A watch as precise as science
The special anti-magnetic double case back, with which this watch model was equipped in 1957, protected the movement from damage caused by strong electric fields. For this reason, the watch became particularly popular with people who worked in the vicinity of strong electrical currents. Not only railway staff liked to wear the Omega Seamaster Railmaster, electricians, technicians and scientists were also enthusiastic about the model. Even with magnetic fields of a strength of up to 1000 Gauss, the movement ran unswervingly with the highest precision (e.g. reference 126.96.36.199.01.002).
The new edition does not disappoint either
The new edition of this classic watch in the form of the Omega Seamaster Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer was launched in 2003. It is available both in a 40 mm and a 38 mm stainless steel case with conical crown. The white or black dial is vertically brushed and equipped with self-luminous hands. It is driven by the anti-magnetic Master Chronometer caliber 8806, which is located behind the undulating case back and of course winds itself. Today, by the way, the watch withstands an unbelievable 15,000 Gauss without any problems. You have the choice between a stainless steel, leather or textile bracelet. This allows you to adjust the clock to your style. The Omega brand is also convincing with this type of watch. If you are looking for a classic yet technically unsurpassed model with small design elements reminiscent of the railways of the 1950s, the Omega Seamaster Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer will certainly not disappoint you.
