    Hi all! Well I’ve got bit by the RM bug and I’m on the hunt. To anyone shopping around lately, do you all have a consensus about what the market value might be for the 36mm and 39mm variants? I see some 39mm hovering around low 2,000 USD and the only 36mm I’ve seen is asking roughly 3,000 USD. I have an approximately 7in wrist, so I’m thinking 39mm is the way to go, although I do have a vintage 34mm Rolex Oysterdate that I really enjoy wearing. Thank you all in advance for your advice!

    Hi rt3esq,

    I had the 41mm briefly, & it 'fitted' without overhanging my just under 7.5" wrist, but decided too big for optium.

    I have the 39mm now (2503.52), a very big jump down in size for allegedly just 2mm, & a much better fit.
    Pretty certain the 36mm would be way small for me.

    (I just lost a fair bit selling a brand new Hamilton Khaki 38mm here to change to a 42mm one instead - the 38mm was a great watch but decided almost unwearably small for me).

    Here's the 41mm Railmaster :

    ... & with a 42mm Planet Ocean 2500 :

    (Thanks to Chrono24 & Jerome at WatchVaultNYC in San Diego & I was able to return it & exchange for a 39mm)

    Here's the 39mm with the same 42mm Planet Ocean :

    Much smaller, more comfortable & far easier to wear!

    Hope some of that's been useful to you, rt3esq.

    I'd look on Watchrecon (you can set up a search & be notified when any are posted on one of multiple, er..."fora", and check on Chrono24.
    Should be able to see a fair range of prices & in different condition, both for sale & already sold.

    e.g. : https://www.watchrecon.com/?query=Ra...31&brand=omega

    & : https://www.chrono24.com/omega/seama...ega+Railmaster

    Very best of luck, whatever you decide '

    Re: A tale of two Railmasters

    Just joined the 36mm club! A few initial thoughts:

    - I can't imagine going any bigger for my 6.25 inch wrists. I imagine this size would work for most people.
    - The case and dial have more depth and look better in person.
    - I originally wanted to wear it on a brown leather strap (still need to find a 19mm one), but i'm wondering if the original bracelet is the best option.
    - Despite a reflective crystal, this watch is still VERY legible.
    - I'm not sure how I feel about the slight green hue to the Super-LumiNova on the dial. We'll see if it bothers me over time. This dial in tritium would be amazing.

    Congrats! Yes, I believe this watch belongs on the bracelet. I just ordered another half link for mine and it finally fits like a dream.

    The watch is incredibly legible, especially the lume in the dead of night. And the greenish tiny to the lume I think gives a bit more depth. Most scenarios it looks white.

    Welcome to the club!

    Put mine back on steel. I absolutely feel this watch looks best on the original bracelet.

    Is this a 19mm bracelet? I’m considering a less blingy option for my RM trilogy.

    Not sure which size this one is, but my 36mm took a 19mm bracelet. Not sure if it would fit the RM Trilogy though despite being 19mm. Be easier for you to just get the bracelet fully brushed.
