In 2017, Omega replica watches celebrated the 60th anniversary of its iconic 1957 trilogy, which included three limited-edition watches in honor of Speedmaster, Seamaster 300 and Railmaster. Thanks to the success of the launch, Railmaster is once again added to the brand’s core series. Last night, we got word that omega was updating its famous timepiece with a cowboy look in recognition of the watch’s history as an industrial companion.
By offering the new Railmaster a vertical pull, “blue jeans” style dial and options paired with a real denim band, omega is hoping to appeal to the nostalgic craving of those who yearn for America. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen watch brands use denim in watches; Hublot has released many watches with real denim dial and five-digit price tags, but, for Railmaster, AAA fake Omega watches has a historical cache (or “gene”, pun intended) to support its experiment.
In addition to the dial and strap, Omega described the “beige” lollipop second hand and minute track as reminders of colored stitches on jeans. In fact, the second hand is different in tone from the previous Railmaster release, and the minute track is the same as the previous version, which is good because it’s already railway-style, keeping the watch themed. Other design details from the larger Railmaster series include the dash at the center of the dial, the use of Numbers 3,6,9 and 12, and the conical crown. One option that stands out from last year’s watch is the ever-controversial artificial elderly. This time,Luxury Omega replica watches sale uses the light gray super-luminova app on the embedded timelines and stainless steel Pointers.
In addition to the front denim band with leather at the bottom, there are stainless steel watch chains to choose from. Both options look attractive enough that it comes down to how much denim you actually need on your watch, which, frankly, isn’t the most typical determinant of watch purchases. This stainless steel watch has a diameter of 40 mm and uses a wavy underlid and NAIAD LOCK system. Powering the tables is a METAS certified Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, with a whopping 15,000 gauss diamagnetic.
Overall, it’s a purely fun Omega replica watches swiss movement. I found the navy blue dial drawn vertically complemented with subtle grey Numbers and hands and a stainless steel case. The denim band is attractive as a concept, but I think it’s a bit too much with similar dial colors. As a whole, Railmaster is underrated and one of my favorite versions of 2017, so it’s nice to see Omega continue to try dialing changes.
