Rubber B has become well-known as a highly respected crafter of custom rubber watch bands for timepieces from some of the most respected watchmakers in the field, including such brands as Patek Philippe, IWC, and Breitling. Rubber B has a variety of straps in different colors and styles in our product portfolio that are appropriate for both business/formal wear and more casual situations. In this blog post, we are going to review the history of Omega, and the Omega Seamaster Railmaster 39mm 2503.52.00. 

Omega Seamaster Railmaster History

The Omega Railmaster was first introduced in 1957 alongside its two siblings the Omega Seamaster and Omega Speedmaster. The Omega Railmaster was designed specifically for engineers, scientists, and railway workers. The movement inside the Omega Railmaster features a faraday case – an enclosure used to block magnetic fields – that protect the timepiece against magnetism which helps to maintain accuracy.

In 1963, only six years after the Omega Railmaster was released, Omega stopped the production of the Railmaster due to its lack of popularity. In 2003, the Omega Railmaster was reintroduced to the public. This Omega Railmaster now featured an Aquaterra-style case and included an exhibition case back. However, in 2012 the Omega Railmaster was once again halted in production and was still out-weighed in popularity by the Omega Seamaster and Speedmaster.

In 2017, the Omega Railmaster was released again to the public as a part of a trilogy pack by Omega that included the Seamaster 300 and Speedmaster. The only difference in design from the 1957 versions of these Omegas is that these versions include upgraded materials and modern technology.

This timepiece is reliable by including a high level of efficiency and low maintenance. The solid case back was reintroduced as a nod to the original 1958 version as a reminder that the Omega Seamaster Railmaster 39mm 2503.52.00 was intended for a specific purpose: to be highly tolerant to magnetic fields. There is an impressive combination of angles and curves within the design of the dial of the Omega Seamaster Railmaster 39mm 2503.52.00. The Omega Seamaster Railmaster 39mm 2503.52.00 could be considered as an alternative to the Rolex Explorer.
