WatchPro has been given a preview of two models from Omega’s 2017 range of Speedmasters that will be launched at Baselworld.
It is the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster, the watch that went to the moon and back in 1969, and a men’s and ladies’ model has been revealed ahead of the main event at Basel.
2017 Speedmaster 38 mm
The refined 38 mm collection retains the famous look and 60 year heritage of the Speedmaster, but also updates it with a pure and new aesthetic touch. For this ladies’ model, the diamond-paved bezel also includes a tachymeter scale on a brown aluminium ring. This dual design has enabled Omega to add the elegance of diamonds and also retain the sporty DNA of the original Speedmaster models.
2017 Speedmaster Automatic
The distinctive minute-track style on this stainless steel watch first appeared on a 1968 Speedmaster model. Linked to the Speedmaster’s motor racing heritage, it returns again, this time on a matt-black dial. Other features on the dial include the orange markings and bevelled 18ct white gold arrowhead indexes. The perforated rubber strap is another new addition that enhances the innovation.
