We just got our hands on this relatively uncommon and lovely Railmaster. Heres what we think about it.
The first thing you'll notice about this watch is the retro look. The arabic numberals, matte black dial and pointy indices harken all the way back to the Seamaster 300. It's a thoroughly modern watch though with a 39mm case size, a display caseback and a deployant strap
Inside is a variant of the 2500 co-axial movement Omega is moving all of it's watches to. This watch is also interesting in that it marks one of the first moves into an "anti-magnetic" movement that years later is now advertised as the "Master Co-Axial"
We're partial to straps here on Watch Vault NYC, and comfort and ease of adjustment of the deployant makes this an easy daily wear for us.
We're drawn to the uniqueness of this watch, and the transitory nature of the movement. We suspect this will be a watch that becomes rarer and even more valuable down the line because of this, and on top of the limited number of years the watch was produced.
