures of watches I don't own.

Beautiful watch. Enjoy your new addition. I've always like the simplicity of this watch. Looks great on a leather strap too. :-!

Soo many nice watches...too little money to buy them all.
