Testing the Replica Omega Seamaster Railmaster

While it never flew to the moon or kept time on 007’s wrist, the Omega Railmaster is a practical, straightforward watch to wear on the job. In this feature from the WatchTime archives, we give it a thorough once-over.

Originally designed for people who work near electric fields, today’s Replica Omega Seamaster Railmaster is a style-confident timepiece with a modern Master Chronometer movement. 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.

When the Railmaster debuted in 1957, it was the latest expression of a longstanding relationship between Omega and the railroads. Omega first delivered pocketwatches to railroad companies in 1895. The Railmaster was the first wristwatch designed specifically for railroad employees, scientists, electricians and technicians who worked in close proximity to strong electric currents. Early Railmaster watches were equipped with a special double case that could protect the movement against the adverse effects of electrical fields up to an intensity of 1,000 gauss.

When a revised edition of Omega’s classic was launched in 2003, the model was already equipped with a modern co-axial caliber that had been developed in the late 1990s. This variation is no longer produced, but the Railmaster returned in a serially manufactured anniversary edition in 2017. It revived the historical design of the original model from 1957 and spiced up the familiar styling with several nuances. Encasing Omega’s self-winding manufacture Caliber 8806, the model had a vintage look juxtaposed with modern Master Chronometer technology, which protects watch movements from magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. The Railmaster thereby continues a story that began more than 120 years ago.

Unlike both the original and the limited-edition anniversary model, the dial of the serially produced Railmaster, our test watch, is vertically brushed rather than smooth, thus adding a modern touch to the watch’s face. Nostalgia, on the other hand, is embodied by the aptly named “railway-style” minutes circle, which, incidentally, consisted of elongated index strokes on the original model. By contrast, a more modern impression is made by the numerals 3, 6, 9 and 12, which are present on all models, but printed in different typefaces.

The crosshairs in the center of the dial were understood as a symbol of precision, which the contemporary Railmaster 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 Railmaster has a four-year warranty.

Like many other Omega Replica Watches 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 (see our recent test of Caliber 8900 in the Seamaster Planet Ocean), but it keeps time very well. Our timing machine detected only very minor rate deviations among the individual positions. And our empirical test proved that this watch performs better on a wrist than on the timing machine.

Caliber 8806 has been a three-handed movement in Omega’s Master Chronometer repertoire since 2017. It has essentially the same construction as Caliber 8800, which debuted in 2016. But unlike the 8800, Caliber 8806 doesn’t support a date display. This handsome movement is unfortunately concealed behind the solid metal back of the Railmaster’s case, which has an undulating angular design and is embossed with an image of a seahorse. The seahorse and the lettering on the back always appear in their correct positions thanks to the new, patented Naiad Lock system: this innovation is a kind of bayonet connection for the caseback, which Omega plans to gradually install in all its new models as a replacement for conventional screw-in casebacks.

The case is 40 mm in diameter and resists water pressure to 150 meters (15 bar). The Naiad Lock system ensures that the back always fits exactly, which also contributes to its aesthetic appeal. With a large honeycomb pattern and monumental-looking lettering and engravings, the back also contributes to this watch’s “workhorse” impression, which is further reinforced by the textile strap on the model that we tested. A leather lining on the underside of the strap enhances its comfort on the wrist, while the herringbone pattern of the fabric and the metal grommets around the holes in the tongue recall the robust quality of work clothes.

The Omega Railmaster is inarguably a sturdy fellow. Although its design isn’t especially sophisticated or innovative, this watch has stood the test of time and has proven itself to be a practical, reliable and understated, but still elegant companion that you can enjoy wearing both at work and after the workday is over.

Hublot Replica Introduces Third Collab with Save Our Rhino Africa via Big Bang Unico SORAI

Hublot Replica recently introduced its third collaboration with Save Our Rhino Africa India (SORAI), an organization working to protect rhinos threatened with extinction from poachers. SORAI was founded by Hublot brand ambassador Kevin Pietersen, and the partnership naturally took shape with its first collaborative timepiece released in 2019, and its second in 2021. The new Big Bang Unico SORAI uses grey and sunset colors for its design, a palette evocative of the heightened danger rhinos face as the night falls.

Hublot opts for a zirconium-based ceramic case and bezel, resulting in a robust and almost entirely scratch-resistant exterior. The grey case and bezel are alternatively microblasted and polished to give the luxury replica watches a rugged, yet refined, appearance. Measuring 44mm in diameter, the warm-toned case also offers 100 meters of water resistance.

The dial features a skeletonized design made from the same grey tone as the surrounding bezel and case. The indices stand out atop of the dial and are colored in a gradient of yellow, orange, red, purple, and all of the shades in between. At 9 o’clock is a sub-dial with a bold orange rhinoceros applique, emblematic of the partnership as well as the sunset colors on the remainder of the dial. The seconds hand ticks with the Hublot “H” logo at its end, just underneath a sapphire crystal which encloses the entire dial and is printed with the Hublot logo as well.

Ticking inside the watch is the HUB1280 UNICO caliber, a self-winding chronograph flyback movement featuring a column wheel. Thanks to a host of technical optimizations via manufacture, the mechanism offers a flatter automatic winding system than its predecessors, resulting in a thinner and cleaner look. The manufacture caliber also offers a power reserve of 72 hours and is visible via exhibition caseback, which is engraved with the SORAI logo.

Pricing for the Replica Hublot Big Bang Unico SORAI is marked at $24,100 and production is limited to 100 pieces. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each watch will go to SORAI. Each watch is presented on a grey fabric strap with an additional black rubber strap with black, orange, and purple camouflage also included.

Replica Breitling Updates the Avenger Collection, Going Upmarket with Downsized Cases

Just announced by Breitling Replica is the newly refreshed Avenger collection that updates the entire line consisting of chronograph, GMT, and automatic models. Introduced over two decades ago as a more accessible and sporty alternative to the Chronomat, the Avenger has become a staple of Breitling’s lineup with its bold modern pilot watch style. Of course, one of the most common complaints among enthusiasts has been how large the case sizes are with the previous generation starting at 43mm and going all the way up to 48mm. Well, those detractors will be happy with this updated collection which shrinks the case sizes down substantially alongside new dials and an in-house movement for the chronograph.

The Avenger Chronograph has gone from being offered in 43, 45, and 48mm cases to a uniform 44mm across the board. Measuring 44mm wide and 15.2mm thick with a 53mm lug-to-lug height (300m of water resistance), the chronograph is now outfitted with the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 movement replacing the old Valjoux 7750. This COSC-certified in-house movement operates at 28,800 vph with a 70-hour power reserve and boasts a column-wheel and vertical clutch. The Caliber 01 allows for the new iteration to have chronograph sub-dials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock rather than 6, 9, and 12 o’clock which most people prefer. The date window is removed altogether and the vintage-style B Breitling logo replaces the winged logo that seems to have phased out by all but the Professional line. 

Breitling Avenger B01 Chronograph 44_CMYK

The core Avenger Chronograph models come in a steel case in either black, blue, green, and sand-colored dials on a matching strap or steel bracelet. I’m glad to see Breitling also chose to update the always-cool Night Mission version which is done in a black ceramic case with either black carbon or yellow dial.

The Avenger Automatic GMT 44 also shrinks the case down a bit down from the previous 45mm iteration. Measuring 44m wide and 12mm thick with a 53mm lug-to-lug height (300 m of water resistance), the GMT largely retains the previous aesthetic albeit with the B logo rather than the wings. Still powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 32 (essentially an ETA 2893), it operates at 28,800 vph with a 42-hour power reserve. 

Breitling Avenger Automatic 42_Ref. A17328101B1A1_CMYK

Finally, there is the new base Avenger Automatic 42. Previously offered in 43 or 45mm versions it is now only available in 42mm which is quite a universal fit for this type of sport watch. Done in steel, the Avenger Automatic 42 measures 42mm wide and 12.15mm thick with a 51.21mm lug-to-lug height (also with 300 m of water resistance). It is still outfitted with the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17 (ETA 2824) that operates at 28,800 vph with a 38-hour power reserve. Again, the dial is not changed much with the exception of the Breitling logo. It is offered in black, blue, and green dial options with matching straps or steel bracelet.

IWC Schaffhausen Unveils Two Special Edition Big Pilot’s Watches Inspired By The G-Class

Maximum robustness and performance, a utilitarian heritage and design cues that have proved stronger than time: these characteristics are at the root of the sustained success and popularity of the G-Class from Mercedes-Benz and the Big Pilot’s Watch from IWC Schaffhausen.

While echoing signature G-Class design features such as the headlights or the spare wheel cover, they are both made from extremely robust and resilient case materials. One features a case and crown of 18-carat Armor Gold®; the second is IWC’s first timepiece with a ceramic matrix composite (CMC) case.

The Big Pilot’s Watch from IWC Schaffhausen and the G-Class from Mercedes-Benz share a similar history and are deeply rooted in a utilitarian legacy. Both were initially developed to meet purely functional criteria – one to be easy to read and highly robust, the other to offer uncompromising offroad capabilities. Over the years, they have retained their utilitarian beginnings and evolved into modern design icons at the same time. After nearly 20 years of partnership with Mercedes-AMG, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer now celebrates these icons with two striking special editions of the Big Pilot’s Watch.

The Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63 (Ref. IW501201) boasts a case and crown made of 18-carat Armor Gold®, a black dial and a black rubber strap with microfibre inlay. The black and gold colour code is inspired by the exterior paintwork and interior finishing of the recently launched Mercedes-AMG G 63 “Grand Edition”. Armor Gold® is an innovative alloy that elevates the hardness values of gold to a whole new level and makes this comparatively soft, precious metal much more resistant to external influences. Thanks to an improved microstructure, this special alloy is significantly harder and more wear-resistant than conventional 5N gold. The combination of sand-blasted surfaces and polished edges lends this Big Pilot’s Watch a classy, contemporary character.

The Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63 (Ref. IW506201) is the first IWC timepiece to feature a ceramic matrix composite (CMC) case, engineered in close collaboration with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Unlike conventional carbon fibre-reinforced polymers, the fibres of this composite material are embedded in a matrix of ceramic rather than polymer. Therefore, CMC components are extremely damage-tolerant. Because they are also insensitive to thermal shocks, they are the material of choice for applications with extremely high requirements in terms of lightness, strength, and temperature resistance – from aerospace to the manufacturing of brake discs for sports and luxury cars.

Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63

A highly complex manufacturing process

The starting point for manufacturing a CMC watch case is a conventional carbon-fibre reinforced polymer. In a heat treatment called pyrolysis, lasting several days, the polymer matrix is converted to carbon, leaving behind a dense weave of fibres embedded in a porous carbon matrix. Subsequently, silicon crystals are placed on top of the component, and everything is heated in an oven. During this so-called siliconisation, silicon is pulled into the cavities and chemically reacts with the carbon, forming a new matrix made of silicon carbide ceramic.

After finishing with diamond tools, the CMC cases exhibit a matte black colour and a unique structure determined by the fibres, making each piece truly unique.

“The manufacturing process for this lightweight and strong material is extremely complex. To achieve perfect quality, we had to overcome countless challenges – from selecting the right raw materials for the fibres and the matrix to defining the exact parameters for the different steps of the process. With its first CMC watch case, IWC Replica again demonstrates its expertise in engineering advanced material solutions,” explains Lorenz Brunner, Department Manager Research and Innovation at IWC Schaffhausen.

Revisiting signature G-Class design cues 

In addition to the Big Pilot’s characteristic power reserve display at 3 o’clock, both new editions feature a small second counter at 9 o’clock. The opposing subdials with external white rings imitate the typical headlights on the front side of the G-Class. The black dials are embossed with a relief-like technical structure inspired by the air intakes of Mercedes-AMG performance cars. Unlike the classic Big Pilot’s Watch, which has printed numerals and indices, these special editions feature appliques that have been PVD-coated in black and filled with luminous material.

Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63

High-end IWC manufactured movement inside 

Both versions of the Big Pilot’s Cheap Replica Watches AMG G 63 are powered by the IWC-manufactured 52010 calibre, a highly robust and precise automatic movement. Parts of the winding system that are subject to particularly high stress are manufactured from virtually wear-free zirconium oxide ceramic. Developed by IWC’s former Technical Director Albert Pellaton during the 1940s, the ingenious self-winding mechanism uses even the smallest movements of the rotor in both directions to build up a power reserve of seven days in two barrels. The movements are visible through tinted sapphire glass back, which feature a Mercedes-Benz star and are reminiscent of the spare wheel cover on the backside of the G-Class.

The Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63 editions in 18-carat Armor Gold® and in CMC are available through IWC boutiques or online at IWC.com. In addition, the timepieces are eligible for registration under the My IWC care program, benefitting from a 6-year extension to the standard 2-year International Limited Warranty.

The new Rolex that won’t get “left” behind!

Not only left-handers will be scrambling for this version of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II

Ask a southpaw watch-wearer what will make them happy and they’ll tell you: move the crown to the left side of the case. This way, they can wear their watch on their right wrist – the one they theoretically use less – and use their dominant hand to wind. Not a big ask, but not easy to find, either, the reckoning being that the market – 8% of the world’s population is left-handed – is too small to warrant development of a specific model.

Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II

Oh happy day! Rolex is making up for years of contorted winding with an entirely unexpected and highly desirable Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II with the crown at 9 o’clock. The brand has even upped the rarity stakes by equipping this destro watch with a black and green Cerachrom bezel insert: a first for this model.

Past examples
Rolex already released Datejusts for left-handers in the 1950s, as well as ten Submariner 1680 models in gold, in the late 1970s. Next came a Sea Dweller 16660 with its crown on the left side, made in 1987 for Comex (Compagnie Maritime d’Expertise). A previous collaboration produced the Sea Dweller in 1967, the left-handed version of which is an absolute Grail watch for collectors.

There’s a reason why the history of fake luxury watches with left-side crowns is tied in with diving. Before electronic dive computers made mechanical dive watches superfluous to needs, divers would wear their watch on their right wrist, and keep their left wrist for a depth meter or a compass. Hence watches with their crown at 9 o’clock still make regular appearances at brands, such as Panerai, that have strong associations with diving.

Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II

Especially for left-handers
Even though the Oyster Perpetual Rolex replica GMT-Master II has an Oyster case – water-resistant to 100 metres –, this new release isn’t a tribute to the underwater world. Instead, Rolex is focusing on travel with the GMT function.

The 24-hour scale on the rotating bezel displays the time in a second time zone. The green ceramic half corresponds to daytime hours while the black ceramic represents night-time hours. Lefties can rejoice in the fact that this is the first time this colour combination has been used on this model.

The Perpetual 3285 movement has been slightly modified in order to move the crown and the “cyclops” date window to 9 o’clock. This meant adapting Rolex’s Superlative Chronometer testing procedure. But the result was worth it.

(If you’re right-handed and feel you need to justify your desire to own a rare watch, as a purist of watch ergonomics, you can always claim you don’t like the feel of the crown against your left hand).
