The new Omega Speedmasters 2017

The Speedmaster 38 mm, simplicity meets iconic design

The OMEGA Speedmaster is one of the most recognised chronographs in the world. Now, OMEGA introduces this refined 38 mm collection. The famous look and heritage is still at the heart of creation, but this time, the enduring design has been given a pure and new aesthetic touch.

This model nicknamed “Cappuccino” is just one piece in the complete collection for both men and women. Its case is made from stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold, while the strap has been made from taupe-brown leather.

One of the watch’s most interesting features is the diamond-paved bezel that also includes a tachymeter scale on a brown aluminium ring. This dual design has enabled OMEGA to add the elegance of diamonds and also retain the sporty DNA of the original Speedmaster models.

The watch features a bi-colour dial with unique oval subdials in brown. At a closer look, these oval subdials closely resemble OMEGA’s own brand logo. Continuing on the dial, an oval date window has been positioned at 6 o’clock and the “baton” hands and the indexes have been created from 18K Sedna™ gold.

The caseback has been stamped with the Speedmaster’s iconic Seahorse medallion, and on the inside, the watch is driven by the OMEGA Calibre 3330, complete with Co-Axial technology and a silicon balance spring. This superb craftsmanship gives the watch a 4 year warranty.

60 years after the launch of the very first Speedmaster, the chronograph is still a great source of inspiration. Although its spirit remains the same, this new 38 mm collection has been created with simplicity, size and colour in mind.

The Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer, an iconic racing dial returns

True to OMEGA tradition, every new Speedmaster carries the spirit and design inspiration of the models that came before. In the new Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer, this is immediately clear when you view the dial.

The distinctive minute-track style on this stainless steel watch first appeared on a 1968 Speedmaster model. Linked to the Speedmaster’s motor racing heritage, it returns again, this time on a matt-black dial. Other notable features on the dial include the orange markings and bevelled 18K white gold arrowhead indexes that are filled with white Super-LumiNova.

For this model, the subdials have also been slightly expanded for improved readability and the 44.25 mm case is thinner than previous versions thanks to the work done on the sapphire crystal in particular.

The polished ceramic bezel features a brushed Liquidmetal® tachymeter scale as well as distinctive orange wording that matches the colour of the varnished hands and tip of the seconds hand.

Around the wrist, there is a black leather strap that contains a section of orange rubber through the middle. A milling tool has then been used to create micro perforations through the constructed strap that reveal the orange rubber inside. This perforated design provides the perfect sporty look and also has the benefit of aerating the wearer’s skin.

The Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer represents the next Speedmaster model with Master Chronometer certification. Driven by the calibre 9900, the watch and its movement have reached the Swiss industry’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic resistance, as approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
