The Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph is an iconic combination of the legendary Speedmaster design and Omega’s very own heritage chronographs from the 1940s
Omega is a brand that’s hard not to love, from its prestigious heritage to the stunning pieces that it presents time and again, Omega has become so closely intertwined with watchmaking history and remains a source of inspiration for the industry at large.
The Omega Seamaster Chronoscope Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph is a great case in point of the brand’s pure watchmaking prowess. Powered by Omega’s stunning, in-house Calibre 9908, this manual-wound movement is so accurate that you can use the inner rings of the watch to measure distance based on the speed of sound, a human’s heartbeat, and speed based on distance. Truly a marvel of engineering in and of itself.
The design of the watch itself is no less impressive, with the case of the watch being finely crafted from stainless-steel, featuring a blue dial with appropriately contrasting silver subdials, and a blue anodized aluminium bezel ring with a tachymeter scale. With Omega’s signature blue hue, the dial presents a very alluring, attractive feel that simply draws you in and makes you want to take a closer look at the finer details of the piece – of which there is no shortage of on the Chronoscope. With leaf-shaped hands, Rhodium-plated numerals, and a unique spiral track pattern running beneath the numbers, this watch is surely a piece of horological history and one that you can keep admiring years down the line.
There is no shortage of refined, excellent craftsmanship when it comes to an Omega, especially one like the Seamaster Chronoscope Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph. Simply flip the watch over and you’ll be treated to a view of the stunning movement powering the watch. Due in no small part to what the brand calls “arabesque” Geneva striping decorating the movement, you’ll undoubtedly have as much pleasure in observing the beautiful mechanism at work as you would watching the seconds hand glide through its tracks.
Presented in a 43mm case, this watch is sure to fit most contemporary wrists. Furthermore, the Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph comes on an excellent steel bracelet that completes the watch and gives it a sense of visual balance that is both pleasing to look at and comfortable to wear.

This allows for a very clear view of the watch’s dial, giving it legibility like no other.
