In 2017 Omega released”The 1957 Trilogy” set of watches which includes remakes of three versions that initially came out in 1957. Including a limited edition Omega Seamaster, Railmaster, and of course, Speedmaster — with each of these iconic Omega 1957 trilogy limited editions replica watches household having debuted that year. The 60th anniversary limited-edition models are for the most part completely sold out — including this Omega reference 3184.108.40.206.01.001 Speedmaster ’57 Chronograph 38.6mm. Therefore, in a really real sense if you’re interested in this particular watch, you’ll have to struggle a little to find a single although the limited-edition quantity of 3,557 pieces isn’t all that small.
It isn’t the watches are a one-to-one copy of one another but Omega did design this limited edition”homage” in manner that most vintage re-release watches do not get. More so, although it isn’t exactly the same, for those who want the latest Speedmaster experience with the ’57 appearance there’s the mention 3220.127.116.11.01.002 Omega 1957 trilogy box set replica watches Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Chronograph 41.5millimeter watch that is also a good alternative.
The most modern part of the watch is the bracelet, which includes Omega’s welcome micro-adjust system from the deployant. Omega 1957 trilogy seamaster 300 fake watch is not around Rolex yet from the steel bracelet section, but it certainly feels a lot stronger and well-made than initial 1957 watch bracelets. This is important because if you opt for a”vintage re-issue” watch such as this in favor of the real (and obviously more nostalgic) original model, one of the greatest reasons you do this is for durability and dependability. If you want to alter the bracelet to a strap, then you can — but note the non-standard strap width of 19mm.
Personally, I think it’s somewhat amazing how novel and contemporary the Omega Speedmaster case was as it was initially released. More than 60 years later it still has a lot of the hallmarks of a contemporary watch, and at the time probably looked rather futuristic. Nowadays even though no one utilizes the tachymeter speed calculation feature on the Speedmaster or other watches, such design components are so iconic that they can’t appear to be separated by the racing watch motif.
We must also recall that even though the Speedmaster gained nearly all of its present notoriety since the”Moonwatch,” before it went to distance the Speedmaster (as its title suggests ) was designed for the track along with other vehicle time measuring purposes. It was not until about a decade following the Speedmaster was originally released that it started to serve duty as an astronaut’s watch. I happen to enjoy both the needle hands and arrow hand look of the Speedmaster alike, as they each convey their own awareness of personality and purpose. For your Speedmaster ’57 Trilogy watch Omega of course gave it a little aged look that some refer to as”artificial patina.” I forgive them.
If you are getting a vintage re-release watch, clearly you’re interested in a number of the reasons vintage watches are popular today. Discolored dials and lume colors are part of that. The colors actually look pretty fine, meaning that the faded black/gray dial along with cream-colored”classic lume” surely assist its announcement for a fashion item. Don’t miss the desired applied steel Omega seamaster 300 co-axial 1957 trilogy 60th anniversary clone emblem (rather than a printed one) on the dial.
Seeing a lot of the vintage quirks efficiently and less or more authentically reproduced at a brand new watch is intriguing. The dial is clean and effective, but with parts that support what a 1950s sports view may look like. The polished hour and minute hands are the only glistening elements on the dial, which actually wind up looking nice. Proportions are very great with the sub-dials consuming enough space, but not overlapping anything else. Omega maintained the small dome of the dial as well, which ends in a wonderful visual aesthetic. On the dial is an acrylic (Hesalite) crystal.
In a lot of ways, the Omega Speedmaster ’57 Chronograph 38.6mm Trilogy watch is just another flavor of the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. Though this clearly isn’t the Moonwatch, both watches have a lot of character similarities and discuss the Omega caliber 1861 manually-wound chronograph movement that has 48 hours of power book and functions in 3Hz.
There is no doubt that the Omega Speedmaster ’57 Chronograph 38.6mm is a product exclusively for collectors provided that mainstream luxury watch purchasers won’t really understand this, nor are a lot of them find the purpose in getting this over something new and more modern with an Omega seamaster 300 trilogy forum replica watches Master Chronometer movement. Newer watches might not have the visceral charm or story of something like this, which explains why it does not surprise me that Omega dealers around the world offered out of this mention 318.104.22.168.01.001 in a rather short period of time. I for one believe that Omega was wise to generate a product in this way, but I also stress that they (among others) are riding the”classic train” so hard it might run off its rails and leave them without too much management. I’ll end this review with the famously vague adage of”everything in moderation” — speaking to just how much”classic” should be in any of today’s important watch brand diets. Some vintage-inspired design and promotion influence is great, but a lot and finally collectors will overlook why watches like this are created in the first place. In a vacuum, the Omega Speedmaster ’57 Chronograph 38.6mm 322.214.171.124.01.001 is an enjoyable and rewarding watch. Let us just make sure Omega continues to keep versions like this feeling somewhat unique. Retail cost is $7,250 USD.
