Introducing: The Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition
If you had gotten some information about their most stunning wishes for Baselworld this year, this watch may really have been the appropriate response. The plan of the reference CK2915-1 began everything, and declared what is seemingly the most celebrated chronograph ever (sorry dear Daytona, however the Omega started things out and went to the Moon).
As you can peruse in Ben’s all-encompassing Reference Points , the Speedmaster showed some momentous highlights from the beginning, beginning with the undeniable tachymeter bezel. It was intended to be the best apparatus you could wear on a track (its undertakings on the Moon coming a lot later). This extraordinary plan is perceived and desired around the globe, which clarifies why the uncommon excess Omega Speedmaster reference 2915 presently exchange hands for significant sums (and regularly move furious fights at auctions).
Sixty years after the fact, the Speedmaster gets back with exactly the same lines.
For the 60th Anniversary of the Speedmaster, Omega is offering ideal reedition of the first, and there is no uncertainty that the authorities will fall head-over-heels in adoration. It is the absolute first time that such a lot of consideration has been paid to duplicate the littlest subtleties – generally it is more about motivation or modernization. This commemorative version unquestionably took another course, focusing on an ideal coordinating look.
It begins with the case, which is similar strong 38mm case with straight drags as the first, not the 42mm with lyre hauls that in the long run showed up. Also, the tachymeter bezel is carved in exactly the same manner as the first, up to the highlight on the French word tachymètre.
It truly looks as though a 1957 Speedmaster was brought from the past.
The same spotlight on the dial yields similar outcomes, even down to a little artificial tropicalization to make the piece look more established (from the couple of images we’ve seen, Omega doesn’t seem to have gone over the edge here). Clearly, the expansive bolt hands are there (as they were on the recently delivered Speedmaster ’57 ), however things go further than that. The applied Omega logo has been brought back, and it even appears to be that Omega Speedmaster mark is in the first textual style! As you can expect it doesn’t come with the Professional notice, as this one was just presented with the 42mm reference 105.012 in 1964. You can see that Omega guaranteed everything was looking period-right, an exceptionally pleasant touch in the event that you are even 50% of a purist.
Evidently, there are a few updates too. In the first place, the development isn’t the first type 321 (would you be able to envision how crazy it would be?) however the advanced development, the chronograph type 1861. The arm band offers a similar look and development, however I would wager that it is marginally thicker and likely somewhat sturdier as well. Furthermore, obviously, the first radium lume has been supplanted with SuperLuminova that imitates the tone. At last, the “Swiss Made” is presently over the seconds, track while it used to be below.
This commemorative Speedmaster doesn’t come alone, different references disclosed in 1957 were additionally reproduced.
In expansion to the Speedmaster, both the Seamaster and the Railmaster were delivered in 1957, and they’ve gotten comparative medicines this year. As a matter of fact, these three watches may never coordinate the appeal of the vintage models, however you need to recall that the vintage models are currently very uncommon and exorbitant, while these cutting edge interpretations will give admittance to these weighty plans to 3,557 proprietors each.

And each will be evaluated under 7,000 CHF as well. The Speedmaster is set at 6,700 CHF (roughly $6,740 at season of distributing), and the vintage-style bundling additionally including one calfskin tie and one NATO too.
Note that it will likewise be conceivable to buy a set with the three watches together, again in a restricted version of 557 models, and Omega declared that those will bear committed etchings on the caseback and an additional content on the dial.
