The OMEGA Speedmaster ’57 was introduced at Baselworld 2013 and has been designed to echo the look of the original and much loved Speedmaster first introduced over 50 years ago. The Speedmaster ’57 has straight lugs extending from the watch case and the bracelet is based on the renowned chronograph. The 41.5 mm case is a classic combination of 18K fiery red gold with stainless steel.
The black dial features two sub-dials instead of the three that are normally associated with the Speedmaster. This is made possible by the placement of the 12-hour and 60-minute counters on the same sub-dial at 3 o’clock allowing for a logical and easily legible chronograph reading.
The second sub-dial at the 9 o’clock position keeps track of the passing seconds. The 18K gold bezel is easily recognisable with its familiar tachymeter scale.
Powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300, which is the first of OMEGA's exclusive Co-Axial calibres to incorporate a chronograph function, the Speedmaster ’57 combines a vintage look with what is considered a revolutionary movement, visible of course through the sapphire crystal caseback.
The reliability of the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300 is such that it comes with a full four-year warranty and it is water resistant to 100 metres.
