Omega unveiled Speedmaster’s 60th anniversary limited edition at the 2017 Basel international watch and jewellery fair. Take a closer look at the Omega Speedmaster watch.
Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition
While Omega does offer three watches in a Swiss oak case, limited to 557, the brand also sells each separately. Omega replica watch likes to make special versions of watches like Speedmaster Ultraman. This time, the brand has decided to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Omega Speedmaster with a limited edition (reference no. 318.104.22.168.01.001). The watch is almost the relaunch of the first Speedmaster ck2915-1 in 1957, from case size to dial style to its innovative speedometer dial steel ring.
The fake Omega Speedmaster watches collection features a stainless steel case with a diameter of 38.6mm and a direct bezel. A quick look at the ring, however, suggests that the Omega even includes the French word “tachymetre”, too, too similar in size to the first model.
Inside the case is a dial based on the original “wide arrow” design, which features an arrowhead with a central pointer. In addition, to mimic the look of a typical vintage watch, Speedmaster includes a slightly tropical black background and a copper-green SuperLumiNova. There is also the Omega logo for the original application and the AAA Omega Speedmaster replica signature for the original font. Of course, the surface of the watch is protected by Hesalite crystal rather than modern sapphire.
While Omega does retain the basic design components of the first Speedmaster, they do add some necessary upgrades. First, there is a bracelet that includes a look similar to the retro design of the watch, including the retro cheap Omega replica watches logo on the clasp, but it is thicker and sturdier, in line with today’s expectations. More importantly, the watch is powered not by the Calibre 321, but by its modern descendant, a hand-linked 1861 mechanical movement with a 48 power reserve.
With a limited quantity of 3,557 pieces, Speedmaster’s 60th anniversary is an absolute must for Omega lovers. With this piece in the watch series, # SpepeyTuesdays will never be the same!
