Yesterday we acquainted you with the Omega 60th commemoration trilogy. Today, we had our gathering with Omega and had a more critical gander at their new assortments. We got numerous inquiries and comments about the Speedmaster. Let’s attempt to answer a couple.
Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Reference 318.104.22.168.01.001
I can be too short about the new Omega Speedmaster 60th commemoration restricted release. I requested one. So did two different folks of the Fratello Watches group. We were just overwhelmed by it. In light of the comments and likes we got on Instagram and Facebook and the various messages and whatsapp messages we got, you like it also yet have some questions.
First, there is the distinction between the Speedmaster 60th Anniversary watch from the trilogy set and the different (restricted release) form. The trilogy set is restricted to 557 pieces, in any case, Omega also will produce 3557 additional pieces (so 557 + 3557. Not 557 + 3000 pieces) for each watch separately.
We got a few inquiries if Omega can eliminate the number from the dial on the trilogy set of 557 pieces. All things considered, no. You need to settle on a decision I presume. Likewise, you can attempt to buy the separate adaptations (Railmaster, Seamaster 300, Speedmaster) with comparing numbers however Omega isn’t encouraging this so you should be truly fortunate with that.
How is the new bracelet?
The new Speedmaster 60th Anniversary models come with another arm band that has been propelled by the 7077 wristband. That arm band was utilized in 1957 on the Railmaster CK2914, Seamaster 300 CK2913 and Speedmaster CK2915. Each of the three models of the 60th commemoration utilize a similar new wristband too. It is significantly thicker than the first 7077, has no adaptable connections and have a cutting edge catch. In spite of being thicker and heavier, it wears truly comfortable and the looks are awesome.
Are the connections polished?
Although I think it is unmistakably noticeable on all pictures out there, we actually get this inquiry every once in a while. The middle connection is brushed and the external connections are cleaned, similar to the original.
Will it fit my Speedmaster Pro?
There were very a few comments and inquiries concerning this arm band and whether it would fit the ‘regular’ Moonwatch models. It doesn’t, all things considered for 19mm drags and the ordinary Speedmaster Professional has 20mm hauls. We got no data on a potential 20mm overhaul for the ordinary Moonwatch for this kind of arm band however. Maybe ‘we’ devotees need to do some more demands for one 😉
How is the fake patina?
There were very a few comments on the artificial patina. Some like it, others don’t. In the tissue, I need to say it was more restrained than in the press pictures. In any case, it is still there and unmistakably obvious. I don’t mind the artificial patina myself, it does equity to the look and feel of the watch. Envision this watch with the white or even green-ish Super-LumiNova, that would have been a piece strange.
Is it a similar case as the First Omega in Space?
We asked, and Omega revealed to us the measurements are marginally unique. The caseback is obviously extraordinary just as the way that it has the Hesalite gem. The case measurement is 38.6mm and the situation back has this decent ‘step’ like the old ones had. A decent detail.
What about the boxes?
The trilogy set comes in one major box. The wooden box is of a tree that was found close to Omega’s HQ in Bienne and traces all the way back to 1880. Inside, you will locate the red cowhide box with Seahorse logo (looking to one side) and corduroy lining. Then, you will discover a cowhide watch move with isolated calfskin 19mm ties for each of the three watches and an evolving tool.
The separate watches come with an immense red box too, with corduroy lining and a watch move also. Counting a NATO lash and a calfskin tie, with Omega marked clasps (like the one of the Speedy Tuesday Limited Edition ).
How much again?
Pay consideration 🙂 The Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Reference 322.214.171.124.01.001 has a retail cost of 6.700 Swiss Francs (barring deals charges). The case with the trilogy set changes proprietor for 20.000 Swiss Francs (barring deals taxes).
Will it become collectible?
No question about that. The arrangement of 557 pieces will be sold out inside minutes, however since it has the more exorbitant cost tag – and the number on the dial – it probably won’t be the one of inclination for gatherers. The different piece, albeit 3557 pieces, will presumably run out instantly too. We previously got a ton of solicitations where individuals can arrange them with in any event the ‘probability’ of getting one by any means. Fundamentally, you need to call your approved vendor or store. Presently. Don’t wait.
