This is a great thread. I love hearing everyone's thought processes when buying a watch. I think the 39mm is right for my 7.25" wrist (which I actually consider small) since all of my other Omega watches are on the larger side (PO, SMPC, GMT, etc..). I also like to wear my watches loose. I will say that the 36mm Railmaster seems to wear larger than say a 36mm Rolex Explorer. I guess it's the dial size. I also am a big fan of only wearing it on the steel bracelet, but I've seen enough pics on this thread to know that it's one of those watches that looks great on just about anything.
While I love how flat the watch sets on the wrist, one thing that bothered me is that glass backed watches always tend to stick to my wrist when I get a little sweaty. My solution is to spray the back of the watch with Windex or some type of window cleaner when it starts sticking. I do that because I usually wear a watch all day and night (yeah, I wear a watch to bed) and usually only take them off when I shower.
edition. Now I would really love to have that one.......I would even put on some more blubber around the wrist to accommodate it!
Railmaster numbers should be thick.
'Cos that's old-school.

But I would take the AT version over the new non-LE version...I haven't warmed up to that one yet...

Calling all Railmaster aficionados.... I have a sneaky suspicion that the crown on my preowned Railmaster was replaced, But looking for some input from others that own the watch.
Here's a picture of the crown logo,
And here's a picture of a space that I see between the crown and the case. In this pic the crown is screwed down as far as it will go.
As you can see, the light passes through above and below and it appears the crown Is not down all the way. This could be completely normal, as the crown has a bevel on the side of it that faces the case, but as I have nothing to compare it to I'm looking for guidance.
Thanks in advance.
