PostSubject: Omega's new Railmaster Master Chronometer   Fri Dec 08, 2017 1:43 pm

Have you guys checked out Omega's newest Railmaster by chance?

The original watch was created for railway staff who were close to electrical
fields, and had magnaetc resistance of up to 1,000 gauss at the time. Now
the new Railmaster can withstand magnetic fields all the way up to 15,000
gauss.

Just a few of the many other details look to include a 40mm brushed stainless
steel case, 150m WR, conical crown, vertically brushed gray, or black dials,
markers, hands, and "lollipop" seconds hand with "vintage" Super-Luminova,
"crosshair" markings, railway minute track, and choice of stainless steel bracelet,
two-tone textile strap, or brown leather NATO. With the anti-magnetic Master
Chronometer Calibre 8806 keeping things moving behind Seahorse medallion
embossed case-back.

Have a few pictures for you here...













Saw this over at Time and Watches guys...

Nice but not really a stand out for $5K. I actually like the older one better.

You are right as usual Gary ! Guess the Omega name/badge really inflates the pricing.
Imagine if these were somewhere in between, let's say for fun.. $899, to maybe $2500 at the
very highest. That would be neat right?! Very Happy Would definitely make the watch attractive to a lot
more people in the end imho too.

Oh, and you're right about the older ones too honestly. Always is hard to beat classic, or just
previous models.
