The Speedmaster is one of OMEGA’s most iconic timepieces. Having been a part of all six lunar missions, the timepiece is an impressive representation of the brand’s adventurous pioneering spirit.
This 40.50 mm model, inspired by the legendary 1957 original, features a stainless steel case and a black dial with recessed hour markers showing vintage Super-LumiNova from beneath. Along with rhodium-plated “Broad Arrow” hands, there is a date window at 6 o'clock, a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, and 12-hour and 60-minute chronograph recorders on the subdial at 3 o’clock.
The brushed bezel includes a blackened tachymeter scale, while on the caseback, there is a “Speedmaster ‘57” engraving as well as a flat sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment inside.
The watch is presented on a brown leather strap with an OMEGA logo in postive relief on the buckle, and is driven by the manual-winding OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9906.
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
The chronograph function is a mechanism for measuring time intervals. A can therefore be used to time events while displaying the time like any traditional watch.
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
The day of the month, displayed in a window on a watch dial at the 3 or 6 o’clock position, or within a subdial at 9 o'clock.
