Omega 'Railmaster' Co-Axial Master Chronometer

Omega ‘Railmaster’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer

In 1957 Omega released its very first ‘Railmaster’ model.

60 years later the new Omega ‘Railmaster’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer follows the same simple and elegant design traits of the original, but with updated touches of style and one of the best mechanical movements available.

I would esteem that for Omega collectors and fans, this rerelease signals a long-awaited and exciting moment …

Have a look and let me know what you think ….

This was a very good and wise decision as we all know today.

Meanwhile Omega offers 11 certified movements in 20 executions manufactured as anti-antimagnetic Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibres.
