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.
A History of Resistance
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.
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.
The Engine Rooom
The Railmaster is powered by the anti-magnetic Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, which is locked into place behind a wave-edged caseback that features an embossed Seahorse medallion. The NAIAD LOCK also keeps the wording on the caseback pleasingly in position.
