Ok so there are blogs all over the place that have been doing coverage of the Basel fair this year so I thought I would just pick out a few things that I think are interesting....

One of them is this Omega Trilogy Box Set of 'Vintage Re issues' including Speedmaster '57, Railmaster and Seamaster 300 the original.

I've owned an original 300 and an early 50's Speedmaster... to me they are ok watches but always seemed a little lightweight for my wrist... with maybe the Speedmaster being ok.... but if you wanted a vintage 'yet modern' group of watches I think if you have the cash it might be a nice thing to buy....

The bracelets are modern re versioning of the original but with better clasps as they original bracelets were pretty rubbish. The watches themselves are the same dimensions 40ishmm and the differences are slight to original. Not using original movements but I think the Rail Master and Seamaster are Master Chronometer Certificated cal. 8806 and the Speedmaster is a cal 1861 pricing not confirmed but looking at CHF 20,000 or approx 16K that's a lot of cash...
