OMEGA kicks off the new year with a new Speedmaster Calibre 321 watch that features vintage details and a beautiful design in 18K Canopus Gold™.
Launched in 1957, the Speedmaster watch was created for professional racing car drivers. It was perfectly readable and easy to use, and was also the first in the world to feature a tachymeter scale on the bezel. This feature allowed to time average speeds on the track and complimented the watch’s highly precise and water-resistant design.
Inspired by the very first Speedmaster, known as the CK2915-1, the new Speedmaster Calibre 321 marks the collection’s 65th anniversary. The watch features a unique 38.6 mm case that has been crafted in 18K Canopus Gold™, OMEGA’s own white gold alloy. The crown features the NAIAD symbol.
The watch comes with a deep black onyx dial with an applied vintage OMEGA logo and typography featuring an oval “O” – a detail that was typical for the first CK2915 models. There are also 18K white gold hands and indexes with a Canopus Gold™ PVD treatment and the three classic Speedmaster subdials including a small seconds display, 30-minute recorder and 12-hour recorder, along with the central chronograph function. The tachymeter scale on the bezel has been filled with black “Grand Feu” enamel.
The Calibre 321 was the original movement used inside the Speedmaster in 1957. It also powered the watches worn during the Apollo missions. Since 2019, OMEGA has brought the Calibre 321 back into production.
The watch’s back features a further tribute to the collection’s anniversary. An engraving of the OMEGA Seahorse has been added to the inside of the sapphire crystal glass. Its eye has been made from a sparkling blue sapphire, a jewel that traditionally marks a 65-year celebration.
The Speedmaster Calibre 321 watch comes on an 18K Canopus Gold™ bracelet with a release adjustment system and is presented in a special wooden box.
