Replica Omega Speedmaster Chronograph Limited Edition Watch

watches sale

As we all know, Omega released “The 1957 Trilogy” set of watches in 2017, including remakes of three models that came out in 1957 firstly, which consist of a limited edition Omega Seamaster, Railmaster as well as Speedmaster, all of those iconic Omega watch families having debuted that year. Most of the limited-edition models of the 60th anniversary are completely sold out, this Omega reference 311. Speedmaster’57 Chronograph 38.6mm are included. Thus, for some sense, you’ll have to try your best to find one if you are really interested in this watch, even though the limited-edition volume of 3,557 pieces isn’t very small totally.
While reviewing the Speedmaster’57 Chronograph “1957 Trilogy” watch, I asked myself “would I rather have this watch or the original from 1957?” We know that the cheap replica watches are not a one-to-one copy of one another, but Omega did design this limited edition “homage” in a way that most vintage re-release watches don’t get. What’s more, while it isn’t the same, for those who want the most modern Speedmaster experience with the ’57 look, the Omega reference 331. Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Chronograph 41.5mm watch is a rather good choice as well.
My favorite story about this Speedmaster 1957 Trilogy watch is how Omega made the case. They essentially did a 3D scan of the original Speedmaster watch which was based on pieces the brand has at the Omega museum across the street from the manufacture in Bienne. Due to Omega did not have original schematics from the 1950s, they needed to base the creation of the new cases on the old ones using this type of modeling technology. They found one of the interesting things was that all of the Omega logos on the watches were different. In fact, there are five Omega logos on the watch and none of them are the same. The reason is that there wasn’t a specific dimension spec for the logo in the 1950s, Omega used different suppliers to produce its watch components. Therefore, each supplier more or less drew out the Greek omega letter logo on their own, which resulted in each of the logos on the watch being just a little bit different. However, Omega themselves obviously didn’t even realize this until they did the scan.
In my opinion, the different logo sizes made it to this 60th-anniversary model which also helps add to its character. The most modern part of the watch is the bracelet, which includes Omega’s welcome micro-adjust system in the deployment. Replica Omega is not as well as the Rolex yet in the steel bracelet department, but it certainly feels a lot more durable and well-made than original 1957 watch bracelets. If you choose a “vintage re-issue” watch like this in favor of its actual original model which is clearly more nostalgic, one of the biggest reasons you do so is for durability and dependability. If you want to change the bracelet to a strap, you can – but note the non-standard strap width of 19mm.
Personally, I think the most amazing of the Omega Speedmaster case was its novel and modern when it was first released. It still has many of the hallmarks of a modern watch more than 60 years later, and probably looked rather futuristic at that time. The Speedmaster was the first watch to have a tachymeter scale printed on the bezel of a watch versus on the dial. Today even though no one uses the tachymeter speed calculation feature on the Speedmaster or other fake watches, such design elements are so iconic that they can’t seem to be separated from the racing watch theme.
We all know that even though the Speedmaster gained most of its current notoriety as the “Moonwatch,” before it went to space the Speedmaster was designed for the track and other vehicle time measuring purposes as its name implies. It was a decade after the Speedmaster was originally released that it started to serve duty as an astronaut’s watch. Today’s most popular Speedmaster replica watches have a different look and feel from the “broad arrow dial” of these original models. I happen to like both the needle hand and arrow hand look of the Speedmaster equally, as they each convey their own sense of personality and purpose. For the Speedmaster ’57 Trilogy watch Omega of course gave it a bit of an aged look that some refer to as “faux patina.”
If you are interested in a vintage re-release watch, surely you know why the vintage watches are so popular today. Discolored dials and lume colors are certainly part of that. The colors actually look pretty nice, the faded black/gray dial and cream-colored “vintage lume” certainly means the sign of fashion. Don’t miss the desirably applied steel Omega logo (as opposed to a printed one) on the dial as well.
For size, this 1957 Trilogy Speedmaster Chronograph is designed to be 38.6mm wide, with the same dimensions as the original. Firstly, I thought it too small but the thick bracelet and chronograph pushers make the watch feel not like that. The proportions also work really well for this case size. So, if you personally don’t like 40mm wide-plus modern Speedmaster watches, this limited-edition vintage-styled model might be exactly what you want. In all, the 38.6mm wide Speedmaster case is really comfortable to wear and stylish, you would agree that if you have a similar experience with this collection. Also, the case is in 316L stainless steel and is water-resistant to 60m. If it really is your favor, please don’t miss it and click here to find more information for your purchase.
