The Omega Railmaster ref. CK 2914 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 broad arrow hands with almost no luminous material left (radium).
This particular Railmaster is a very rare version made for the Pakistan Air Force and has Seamaster (without 300) printed on the dial, which was unique to the Railmaster made for P.A.F.
The case back has a P.A.F. engraving as well as on the bridge of the Cal. 284 movement, as opposed to the later versions with engraved seahorse logo and inscription.
The movement of the Railmaster is encased in a mu-metal cage protecting the movement to 1000 Gauss. It also retains its original and rarely seen NAIAD crown.
