The little history of the Ranchero :
In 1958, Omega launched this reference for sale, a nice mix of Railmaster, Seamaster 300 and Speedmaster from 1957.
The only problem, the brand forgets that one of its main markets at the time was the Hispanic market. However, in Spanish, "Ranchero" means “farmer”.
This strategic error unfortunately rebuffed the vast majority of the Hispanic wealthy classes who refused to buy this reference, not being able to bring themselves to wear such a popular nickname.
The watch was produced only two years (1958-59), disappearing from the market in 1959, which makes it a rare reference.
