I think it was the Railhead? Railmaster?

Any way looked like something I'd pick up at the Guess store. <|<|<|

:-( Oh well to each his own. it just looked WAY to big, but then again I don't have a huge wrist. My Nighthawk is my biggest watch.

More precisely, it's the size of a pocket watch. For what it's worth, I think there's a reason why the XL Railmaster is that size. In the late 1800s into the 1900s, "railroad grade" pocket watches were designed to high standards and were, as required, extremely accurate. Sometimes, lugs were welded and straps were attached, resulting in oversized wristwatches.

My guess is that, with the 49mm XL Railmaster, Omega is giving a nod back to those exceptional watches.

I'd have to wear that railmaster on my thigh to get a proportional look.
