Omega Railmaster Replica is a practical, straightforward watch to wear on the job.Its indexes and baton-shaped hour and minutes hands are coated with Super-LumiNova that has a faux-patina color during the day. But when darkness falls, these components glow with a beautiful azure luminescence, while a bright dot leisurely passes the points of the dial’s triangular hour markings. This “lollipop” seconds hand with its luminous disk alludes to the way the seconds are shown on the clocks in Swiss railway stations and underscores the Railmaster’s affiliation with railroading.
The crosshairs in the center of the dial were understood as a symbol of precision, which the contemporary Omega Replica UK reliably achieves thanks to Master Chronometer Caliber 8806. A COSC certificate proves that this caliber’s timekeeping upholds the official chronometer standard.
A second certificate – this one issued by METAS (the Swiss national metrology institute) – affirms that the Railmaster exceeds the COSC’s quality level and, as a tested Master Chronometer, provides protection against magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. The Grade One Replica Watch has a four-year warranty.
Like many other Omega Replica movements today, Caliber 8806 achieves the current highest standards of precision, rate accuracy and resistance to magnetic fields. It doesn’t run quite as perfectly as other Master Chronometers that we’ve tested in the past, but it keeps time very well.
