Non-LE has been my main wristwatch for just over a year, but it feels much longer. Just finished a 50 mile backpacking trek through mountains with my Railmaster, so another memory stored!

Love the quality and feel of the steel bracelet, but I really love the way straps make the lug shapes more sharp and pronounced. I thought the brushed dial would steal the show, but the machining quality of the case with its razor sharp lines actually became my favorite part of the watch.

Here is a shot of my now flipped 36mm Railmaster.

That 36mm was the best of that generation Railmaster IMO! It was also my first. And, for quite a while, I did regret selling it. Now I believe it is virtually impossible to find. Fortunately, the 60th Anniversary Trilogy came along and, for the first time, I no longer regret selling the 36mm.

Cheers,
Carl

Yep, ended up finding a few, most of them in Europe and Asia. Finally bought mine from an US seller have dealt with before (Kringkily)

36 mm RM 2504.52 : a true beauty in all bracelet / leather band configurations have tried so far!

That 36mm 2504.52 is the best! My first Railmaster. Seeing these pics, reminds me how much I miss mine, when I thought I did not! When I got the Trilogy Railmaster, I thought my missing the 2504.52 was over, but I guess not. Yes, it does look good on almost any strap or bracelet.

Cheers,
Carl

I’ve been on the fence with this guy for a long time. I’ve talked myself out of it many times then got curious.

I picked up a trilogy piece which I thought was neat. Then I looked at the remake.

It’s been a while since I’ve been enamored with a watch. I’ve scuffed you many polished watches working and have cried myself but this is so robust and a joy to wear.

I don’t have too many words like others with reviews. Take this as a strong vote for a solid everyday. I hope that others can learn to appreciate and enjoy as well.

Most people like to match their watch with their clothes, I like to compliment my watch with my wheels. My Railmaster's black dial juxtaposed with my white FJ62 are cohered by their vintage attributes.
