1960 Omega Railmaster (Ref. 2914-6) "Lollipop"
There’s no lack of love for vintage Omega these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear something unique! Omega’s most popular watches have always struck a balance between handsome design and field-proven functionality. The Railmaster -- which was introduced in 1957 -- is a rare bird made to be used by scientists or anyone working in close proximity to strong electrical fields and magnetism. The incorporation of a thicker dial and a Faraday cage in its design made the Railmaster a watch that could be depended upon to work accurately by people that truly relied on their watches as an important part of their tool kit. This example of a Railmaster Ref. 2914-6 was made in 1960, is in absolutely fantastic condition, and features a highly desirable “lollipop” sweep seconds hand.
