Hi!
I'm new to this forum and looking for information on the vintage Railmaster. There seems to be (at least) 4 different versions. 2914-1 to -4.
What's the differences and does someone of you out there know of any summary? I'm especially interested in the caseback. I've seen the 2914-1 with blank (!) caseback but correct inner stamping. I've seen the caseback with text "Railmaster" and the sea logo and I've seen one with a large "C" and a large "R" on each side of the sea horse.
And then there are all the different hands...
Hope you can help me!
:thanks

Welcome to the forum, drej. I'm not a Railmaster expert, you can see Per K's correct caseback here. I'm not sure about a blank caseback, but it's possible it was simply polished out. The "C-R" back is likely a fake. These were copied from a photo in a Seamaster book.

Welcome Drej.

The first Railmaster 2914-1 did not have any Seahorse on the backcase.
Railmaster 2914-2 to 4 had Seahorse
Railmaster with C and R are truly fakes.

The 2914-1 to 3 had Big arrow head hands
2914-3 to 4 had dauphine hands. Not sure if there is any -5
The latest Railmaster from 1964 had straight hands.

Below you can see the different models


Here is an image of my Railmaster 2914-3

This my friend Uffe-Z Railmaster also 2914-3

The latest Railmaster 135.004

I have worked on a railmaster with the CR on the back. It certainly did not look fake. Omega made limited edition watches in small numbers for Circuit Racing and other events.
