Omega has unveiled two new Speedmaster 38mm watches in gold, and they’re stunning.
When it comes to Omega, the Speedmaster might not be as reputed as the Moonwatch that we’ve come to know and love. It certainly had, however, all the makings of becoming an icon with its classic chronograph layout, deeply satisfying symmetry, and ability to thread the line between sporty and stylish so effortlessly.
Over the years, the Omega Speedmaster has seen countless variations, catering seamlessly to both its male and female clientele with different sizes, colours and materials. Recently, the watchmaker has unveiled the latest 18-karat gold references to join the 38mm Speedmaster collection — and these timepieces are destined to please both.
The Speedmaster in 18-karat Sedna gold, for example, accentuates the brand’s red-toned proprietary alloy by pairing it with a taupe-brown leather strap. Instead of the contrasting brown subdials from previous models, this creamy silvery dial is kept the same colour throughout for simplicity. The watch is then finished with 18-karat Sedna gold hands and indexes, lending it a gentle warmth that’ll wear well over many occasions.
The second is a significantly bolder combination of radiant 18-karat yellow gold with green leather. The Omega 38 mm Speedmaster in 18-karat yellow gold sees an opaline silvery dial that’s complemented by 18-karat yellow gold and green varnished hands, with matching arrowhead indexes.
Interestingly, customers can choose between its iconic tachymeter scale set on an aluminium bezel and the glitzier dual bezel that splits the same tachymeter with an outer circle of 90 full-cut diamonds.
The Speedmasters’ good looks are complemented by Omega’s mechanical prowess. Inside, the OMEGA Co-Axial Calibre 3330 is chronometer-certified and has a power reserve of 52 hours.
