    Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition

    Odd that during Basel 2019, I would come across a watch that was released in 2017. The Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition is a fantastic watch that definitely deserves it's own thread. In 2017, Omega released the 1957 Trilogy Limited Editions, paying tribute to three pieces that became classics: Railmaster, Seamaster 300 and Speedmaster. Yesterday, I acquired the Speedmaster which completes my personal Trilogy collection.

    Last year, the Omega Boutique here in Vancouver gifted me an absolutely gorgeous bound book entitled "OMEGA Chronicle, The Story of Omega". Not only is it one of the finest watch brand chronicles I have seen, it is also one of the finest gifts I have ever received. These images are taken from the Chronicle, and give a brief history of the three watches, along with my personal Trilogy at one of the pages:







    So, back to the Speedmaster. Just thought I would post some of the photos I have taken the last couple of days:





























    After the Trilogy edition appeared in 2017, the Speedmaster became the most popular. My favorite was, and is, the Railmaster as it had been a grail for a long time. The Speedy was so popular, that I never even got to see one until the 2018 Christmas Event, when a of the guests at the event was wearing his. But I never had a chance to look at it closely until a couple of weeks ago, when I discovered that the Boutique had received one. Before I bought it, I tried on just about every Speedmaster in the Boutique, thanks to my buddy Jorge's patience. I decided that this is the one I have to get.

    I don't know what it is about the Speedmaster, but to me it looks the most vintage of all three pieces in the Trilogy. The tropical dial and faux patina hands and markers seem to have a more faded appearance. I think that is somehow due to the plexiglass crystal. I am very thankful that Omega used the original plexiglass instead of sapphire on this model.

    Pretty soon it will be time to try the beautiful brown leather strap that is included with the watch, or the grey NATO strap. Each watch in the set includes a leather strap and NATO, with each watch having different colors. They all fit each one of the watches, so there are tons of possibilities.

    Thanks for looking at my post.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Thanks. They really do each have their very different attributes. With all the straps each one comes with, and all interchangeable within the Trilogy, makes interesting possibilities.

    Yes, gradually over the past year. I just got lucky, and wasn't really looking for either the Seamaster 300 or the Speedy, as I just assumed they were all sold.

    I was actually surprised any were still available.

    A very nice Speedmaster. I have always loved the broad arrow handset on those.

    I'm still surprised. I thought they had sold out long ago. And I really didn't want to get one online, so I just put the watch out of my mind. It was just a coincidence that I sold two watches just after I saw the Speedy, and could afford it!

    Nice write up and photos Carl. Your pretty much all set now with those three, and yes I look forward to seeing it on the grey NATO strap soon. Have a great weekend my friend and try to avoid walking into lamp posts!

    Great write-up and pics, as always, Carl. The trilogy pieces still seem to be available here and there. My OB had a SM a few weeks ago. Looks like the demand was hyped a little bit in the beginning, quite a few people got theirs later.
