    A tale of two Railmasters

    I'm considering buying again the RM on the 39 mm size (which owned before) rather than the 36 mm size. Here are a some pictures of my former 39 mm RM:









    and my former 39 mm 2503.33 :






    and a former 36 mm blue Aqua Terra for comparison on my 7 1/8 inch round wrist:







    Opinions on size (36 versus 39)??

    IMHO the 39.2mm is better.
    The smaller dial on 36mm looks a little bit tight / squeezed, but it also depends on the wrist size and configuration.

    I had the 39mm and it wears enormous. I usually think 36mm is too small but I think it works for the Railmaster.

    I think the 39 looks way too big on you. It seems to swallow your wrist. The outer edges of the lugs are flush with the sides of your wrist. I’d go for the 36 mm. For comparison here’s the 39mm RM on my 7.5 inch wrist. I think for me the 39mm size is perfect.

    Perhaps you have a small wrist size or maybe it's not flat that's why it looked enormous

    My wrist is about 7 inches in diameter, I wear 42mm Seamasters and Speedmasters without any issues. The Railmaster has a very thin bezel and is all dial, which made it feel like I was wearing a 42 to 43mm watch. I don't mind 42mm on a chrono or diver but it just felt so big for the style of watch.

    7 inches in circumference, not Diameter!
