OMEGA releases a new denim-inspired Railmaster

Swiss-based watchmaker has released a new Railmaster design, taking its inspiration from an industrial past.

The updated collection reflects that past with a denim-inspired model that pays homage to the original OMEGA Railmaster of 1957.

To link the iconic denim material with this new Railmaster, OMEGA has created a vertically-brushed ‘blue jeans’ dial that features indexes and hands with light-grey Super-LumiNova.

The model is presented on a genuine blue denim NATO strap with brown leather used on the underside and for the keepers, the same model is alternatively available on a stainless-steel bracelet.

Following the design of the Railmaster’s modern facelift, the 40mm brushed symmetrical case is made from stainless steel and features a conical crown and a wave-edged caseback with a NAIAD LOCK system to keep the wording in perfect position.

The new design incorporates a Master Chronometer Calibre 8806 which is 15 times more resistant than the original Railmaster models.

Certified at the industry’s highest standard by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), all Master Chronometer models are able to withstand magnetism of 15,000 gauss.
