Denim is our favourite fabric of them all! This Omega watch in casual chic style has all the aesthetic and technical assets you could wish for.
From David Bowie to Lana Del Rey, the famous blue material has inspired large numbers of artists. Once it was a robust fabric loved by workers and farmers, and now it is a vital element in male and female wardrobes, available in all shapes and sizes and to be combined with a range of styles for all occasions. From the casual garment to the chic accessory there was only a small step, and now that step has been taken with the new blue denim Railmaster. The dial recalls the colour and texture of the famous material, resulting from a vertically brushed effect. And to add to the model’s casual chic look, the 40mm-wide case is combined with a NATO strap made of real blue denim with brown leather loops matching the lining.
You can also find all the assets that make the Railmaster such an attractive watch. The time data include the essential elements in a very readable way. The hands and hour markers are coated in light grey Super-LumiNova®. A central “lollipop” second hand shows that the COSC-certified calibre Master Chronometer 8806 is working correctly. Its orange colour, recalling the stitching on jeans, also adds dynamism. The self-winding movement can resist magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss, perpetuating the spirit of the original model from 1957, which already stood out through its resistance to electromagnetic waves.
It’s worth noting that Omega has also made a version with a steel strap.
