Notes

Originally specially designed for the RAF in 1953, the OMEGA Railmaster was produced for the general public in 1957 and designed for those that work in the presence of powerful electric fields such as scientists, technicians and electricians.
Its anti-magnetic properties came from the inner cap fitted across the movement made from Armco pure iron and the 1mm thick dial (standard dials are 0.4 mm thick) made of mumetal – or soft iron – providing a shield against magnetic fields up to 900 oersted.
