    Please Omega don't bring the Railmaster back!! I like being part of such an exclusive club, I'll never get rid of my 41.

    Grandpa says hi. 35mm,18mm lug, 41.5mmL-L on my 6.75" wrist. I, the blind pig, recently found
    it at a well known local vintage dealer. I literally leaped over the display counter to get it. when it
    comes to vintage Omega, I have no shame. :)

    Re: A tale of two Railmasters

    My Railmaster arrived just in time for Christmas!...I went with a 39mm and got a deal on one that needs a little TLC. For my 6.5" wrist, the 39mm is just barely pushing the limit, but still good. It definitely has a bold presence, but not in terms of heft, which is great.
    As much as I like the fully brushed bracelet, this watch really got my attention as soon as the I got the bracelet off. I prefer it on a strap which I think highlights the classic shape of the case.

    Fantastic thread.
    Is anyone able to supply the all important lug-to-lug measurements of the 39mm and 36mm variants?

    Re: A tale of two Railmasters

    The 39 measures 46.9mm lug to lug.
    i would imagine that the 36mm would be around 43mm lug to lug?

    Will definitely do - stay tuned, that is. Anxious to see comparison shots.

    I went back and forth, couldn't decide. In the end, the choice was quite easy: only the 39 mm was to be had brand new (one of 3 left in Omega's vault). So I jumped and stopped wondering.

    Agree with you on bracelet versus leather; mine has lived on leather from day 1 and the bracelet is wrapped and tucked away.

    Re: A tale of two Railmasters

    Marginally larger than yours: 6.75" on most days

    One more picture to liven up this thread:

    Strap in the earlier pic was a temporary one: broken / cracked strap that was originally on my '00 3570 Speedmaster Professional.
    The Railmaster now lives on this dark-brown crocq. Apologies for the smudges and dust in this shot - seems to happen more often than not with "quick wrist shots".
