I have been digging deep on 1960s Railmasters ever since we offered the ref. 2914-1 from 1957 a few months back. Seeing that watch in the metal really changed my view on this whole run of Railmasters. From the 38mm case to the slightly sunken-into-the-dial lume plots and overall stout feel, there are few watches from the 1960s that feel as well made as US luxury replica Omega Railmaster watches. So why am I talking about a Railmaster in a description of this “Seamaster” for the Pakistan Air Force? Rumored to be due to the British controlling the railroads in Pakistan, the P.A.F. requested that “Seamaster” replace “Railmaster” on the dial of these specially ordered military Omega fake watches for sale.
Beyond the quirky dial branding, I am taken by the worn and used look of this particular example. P.A.F. AAA top Omega Seamaster replica watches are known to the vintage market, and the slightly smaller Seamaster 30 platform with these ref. 135.004-63 “Railmasters” are the largest and most collectible. The ref. 135.004-63 for the P.A.F is believed to have been produced in two batches, one delivered with earlier broad arrow-style hands and the other, like the one we have here, fitted with later pencil hands. To me, while the broad arrow set is immediately recognizable as cheap Omega copy watches, these pencil hands play much more into the military watch provenance of a P.A.F. watch as there is much, much more luminous material.
The Swiss made Omega replica watches we have today wears its heart on its sleeve, leaving little to the imagination in terms of how hard it was worn over the last 50 years. I never say this as we have some of the best watch photographers working on our photos, but the photos of this watch just do not do it justice. No photo would. There is an aspect of this best super clone Omega Seamaster watches that you just have to experience in the metal – I am confident that any buyer would be impressed upon delivery.
