Well Daniel for perfection on a Railmaster look no further! (below)38mm Trilogy/LE Railmaster. It has become my end-all, every day wearer.
The proportions are perfect as there is more metal between the dial and the edges of the case, making it wear like an intermediate size between the 36 and 39mm 2500 versions.
The broad arrow HOUR hand, the SOLID caseback with Railmaster logo, the incredibly accurate A-magnetic movement, the faux patina dial and hands duplicate and satisfy the vintage look of this model, straight lugs, screw bracelet links on a very comfortable bracelet with a durable and adjustable push-button clasp. Sure, it’s not perfect...
This is the sentiment I got from it too. It's so simple, yet versatile, so I figured I'd give it another go and start letting my other pieces go instead. But you're right, it's on the heavier side too. I'm going to see how I can get a 19mm Speedmaster bracelet on there somehow just to give it a try.Yes, a bit more taper on the bracelet would be nice on the RM LE, I agree, but I think the watch would be less balanced in terms of mass distribution as the head is on the heavy side. And yes, it’s 60m WR, yeah, more would be nicer, but it’s fine for daily wear and casual swimming. It’s the watch that finally made me stop collecting and start enjoying...
Still Loving mine. 36mm of goodness. Will never sell this one. It needs a trip to the spa though. Anyone serviced theirs recently?

Wow. Thanks for the info,. That seems like great pricing. I called an Omega AD in the states and said it would start at $600 and go up from there. . Also I ordered another half link and it was $60. Wonder if pricing in the states is just higher?Hi Btreichel87
I took my 2503.52 in for a full Omega service, new bezel & steel bracelet link last March (2019).
The service with 2-year guarantee & several changed parts included was HK$3,150. (US$1 = HK$7.75, so US$406.)
The extra bracelet link was HK$300 & the new bezel was HK$998. (US$38 & US$129 respectively) Ouch! ...& the new bezel looks well on its way to being as beaten-up as the old one just 13 months later)
Took 3 weeks. Service here usually is within 10 days, but my better half & I took my Railmaster in together with her Aqua Terra, & they had to send for bits)
Hope that's useful & that US prices are similar...
