As we all know, Omega released the “1957 Trilogy” watch in 2017, including three watches first introduced in 1957, including the limited edition Omega Seamaster, Railmaster and Speedmaster, and all these iconic Omega watches. The family that debuted in the year. Most of the 60th anniversary limited edition models have been sold out, and this Omega reference 318.104.22.168.01.001 Speedmaster’57 chronograph 38.6mm is included. So, in a sense, if you are really interested in this watch, you will have to try to find one, although the limited edition of 3,557 is not very small.
While reviewing the Speedmaster’57 chronograph “1957 Trilogy” watch, I asked myself “I would rather have this watch or the original 1957 watch?” We know that these watches are not one-on-one copies, but Omega did design this limited edition “tribute”, and most of the old-fashioned re-released watches did not. More importantly, although it is not exactly the same, for those who want to have the ’57 most modern super series experience, Omega reference 322.214.171.124.01.002 Speedmaster ’57 coaxial chronograph 41.5mm watch Is a pretty good choice for the same.
My favorite story about this Speedmaster 1957 Trilogy watch is how Omega made this case. They basically performed a 3D scan of the original Speedmaster watch, based on the brand’s work at the Omega Museum across the street from Bienne. Since Omega does not have the original schematics of the 1950s, they need to use this type of modeling technique to build old cases based on old cases. One of the interesting things they found was that all the Omega logos on the watch were different. In fact, there are five Omega logos on the watch, but none of them are identical. The reason is that the 1950s logo did not have a specific size specification, and Omega used different suppliers to produce its watch components. Therefore, each supplier will more or less extract the Greek Omega letter logo, which causes each logo on the watch to be slightly different. However, before they scanned, Omega himself apparently didn’t even realize it.
In my opinion, the different logo sizes make it the 60th anniversary model, which also helps to increase its character. The most modern part of the watch is the bracelet, which includes Omega’s welcome tuning system in deployment. Replica Omega is not as good as Rolex in the steel bracelet division, but it is more durable and well-made than the 1957 original watch bracelet. If you choose such a “retro redistribution” watch instead of its true original model, which is obviously more nostalgic, then one of the biggest reasons for doing this is durability and reliability. If you want to replace the strap with a strap, you can – but please note that the non-standard strap width is 19 mm.
Personally, I think the most amazing Omega Speedmaster watch is the new and modern when it was first released. More than 60 years later, it still has the logo of many modern watches, which may seem futuristic at the time. The Speedmaster is the first watch to have a tachometer scale printed on the bezel and dial of the watch. Today, even if no one uses the speedometer speed calculation function on Speedmaster or other fake watches, such design elements are so iconic that they seem to be inseparable from the theme of the racing watch.
We all know that even if Speedmaster gets the most notorious “moon watch” before it enters space, Speedmaster is designed for track and other vehicle time measurement purposes. Ten years after the initial release of Speedmaster, it began to serve as an astronaut watch. Today’s most popular Speedmaster watches have a different look and feel than the “wide arrow dial” of these original models. I happen to like the appearance of Speedmaster’s needles and archers at the same time, because they each convey their own personality and purpose psb124e. For the Speedmaster ’57 Trilogy watch, Omega certainly gave it some aging look, some called “artificial patina.”
If you’re interested in a retro-reissue watch, be sure to know why vintage watches are so popular. The discolored dial and lumens are of course part of it. The colors actually look very beautiful, the faded black/grey dial and the creamy “retro lume” certainly mean the icon of fashion. Don’t miss the steel Omega logo (not the printed version) required on the dial.
In terms of size, the 1957 Trilogy Speedmaster chronograph is designed to be 38.6 mm wide and the same size as the original. First of all, I think it’s too small, but the thick bracelet and chronograph buttons make the watch feel less like it. For this size, the ratio is also very effective. So, if you don’t personally like the 40mm wide Hybrid watch, this limited edition retro style watch may be what you want. All in all, the 38.6 mm wide Speedmaster case is very comfortable and stylish, and you will agree if you have similar experience with this series. In addition, the case is made of 316L stainless steel and is water resistant to 60 meters.
