There’s a thin line between 1957 and today. And as it turns out it goes just over the iconic Omega Speedmaster.
The new Omega Speedmaster ’57 (ref 318.104.22.168.01.002) is a subtle nod to the first ever Speedmaster, with iconic details like the straight lugs and broad arrows. Released at BaselWorld this year and perhaps my very favorite of the Speedmasters released. The historic nod combined with the modern in-house Co-Axial movement 9300 with silicon balance spring makes the watch perfect for vintage lovers.
The 41,5 mm case features another nod to history, the cream almost gold colored index. The color is to reassemble the effect of aging, like it or not but its a spot on little touch to this historic watch. You might also notice that the watch only has two sub dials instead of the usual three.
Through the case-back is the beautiful Co-Axial movement 9300 with silicon balance spring visible. It’s the first in-house movement from Omega to incorporate a chronograph function. The sapphire case-back is perhaps not so historic, never the less a nice little feature.
All in all is the Omega Speedmaster ’57 a nice addition to the Speedmaster family, read more about it by clicking here.
