The limited 1957 Omega Speedmaster Tribute
The Omega Seamaster Heritage Models are not only beautiful watches in their own right, they also serve as amazing homages and faithful recreations of the so-called ‘OMEGA Trilogy’.
The first Speedmaster Chronograph
The OMEGA Trilogy was a line of professional timepieces initially launched in 1957 which included the first Speedmaster Chronograph, Railmaster and Seamaster 300 models. There’s a lot to say about each one of these but we want to put a spotlight specifically on the original Speedmaster Chronograph. Since its inception in 1957 it has created quite a legacy for itself. The watch was originally intended to be used as an instrument to measure speed on the ground. A piece that complemented the Grand Tourers of the 1950s very well. The details on the secondary dials resemble that of Italian sports cars from the era such as the Ferrari 500. The original intention to measure speed on the ‘ground’ did not last however.
First watch on the moon
Because of the Speedmaster’s ability to withstand harsh conditions better than other watches, in 1965 NASA made it standard flight equipment for every astronaut. From that moment on the Omega Speedmaster has forever been linked to Space exploration.
It was worn throughout the first American spacewalk during NASA’s Gemini 4 mission and it was the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission. It’s no wonder then why these watches from this era have become very sought-after by collectors, the Moon Watch has become a real highlight of Omega’s history.
Omega Speedmaster Heritage model
In 2017 Omega launched its Seamaster Heritage Models series as a homage to the original 1957 trilogy in order to celebrate their 60th anniversary. These luxury Swiss wristwatches are beautifully faithful recreations fitted with stainless steel cases and classic tropical black dials. The tribute to the Speedmaster, limited to 3,557 pieces, is based on the original ‘Broad Arrow’ design which was the first chronograph wristwatch in the world. This model matches the features of the original perfectly and stays true to the iconic spirit of the Speedmaster.
