The Omega Speedmaster ‘57 revisited
The 41.5 mm stainless steel Speedmaster ’57 has a polished and brushed casebody that is complemented by its brushed bezel, which features the tachymeter scale that is at once associated with the chronographs in this legendary watch family. Protected by a box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is a black dial with white and beige transferred dial indications. Distinguishing this model from its 2013 counterpart are the recessed hour markers that are partially filled with “vintage“ Super-LumiNova that emits a green light.
Another design element that sets this timepiece apart from its latest predecessor but creates a tighter link to the original Speedmaster is the look of the hands. The polished facetted rhodium-plated central hour and minute hands have been created in the “Broad Arrow” style and are coated with Super-LumiNova. Alpha-shaped hands can be found in the small 60-minute and 12-hour recorder at 3 o’clock and the small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
This inspired timepiece is combined either with a brown leather strap with a polished and brushed stainless steel foldover clasp or Omega´s patented brushed and polished stainless steel screw-and-pin bracelet with a butterfly clasp.
The Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300 is visible through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback. The Speedmaster ’57 is offered with a full four-year warranty. As with all the timepieces in the Speedmaster family, this watch is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet.
