OMEGA Trilogy 1957 Review & Comparison
The Omega Railmaster is the first. It was originally a pocketwatch until 1957, when it became a wristwatch to aid trains in keeping time and avoiding train crashes. The 60th anniversary Railmaster was a different story. Its incredible precision made it a popular choice. Original Railmaster powered by the Caliber 284 30T2-based motor. It came with the steel Omega 7077 bracelet and broad arrow hands.
Omega Speedmaster, which was first introduced in 1957 and became the first watch to orbit the moon in 1969. Since then, the Speedmaster has been arguably the most famous chronograph ever made. Nearly every collector owns one, and many affectionately call it “Speedy”.
We also have the Omega Seamaster300, which was worn by Mi6 agent 007 every James Bond movie since 1997’s Goldeneye. This film marked Pierce Brosnan’s first appearance as the legendary super spy. Since then, it was seen on Daniel Craig’s wrist (pictured below with the Seamaster 007 Limited Edition which has the same broad arrow fingers). Craig is also an Omega brand ambassador since 2010.
These three Omega limited edition 1957 Trilogy watches are so popular. It’s the meticulous attention paid to creating three watches that are so similar to the originals. Omega used the original taller, thinner Omega logo as well as the 1957 font for the Omega series logo font and wordmark on the dial. These three series have grown exponentially over the past 60 years. When people think about Omega, the Seamaster and Speedmaster series are literally archetypal.
Petros Protopapas (curator of the Omega Museum) stated that Omega had their product team collaborate with the museum to create these classic masterpieces. They used the most recent technology, including computer-assistedtomography (CAT scans), which can take x-rays without the need to open the watch.
Take a look at these three Omega 1957 Trilogy watches for the 60th anniversary and compare them with the CT scans of original watches to its right.
1957 Omega Railmaster Review
You can see that the scanners were able, as you can clearly see from the images, to separate the layers of crystal, movement, and caliber.
Since the original Railmaster, reference number CK2914, Omega has made numerous mechanical improvements. The new 1957 Railmaster is powered by the Omega 8806 caliber – Automatic/Self-Winding movement.
This one is superior to the original 30T2-based calibers, the 284, 285 or 286 calibers. This movement is now known as the Master Co-Axial Chronometer. This designation means that the watch is now a METAS approved Master Chronometer. It was obtained after enduring a great deal of testing for accuracy as well as many other factors.
It is 15 times more resistant than the CK2914 to magnetic interference. The 1957 original Railmaster (pictured here), was only capable of enduring magnetic fields between 900 to 1,000 Gauss. The New Omega 1957 Railmaster Limited Edition can withstand up to 15,000 Gauss.
The Omega Co-Axial escapement, which can be found in the limited edition, will allow for longer periods between services and a 4-year warranty.
