Our Omega Photos from Baselworld 2018!

Check out our Omega Baselworld pre-order page here to learn more about individual models.

One of the most interesting, yet least publicized, new models is this new blue Railmaster.

The new SMPs are my favorite new Omegas, however.

Supposedly there's a smaller ceramic case PO. Is that correct? I didn't see it.

I like the blue railmaster the most. Don't like the new wave dials but I do like the grey dial version with blue bezel. I think the implied indices really pop against the dial.

I don’t like those Aqua Terra hands.

I don’t see a blue Railmaster..?

I'm not familiar with it (yet), but when Dan and Anna get back this week I'll ask them about it.

There are a lot of Omegas that didn't make their webpage for some reason basically only exist in Basel photos.

Here's a "stock" photo of it, although be advised, I just made it in Photoshop, lacking an official one from Omega:

That grey dial smp looks way better in your pics than the official images.

For whatever reason, I'm beginning to like the blue Seamaster, as opposed to my first impression. Still don't care for the conical He crown.

I'll reserve final judgement until I can see these in person but they kind of look like cheap Aquaracers in photos :shrug:

These are the best that Omega presented at Basel, definitely.
Have to say though then what the best they can do is a slightly less attractive version of a Longines reedition that probably costs 1/3 the money, it speaks about the level of fail Omega has attained.

I (slightly) prefer the small seconds myself, although I might like it more on the other strap.

If they create the old 321 chronos with modern movements and slightly upsized, I'll be back on team Omega.

Imagine this in ~40mm

Need to see it in person, but the proportions look terrible in the picture. It's like Omega forgot how to design a watch.
