The New 2013 Omega Speedmaster '57   1 Comments


The second offering from Omega at the Baselworld 2013 that has the attention from collectors and magazine editors is the new Titanium Speedmaster '57. The new '57 is a throwback to some 50 years ago when the first speedmasters were made (even before the Moonwatch). It still feature the straight lugs of the original which makes the watch look and feel bigger than its 41.5mm case size. Seen here side by side with the Darkside of the Moon, it is imperceptible visually that there is a difference of 3mm. While it features the same Calibre 9300 found in the Darkside, the Grade 5 Titanium with polished and brush finishing looks quite dramatically different from other Speedmasters due to the unique blue grey dial.

For those with smaller wrists or those preferring the mainstream case dimension  of under 42mm, the '57 is a wonderful option. While it many not have the visual uniqueness of the black ceramic of the Darkside, the Grade 5 Titanium is a material not easy to come by. It is understated yet bristling with Omega's cutting edge technological achievements - such as polished Titanium and the wonderful calibre 9300 (silicium balance spring that has inherently antimagnetic properties).

Most importantly however, must be how it looks and feel on the wrist. Without a doubt the most impressive visual aspect of this model is how the dial looks. The tone of the blue grey changes with every angle. This model stands out as one with a strong character and look.
