Vintage Super Rare Omega Seamaster/Ranchero Miltary Issue Pakistan Air Force (PAF) 2996-1. In the late 1950's, Omega Watch company received an order of Railmaster from the Pakistani Air Force. These Railmaster with its highly legible dial, explorer style numerals and sweep second hand. These Railmasters were fitted with screw back cases with the Seahorse logo.
For some reason, they wanted these Railmasters to be signed "Seamaster" and Omega obliged. The diasl were signed "Omega Seamaster" and so were the case backs" with a Pakistan Air Force "PAF engraving.The Railmaster "Seamasters" were issued exclusively to pilots, all Pakistani Air force officer and they became a very prized swag among these Pakistani officers. Soon ground officers of the Pakistan Air Force were asking for their own issued Seamaster. The Air Force goes back to Omega but with a much tighter budget and ask that a Ranchero be used instead of the Railmaster but with the same requirements as the original order. This watch is the Ranchero "Seamster", the CK2996 was issued specifically for the PAK with a Seamster dial, a central sweep second and the explorer dial similar to its big brother the Railmaster.
