The 1957 Trilogy Speedmaster ‘57 Chronograph uses an unusual movement, which is the Omega 1861. It’s the popular manual-winding chronograph movement, which is based on the legendary movement that was used to conquer the moon. Also, instead of using a sapphire crystal, they used a hesalite crystal to provide a much more durable front protection.
Omega Seamaster Railmaster Co-axial Master Chronometer 38mm The 1957 Trilogy “Steel on Steel.”
To complete the 1957 Trilogy here’s the Seamaster Railmaster Co-axial Chronometer 38mm. This steel on steel variant of the Railmaster offers a very subtle yet expensive look. The Railmaster is the most uncomplicated luxury watch you can ever have if you don’t like to show the world that you’re wearing one of the 1957 trilogy luxury watches.
The Seamaster Railmaster uses an Omega 8806, a self-winding movement accompanied by a unique co-axial escapement. This particular timepiece can survive for at least 55 hours, which is pretty impressive for a watch such as this. It’s also water-resistant of up to 6 bar or 60 meters, which is also pretty average.
Omega decided to use a sapphire crystal on its front for this variant instead of using a Hesalite crystal. Please don’t underestimate the reliability and durability of a sapphire crystal because, for generations, Omega has been using a sapphire crystal for all of its luxury watches. This just proves that it’s pretty reliable and durable.
If you’re looking for excellent precision, the Seamaster Railmaster is a Master Chronometer Certified, which means that it went through several days of examination or test just to see how precise it is. You’ll also love the anti-magnetic capabilities of this watch that reaches 15,000 gausses.
Omega has a great history of creating the best Swiss that watches people can put their hands on. These top three watches don’t have the best style or design if you compare them to other Omega watches. However, when it comes to luxury watches, style and design aren’t always the critical factor; the story and history make a watch stand at the top.
