Omega reissues the legendary Railmaster
The very first model Railmaster came out in 1957. It was intended for railway workers and those who worked near the sources of electric fields, because it was able to withstand a magnetic field up to 1000 gauss, guaranteeing accuracy in any circumstances (most antimagnetic watches of that time could withstand 60 gauss only).
Today, 60 years later, Railmaster comes back triumphantly. Its reissue is an exciting and long-awaited event for collectors and connoisseurs.
The new OMEGA Railmaster features the Master Chronometer movement of 8806 caliber, a 15 times higher resistance to the magnetic field than the historical prototype. The gray dial is marked with a timeline reminiscent of the track and the OMEGA cross. The hour and minute hands are made in the form of pointers, and the second hand is in the form of a semaphore baton.
The new watch is presented by Presley Gerber, the son of the supermodel Cindy Crawford, who is the ambassador of the brand for many years.
The model is available for order in the boutiques of the brand in GUM and VESNA in Moscow and in Sochi.
