Finally, the reason that I rushed right home today to tell you about this new Railmaster collection is this: you can buy the watch you see above with either the black or silver dial for $4,900 on a strap. On a bracelet? $5,100. Like I said, you’re gonna like these. Sure, the dial is printed instead of applied, the crown doesn’t screw down, and the caseback is closed, but who cares? This watch has it where it counts and that is with a good looking dial, nice case size, and fantastic in-house movement. This watch, to me, is aimed squarely at Rolex’s excellent Oyster Perpetual 39mm (which retails for $5,700) and the even more expensive Explorer I. And, if you like old watches, the printed dial, applied lume, and closed caseback might even be selling points. After visiting Omega today, it’s clear to me they are coming hard, and this collection offering this quality at this price point? You simply can’t argue with.
Now is the point where I’d typically tell you to go read more about this but as I said, this watch doesn’t exist online yet. More info to come as we get it.
