In 2017, the famous Swiss watch brand Omega launched a new version of the Ironmaster watch using the Co-Axial movement. With its high cost performance and retro elegant appearance, it has been recognized by many watch enthusiasts. This watch is also the brand’s first glorious return after the phasing out of the Ironmaster in 2007 and 2008. As an updated product, in addition to retaining the traditional design of many Ironmaster watches, it also adds a retro crosshair and a lollipop second hand in the middle of the dial, and is equipped with an anti-magnetic 15,000 Gaussian coaxial coaxial movement. Classic design combined with modern technology. The public price of less than 40,000 also makes it one of the most competitive and cost-effective watches. Recently, we saw this watch when we visited the Omega flagship store in Beijing Oriental Plaza. let’s see it together:
In 1957, Omega released the first Ironmaster watch (CK 2914). This watch was originally designed for railway workers and other professionals who are troubled by magnetic fields. This watch can withstand a magnetic field of up to 1,000 Gauss, far exceeding the antimagnetic level of other watches at the time, providing the wearer with more accurate timekeeping services. The 2017 version of Ironmaster continued this feature. Although it does not have a magnetically shielded soft case, it is equipped with the 8806 Coaxial Zhizheng Observatory movement, which can withstand a strong magnetic field of up to 15,000 Gauss, reproducing classic and outstanding representative functions.
The appearance is not fancy, as always, the simple appearance design is full of quality. The 40mm stainless steel case is frosted to reduce the impact of accidental scratches on the appearance of the watch.
The stainless steel crown is located on one side of the watch and is engraved with the brand ‘Ω’ logo pattern, showing the unique charm of Omega. The unique non-slip design makes the crown feel first-class and facilitates debugging operations.
The vertical frosted black dial, the ‘orbital’ minute circle, the triangular time scale echoes the central three hands, making the time indication more intuitive. The integration of Super-LumiNova’s luminous coating allows the watch to clearly display the time at night, which is very convenient. The central engraving symbolizes the precise ‘crosshair’, and the classic beige ‘Railmaster’ logo is printed below, showing a retro and unique classic beauty.
The back of the case uses a corrugated edge design, and the brand’s unique Naiad lock technology ensures that the engraved lettering on the back of the case remains neat and elegant. The embossed pattern of Omega’s famous hippocampal badge is beautiful and representative. Equipped with the 8806 Co-Axial Observatory movement, in addition to anti-magnetic technology, it has also passed the industry’s high standard certification approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), showing outstanding quality.
With a frosted stainless steel bracelet and a folding buckle engraved with the Omega logo, it is full of rich sports atmosphere.
