The original OMEGA Railmaster of 1957 was a practical yet elegant anti-magnetic watch designed for railway staff or anyone who worked close to electrical fields. Today, that industrial spirit and innovation have been updated for a modern collection.
In this denim-inspired model, the 40 mm symmetrical case is made from stainless steel with a wave-edged design featured on the back. The vertically brushed “blue jeans” dial includes brushed stainless steel hands and recessed hour-markers which are all filled with light grey Super-LumiNova. There is also a beige central second hand and transferred “Railmaster” indication which delivers a classic touch.
The watch has a stainless steel bracelet as well as an oriented case back featuring a NAIAD LOCK design to keep the wording in position. The watch is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, making it resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.
With a 40 mm brushed stainless steel case and conical crown, the Railmaster includes a vertically-brushed grey or black dial, recessed hour-markers filled with “vintage” Super-LumiNova, a railway minute track, OMEGA’s “crosshair” symbol of precision, and a “lollipop” central seconds reminiscent of the railways.
One of OMEGA’s most famous timepieces has returned! Discover the Railmaster collection, with an updated design and superb magnetic-resistance.
In 1957, OMEGA released its very first Railmaster model. Today, the timepiece has made a triumphant return. The Seamaster Railmaster arrives with the same simple and elegant design traits of the original – but with updated touches of style and the very best mechanical movement.
The first OMEGA Railmaster was built for railway staff or anyone who worked close to electrical fields. Able to resist magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss, it guaranteed reliable precision for the wearer. Thanks to its Master Chronometer movement, today’s Railmaster is 15 times more resistant and is able to withstand fields up to 15,000 gauss.
