The Omega Speedmaster is an icon among the icons. First presented in 1957 under the reference CK2915, it had been refreshed a few times in its day to day existence to now have a marginally extraordinary case and dial . In any case, back in 2013, Omega chose to present a re-issue of the absolute first Speedy, an overhauled version that was keeping the general same look with a cutting edge turn and creative development. This pleasant watch was sadly not as devoted to the orignal as the collectors needed to. This is currently corrected, with the Omega Speedmaster 57 Co-Axial returned to with Broad Arrow Hands and another dial (ref. 3184.108.40.206.01.002).
The 2013 Omega Speedmaster 57 was utilizing a similar formula as the Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial presented a year ago, which means a vintage motivated watch yet not a basic reedition. Rather than simply reproducing precisely the same watch, Omega decided to modernize the plan – yet utilizing some vintage tricks – and to bring into the case an advanced, effective and dependable development, the type 9300. Consequently, the Omega Speedmaster 57 highlights this bi-compax development, with hours & minutes chronograph turns in a solitary sub-dial, a self-winding component and 2 barrels for 60 hours of force reserve. Of course it includes Omega’s co-axial escapement with the silicium (Si 14) balance spring, a free-sprung screw balance and it’s chronometer appraised – same development than the Seamaster 600m Chrono or the Speedmaster Gray Side of The Moon .
The hardened steel case, with its straight carries and its brushed metallic bezel – much the same as the first Omega Speedmaster CK2915 from 1957 – measures 41.5mm and has both cleaned and brushed surfaces. The wristband is additionally made in treated steel and highlights cleaned outside connections and a focal brushed connection. The oddities for 2015 anyway are not here. You’ll need to take a nearer to the hands and the dial to discover out.
The 2013 Omega Speedmaster 57 was coming with ‘Alpha’ hands – that allude to the 1959 Speedmaster CK2998 and not to the 1957 Speedmaster CK2915 – and applied files in white metal, loaded up with glowing paint. The 2015 release of the Omega Speedmaster 57 changes its dial and hands to be more dedicated to the first, which means first some Broad Arrow hands – an arrow hand for the hours and a blade hand for the minutes – and then coated with vintage Super-LumiNova. Alpha-formed hands can be found in the little hour long and 12-hour recorder at 3 o’clock and the little seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
The dial is likewise refreshed, with beige moved dial signs. Recognizing this model from its 2013 counterpart are the recessed hour markers that are incompletely loaded up with vintage Super-LumiNova that transmits a green light rather than the applied indexes.
