Presented at the Baselworld 2016 trade show, the Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer (ref. 304.33.44.52.03.001) is one of the most attractive takes on Omega’s constantly growing collection of the legendary “moon watches.” Combining striking exterior with an advanced, anti-magnetically shielded movement, the device tries really hard to be worth every single dollar that the Swiss watchmaker wants you to spend on it.
At the Baselworld 2014 event, the Swiss watchmaking house has presented its Omega Speedmaster Mark II 1969 Reissue (ref. 3184.108.40.206.06.001) automatic chronograph. The model was designed in the same style as the iconic Speedmaster chronograph that first went on sale 45 years ago. It looks like the number of great watches inspired by the great decade is going to get yet another worthy member.
Omega Speedmaster, the legendary “space” chronograph that is never getting old, has recently been reintroduced as a “two-tone” model and also slightly refreshed. Available with at least two dials and two colors of 18-karat gold alloy, the 2013 Omega Speedmaster 57 (ref. 3220.127.116.11.01.001) is more in line with their current product range.
Omega doesn’t update its collections too often, but when it does, it does it with style. Offered in a massive, 18-karat rose gold body, the new Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph (ref. 418.104.22.168.02.001) sports their fairly fresh Cal. 9301 co-axial automatic movement and features an extremely elegant dial layout.
Although the new Omega Speedmaster Racing (ref. 322.214.171.124.06.001) chronograph takes the iconic collection back to the classic tri-compax layout (as you probably know, unlike more modern versions, the original 1957 Speedmaster that was powered by the legendary Omega caliber 321 hand-wound mechanism featured only the usual three hands for displaying time, as well as three chronograph sub-dials with no calendar), the redesigned timepiece still offers you a highly legible dial and all the signature elements that you can expect from the watch that accompanied the first man on the Moon, including the famous tachymeter scale, which is engraved right on the black fixed bezel and painted glaring yellow.
It’s been years since Omega discontinued its (almost) legendary digital/analog Speedmaster Professional X-33 that, in its heyday, directly competed against a similar model from Breitling. Finally, the Swiss watchmaker has presented a totally reworked version of the piece. The 2012 Omega Spacemaster Z-33 (ref. 3126.96.36.199.01.001) features an absolutely stunning (although somewhat controversial) design and belongs to the “love it or hate it” category. As you may have already guessed, the titanium-clad monster from outer space was first demonstrated in flesh earlier this month during Baselworld 2012 event. Here is our first “initial impressions”-style review on this beast.
