The Omega Railmaster ref. CK 2914, the predecessor to the 135.004, was launched in 1957 and designed for professionals such as scientists, technicians and electricians working within close distance of powerful electric currents. This antimagnetic watch has a special 1mm (instead of 0.4mm) thick mat black dial, with luminous hour markers and several versions of hands, from broad arrow to dauphine, with luminous material (radium). The particularity of this model is also that the movement of the Railmaster is encased in a mu-metal cage protecting the movement to 1000 Gauss.
