Born in 1957, the original OMEGA Speedmaster was first known for its precision, strength, and reliability. This iconic sports chronograph eventually evolved to become an icon of space exploration and style, becoming the first watch worn on the moon in 1969.
Going back to the start of the story, OMEGA has drawn inspiration from the original vintage models to create the Speedmaster ’57 collection. The wristwatches are an aesthetic emulation of the classic design, offering a “retro revival” with a modern update, including timepieces in stainless steel or 18K gold.
The legendary tachymeter scale is included on all models, while a range of colours can also be attained, including those with black, blue or silvery dials.
Furthermore the Swiss luxury watches are powered by the OMEGA Co‑axial Calibre 9300, or the renowned Calibre 1861, which is a direct direct descendant of the movement worn on the moon. Featuring sapphire crystal on the dials, the Speedmaster ‘57 is presented on a metal bracelet or a leather strap. The collection has been designed for watch historians and lovers of classic timepieces who cherish the appearance inspired by the original Speedmaster.
