What do you guys think of this strap combo?



It’s a Barton sailcloth.

I got my 36mm Raily back in 2012 and it will be a keeper. The simplicity of the dial layout, and its clarity, the more-than-needed 150m water-resistance, the great size for my school-girly 6.5 inch wrist

The Fratello Watches website did a recent write-up on the Co-Axial 39mm Railmaster and there were a few comments saying that this watch was boring. I don't get that at all.
Besides, it's not up to the watch to be interesting or exciting. That's up to the person wearing the watch.

It's a classic watch, one which is a nice, modern interpretation of the original model from 1957. Works very nicely on its original bracelet, although I wish it had a standard clasp like the Speedmaster and Seamaster range, but it does look pretty schmick on almost any other kind of strap you put on it. Here it is on a no-name $20.oo (AUD!) leather strap;

Yep. I can't fault this watch much. A different clasp would make it perfect, but it's pretty damn close as-is.

Great post, Tino. And fantastic pictures, as always.

I especially like the picture that tells the story of how Teeritz came about his Railmaster. I know I've looked at a watch many times in the past and come away not knowing the time.

I've always been a big fan of the original 1957 Railmaster ref. CK2914. After seeing pictures of the first 36mm, calibre 2500 interpretations of the watch (ref. 2504.52) I wanted one desperately. I thought it was an honourable nod to the original.

Then OMEGA released the 60th Anniversary Railmaster, and I think they've done a splendid job. A more modern size at 38mm, but still small enough to maintain the charm of the original 36mm. Also, the bracelet. I don't think I really have to say anything about the bracelet. Okay, I'll say this...stunning!!

I had an opportunity to see one at my AD and try it one. What a beauty!! I hope one day I'll be able to get my hands on one.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and pictures, Tino.
