Speedmaster OMEGA Co-axial Chronograph 311.30.44.51.01 – Hands On Preview

We received a Speedmaster Moonwatch Omega Co-Axial Chronograph to go hands-on with it for a while. Although Omega refers to it as ‘Moonwatch’, it is not of course. When it was introduced during BaselWorld 2011, we covered it as soon as we could (click here) and could not wait to give it a try. It’s here since today and we will test drive it for a while before giving you a detailed report about it.

First impressions are great! The size is good (44.25mm), the bracelet is massive and tiny screws have been used to keep the links in place instead of pins, the caliber 9300 movements looks awesome and we actually like the two registers.

More to come.

    What a teaser! A few months ago I had posted on a watch forum requesting info on this watch and you were kind enough to reply. Now you have one – soooo lucky. Very interested in your impressions!

    The Speedmaster franchise has taken new direction with this watch’s movement and dial layout. It’s been a good balance of updates and keeping the look of the watch close to the original. 

    Thank you for the preview. Looking forward to our indepth write up.
