1957

“BROAD AR­ROW”

The first Speed­mas­ter

Called the “Broad Ar­row” due to its dis­tinc­tive hands, this was not only the first Speed­mas­ter, but it was also the first chrono­graph wrist­watch in the world with its tachymeter scale on the bezel as op­posed to printed on the dial - a fea­ture de­signed for the ben­e­fit of rac­ing car drivers.

1965

THE MOON­WATCH

First watch worn on the moon

When Neil Arm­strong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the lu­nar sur­face in 1969, this Speed­mas­ter model be­came the first watch ever worn on the moon. In fact, it has since be­come the watch that has served on the most lu­nar mis­sions.

1987

SPEED­MAS­TER AU­TO­MATIC

The “Holy Grail” for col­lec­tors

This was the first Speed­mas­ter that com­bined an au­to­matic move­ment with a Moon­watch case. For col­lec­tors, find­ing an orig­i­nal piece can be­come an ob­ses­sion full of dis­ap­point­ment, joy and de­spair – hence its “Holy Grail” nick­name.

1997

40TH AN­NIVER­SARY

40 years of the Speed­mas­ter

To cel­e­brate 40 years of the iconic Speed­mas­ter, Omega re­leased this model in 1997 fea­tur­ing a cream dial and front glass made from sap­phire crys­tal – which was un­usual for the time. Lim­ited to 500 pieces and exclusive to Italy, it was also one of the first mod­els with hands and a dial coated in Lu­miNova.

2007

50TH AN­NIVER­SARY PATCH

50 years of the Speed­mas­ter

Cre­ated in a lim­ited edi­tion of 5,957 pieces to com­mem­o­rate the birth of the Speed­mas­ter in 1957, this watch has a golden Sea­horse printed on the dial, rep­re­sent­ing the em­blem with which the Speed­mas­ter is most closely as­so­ci­ated.

SPEED­MAS­TER ‘57

Worn by Ge­orge Clooney

The Speed­mas­ter ‘57 is an in­no­va­tive wrist­watch that salutes its leg­endary an­ces­tor and has been de­signed to ex­pe­ri­ence new ad­ven­tures of its very own. The model re­called some fea­tures sim­i­lar to its fa­mous an­ces­tor. Ge­orge Clooney proudly wore this model for the in­ter­na­tional ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign in 2015.

SPEED­MAS­TER 38 MM

Sim­plic­ity meets iconic de­sign

The re­fined 38 mm col­lec­tion re­tains the fa­mous look and 60-year her­itage of the Speed­mas­ter but also up­dates it with a pure and new aes­thetic touch. For this ladies’ model, the di­a­mond-paved bezel also in­cludes a tachymeter scale on a brown alu­minium ring.

SPEED­MAS­TER RAC­ING

MASTER CHRONOME­TER

Re­turn of the rac­ing dial

The dis­tinc­tive minute-track style on this stain­less-steel watch first ap­peared on a 1968 Speed­mas­ter model, and it re­turns, this time on a matt-black dial. Other fea­tures on the dial in­clude the or­ange mark­ings and bev­elled 18K white gold ar­row­head in­dexes.
