The Omega Railmaster

The Omega Seamaster is for water sports what the Omega Speedmaster is for racing (or space…), but what about the Railmaster? Train conducting?

Released in 1957 as part of Omega’s tool watch trilogy, the Omega Railmaster was essentially a watch for tradesmen and engineers; people who worked with their hands, but more importantly around magnetic fields, which as we know can cause timepieces to become severely inaccurate. The Omega Railmaster was Omega’s first highly anti-magnetic watch, resisting up to 1,000 gauss of magnetic energy. Omega was a bit late to the anti-mag game, as the Rolex Milgauss and IWC Ingenieur were already on the market, but made up for it by releasing three watches at once (in economic terms the Omega Speedmaster certainly made up for any losses). . . .
