    I was also in between 39 and 36 and decided to give a try to the 39 mm (again, as had one briefly about 3 years ago); first impression is good! Came on steel:




    but switched to an Omega OEM Alligator / deployant:



    Very nice lume:




    and timegrapher performance!

    It wears extremely well on my 6.5 inch wrist. Slim, light, but still has the the heft and substance of a modern watch. It's my GADA watch from now on.

    It's also a strap monster. Almost every strap looks good on this watch!

    Thanks to workahol and teeritz, this Railmaster (along with my Speedmaster Pro, Seamaster PO 2201.50, and CK2846) completes the core of my collection.
    Congrats. Wear it in good health.

    ...And there it is after a year with the 39mm. The 36mm straight from the service with a brand new bracelet.

    It does look a lot better on a bracelet I have to say! The size, the presence, the feel. Everything seems to be just about perfect now. And it definitely is the most comfortable watch to wear that I've owned.

    In the woods on the very first day...

    And the 39mm from last summer:

    Not bad but the 36mm is definitely better for my wrist!

    With a bracelet this is truly an exceptionally versatile watch. Yesterday I wore it with a formal office shirt, blazer, sweatshirt, long-sleeved running shirt and a t-shirt and it worked really well with all of them. The difference between bracelet and strap is a lot bigger than I thought. I think the strap will stay in the watch box for a while...

    I concur! Mine stays on the bracelet all the time, which works in basically any scenario.

    Separately, I have recently picked up a silver-dialed 36mm Aqua Terra of similar vintage - same case as the 36mm Railmaster. I've been wearing it on a strap, which has been nice because the lighter dial tends to wear a bit larger anyway. So now I have two different permutations of the same basic watch case I can alternate between.



    That's a 19mm Hirsch Ascot in the Gold Brown color, by the way.

    Sorry for the thread derailment - we now return to our regularly scheduled Railmaster content.

    As I've said before, this watch belongs on the bracelet. I agree with everything you said. Such a versatile piece, light on the wrist, it just is a perfectly understated watch. The 36 looks great on you. Congrats on getting the bracelet.

    On a separate issue. Where did you send it for service and how much did it run you?

    Thanks. I took it to an official Omega service center here in Finland. Cost me 1200 euros (around 1350 dollars) for full service and the bracelet. Worth every penny. :)

    Re: A tale of two Railmasters

    Hi everyone -
    I had my 36 up for sale for two weeks last month but never could walk the extra mile to settle something - and for now I like it even more :))

    Peace!
