Omega - Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Chronograph

| No comment
Since it was introduced in 1957, the Omega Speedmaster has defined the classic chronograph for its reliability and timeless design.

This year, at BaselWorld 2013, Omega will introduce the Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Chronograph characterized by design elements originally seen in the first Speedmaster model like the straight lugs and the flat bracelet.


The Speedmaster ’57 models are powered by the Omega Co-Axial calibres 9300/9301 – Omega's exclusive in-house Co-Axial calibres incorporating chronograph functions.


The column-wheel chronograph has 12-hour and 60-minute counter hands placed on the same sub-dial at 3 o'clock. This familiar arrangement of the hands, which recalls the hour and minute hands on the main dial, enables intuitive reading of the chronograph.


It also has a central chronograph seconds hand, a small seconds hand on the sub-dial at 9 o'clock and a date window at the 6 o’clock position. The two chronograph control pushers function totally independently.


The Co-Axial calibres 9300/9301 are also equipped with a silicon balance spring. Silicon is non-magnetic so it is not influenced by magnetic fields. This quality combined with the excellent resilient coefficient of silicon allows the balance springs, which are etched on a silicon wafer, to deliver improved chronometric performance. Silicon also has a very low fatigue influence and ages slowly. The outstanding reliability delivered by the combination of Co-Axial technology and the silicon balance spring is such that Omega delivers its Co-Axial watches equipped with silicon balance springs with a full four-year warranty.

The Speedmaster ’57 has been created with a 41.50 mm case available in a choice of metals, including red or yellow gold, lightweight titanium, bicolour red gold/stainless steel or in classic stainless steel. Each model is presented with either a matching bracelet or a leather strap.
