The Omega Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer was one of the coolest releases of 2017 (and it was also one of the most underrated—that was the year Omega also released their 1957 Trilogy). The new Railmaster is a legitimate successor to its namesake, boasting Omega’s 8806 Co-Axial caliber, which is a Master Chronometer-certified movement with a whopping anti-magnetic rating of 15,000 gauss. It’s also a damn fine looking watch. We reviewed the Railmaster last year, so click here if you want to learn more about it.
One of the biggest complaints people had about this watch was, unsurprisingly, the color of the lume. Omega went with a vintage-toned lume, which is intended to ape aged tritium. I, for one, saw no problem with its use here. I quite liked the way the warmer lume played against the cooler metallic dial, but to each his own.
It looks like the good folks over at Omega may have been listening to their critics with the latest extension of the Railmaster line. For 2018, Omega is releasing the Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer “Denim.” Yes, you read that right—denim. But wait, don’t throw your hands up just yet. The actual watch is pretty darn cool.
