Omega Speedmaster '57 Co-Axial Chronograph Luxury Watch Review

Watchuwant is now WatchBox! Subscribe for the best luxury watch content. Omega fuses the best of new and vintage luxury in the 41.5mm stainless steel Omega Speedmaster '57 Co-Axial Chronograph. With a dial, tachymeter, and straight-cut lugs inspired by the chronographs of Omega's past and a caliber 9300 automatic chronometer rooted in 21st century technology, the Speedmaster '57 is a formidable package. Omega released the Speedmaster '57 series at Baselworld 2013 as a tribute line that eschewed slavish literalism. While the Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axials, Bullheads, and Museum Collection watches hew to historic designs with religious fanaticism, watches like the Speedmaster '57, Globemaster, and Seamaster Planet Ocean sample the best of vintage flair while retaining artistic license. The benefit to the end-user is a modern timepiece with timeless style and a unique identity un-beholden to reflected glory or nostalgia. In other words, the Omega Speedmaster '57 can stand on its own four straight-cut lugs as a masterpiece in its own right.
