Introduced at BaselWorld 2003, the Aqua Terra Railmaster is a tribute to the Railmaster of the late fifties. The original OMEGA Railmaster was first launched in 1957 as the successor to a watch created for the British Royal Air Force in 1953. Designed specially for scientists, technicians, electricians and railway workers, or anyone else working in or around powerful electric currents, it had a special double antimagnetic case to protect the watch movement from the harmful effects of these electrical fields. The contemporary Railmaster retains the exterior look of the original, with a matt black dial bearing four luminous Arabic numerals at the quarter hours together with luminous triangular hour markers and central Railmaster inscription. The facetted Dauphine-style hands (with arrowhead minute hand) also have luminous inserts, ensuring excellent legibility in all light conditions. A more up-to-date domed, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal kept in place by the Aqua Terra’s simple polished stainless steel bezel rounds off the pure lines of the watch. The interior of the new Railmaster houses the OMEGA calibre 2403 Co-Axial movement. This is self-winding and chronometer certified by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute). It has a power reserve of 44 hours and an intricate finish of Geneva wave décor and circular graining with gold-plated engravings. The innovative technology of the OMEGA Co-Axial Escapement reduces friction in the watch’s drive train and thus offers better long-term accuracy. The watch has a screw-in crown and case back that ensure water resistance to 150 metres, the latter fitted with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that guarantees a view of the watch’s unique movement.
This example is the much sought after 39mm model. Deemed the one to have, and as a result they very rarely come up for sale. This is a superb example with the original case finishes showing little sign of use and unmarked Sapphire crystals front and back. The watch is a full set with both boxes, International Warranty card, Chronometer Certificate (card) and Pictogram card, and original purchase receipt.
