    Very nice!

    One of these days I'd like to compare the 36mm Railmaster to a 36mm Explorer. Probably not room in my collection for both, given that they are very similar, but it would be interesting to see them side by side.

    The picture next to the planet ocean really tells a story. Thanks for posting this!

    I love the 36mm explorer, prefer the 1016, but the 14270/114270 is great as well. But you are right, I can't justify having both because they are essentially the same watch. The Railmaster will always stay in my collection. Only significant benefit of the explorer would be the 20mm lug width.

    It's funny because when I bought my first Railmaster (39mm) it was a watch I thought would hold me over until I could save up and buy an explorer (39mm).

    I've realized 36mm is such a better fit for my wrist and I'm so glad I hunted down a 36mm Railmaster. There is still a small desire for a 14270, but the Railmaster will never leave. It's just too special of a watch. I love how the 36mm case floats on my wrist, the dial proportions are perfect, the reflective hands against the flat black dial always looks flawless.

    Anyways I got to try on a 14270 in MN this past year. Here's my comparison shots.

    Boy oh boy, I could have written the above paragraph myself, you said it exactly. And thanks for the photos, very interesting!

    I guess I'm in the middle of this as well. I've had a 2803.52 for a year now but at times it just feels too large for my 6,7 inch wrists. Especially when looked from a distance through a mirror or when used with a t-shirt.

    Well, this Friday I bumped into a 2804.52 in good shape for 1700 euros and ordered it at once. I'm pretty sure that the 39mm will be on sale pretty soon... And my next hunt will be for a 19 mm Railmaster/Aqua Terra bracelet.

    I do think the 36mm is the sweet spot for sub 7inch wrists. Congrats. I'm curious how sourcing a bracelet will go for you. Keep us posted.
