OMEGA's famous Speedmaster '57, first introduced in 2013, returns this year with a Master Chronometer upgrade and a slimmer profile. The new 40.5 mm collection consists of eight stainless steel models, all offering a streamlined look with iconic heritage touches and bold new colours.
With its unique Broad Arrow hands and tachymeter scale on the bezel, the Speedmaster ’57 is emblematic of the first, revolutionary Speedmaster that was launched in 1957. For the latest update, OMEGA has lifted the vintage spirit to another level, with slimmer styling and a Co-Axial Master Chronometer engine that takes precision to the next gear. Worn on the wrist of actor Hyun Bin, this enduring watch is heading in a new direction, yet still with the essential look of the original Speedmaster line.
"The collection has been updated with manual-winding Co-Axial Master Chronometer movements."
The new manual-winding movement has allowed for a thinner case (12.99 mm), while the finer bezel helps add to the slimline look. Keep your eye on the tachymeter scale to spot the iconic Dot over Ninety.
The black dial model is created with two plates in a “sandwich” conception to enhance the Super-LumiNova layer beneath the recessed hour markers. This unique effect certainly accentuates the watch's style.
Other models in the collection are crafted with a classic construction and offer the advantage of colour! Choices include PVD blue, green or a new varnished burgundy, all with applied hour markers on the dial.
The steel bracelet includes OMEGA’s patented comfort release system and follows the same design of the Apollo 11 watch released in 2019. Colourful leather straps are also available.
"The 40.5 mm watches include multiple chronograph functions and a date display at 6 o'clock."
