[Video] Hands-On With The Omega Speedmaster ’57
We recently had our hands on the 2022-released Omega Speedmaster ’57 collection. Our in-depth article can be read here, but we also decided to shoot a video with the new Speedmaster ’57.
The new Omega Speedmaster ’57 is an upgrade of the previous version, with a new in-house developed (hand-wound) movement and a smaller case diameter (40.5mm instead of 41.5mm). Due to the new movement, it also has become thinner. In this video, RJ explains the details of this watch and how the former broad arrow models inspired it. The black sandwich dial and the blue versions are featured in this video. In total, there are four different dial versions available (see below). Each model is available with a matching leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
As for the specifications (also mentioned in the video), the Speedmaster ’57 is powered by caliber 9906, a variation of Omega’s self-winding caliber 9900.
