Omega Speedmaster ’57 Chronograph 38.6mm Watch Review

By | 2018-09-07

In 2017, Omega released “The 1957 Trilogy,” which includes a remake of three wristwatches originally released in 1957. They include limited-edition Omega Seamaster, Railmaster and, of course, Speedmaster – each with the iconic Omega replica watches series. It debuted that year. Most of the 60th anniversary limited edition models sold out – including Omega reference 311. Speedmaster ’57 Chronograph 38.6mm. So, in a very real sense, if you’re interested in the watch, even if the 3,557 limited-edition pieces aren’t that small, you’ll have to struggle to find one.

The question I asked myself as I reviewed fake Speedmaster’s 57 Chronograph, 1957 Trilogy watch: “would I rather have this watch or the original 1957?” It’s not that the watch is a one-to-one copy of each other but Omega did design this limited-edition “tribute,” which most older reissued watches don’t have. Even more, while it’s not quite the same, reference 331. Omega Speedmaster ’57 co-axial Chronograph 41.5mm watch is a good choice for those who want to have the most modern Speedmaster experience.

Personally, I find the novelty and modernity of Omega Speedmaster’s first release somewhat surprising. More than 60 years later, it still has many of the hallmarks of a modern watch, which might have seemed futuristic at the time. Speedmaster is the first watch to have a speedometer scale on the wrist and dial. Today, even if no one uses Speedmaster or the speedometer speed calculations on other cheap Omega replica watches, such design elements are so iconic that they seem unable to be separated from the racing watch theme.

We must also recall that even if Speedmaster obtained most of the current “” moon watches” “before it went into space, Speedmaster (as the name implies) was designed for track and other vehicle-time measurement purposes. It wasn’t until about a decade after Speedmaster’s original release that it began serving as an astronaut’s watch. Today’s most popular Speedmaster luxury replica watches for sale have a different look and feel to these original models of the ” wide arrow dial.”  I happen to like Speedmaster’s needle hand and archer look just as much because they each convey a sense of individuality and purpose. For Speedmaster’s 57 Trilogy watch, Omega certainly gives it an aging look, some call it “artificial rust.” I forgive them.

What size? This 1957 Trilogy Speedmaster chronograph is 38.6mm wide and the same size as the original. At first, I thought I’d find it too small but the thick bracelet and chronograph push kept the watch from feeling too small. The scale also fits this size well. What’s more, if you personally don’t like the 40mm-wide modern Speedmaster, this limited-edition retro style Omega replica watches swiss movement might just be what you want. All in all, the 38.6mm-wide Speedmaster case is very comfortable and stylish to wear, but some will find it on the smaller side. Made of 316L stainless steel, the case is waterproof to a depth of 60 meters.
