Launched in 1957 alongside the Speedmaster and the Seamaster, the Railmaster was Omega's answer to the anti-magnetic watches produced by IWC and Rolex. The Railmaster's production ceased in 1963 and this short period of production was possibly due to a bad reputation given the history of colonization. Anyway, this name remained in the database of Omega and in recent years it was reused for some modern reinterpretation such as the here offered Railmaster XXL reference Produced in a limited series of 157 examples in 2007 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Railmaster launch, its three-body pink gold case with inclined bezel, transparent screwed-down case back and lyre lugs is exceptionally well preserved. The black dial has dart indexes, luminous Arabic quarters, outer minute divisions, subsidiary seconds dial and luminous pink gold dauphine hour hand, arrow for the minutes. Furthermore, the watch also comes with its original box, original papers, booklet and tag.
