Omega re­designs its sto­ried Speed­mas­ter se­ries.

ONE OF THE MOST REC­OG­NIZED CHRONOGRAPHS IN THE WORLD GETS A FASH­ION­ABLE UP­DATE.

Town & Country (Philippines) - - CONTENTS / APRIL - By Clif­ford Olan­day

can one trans­form the speed­mas­ter, a watch in­spired by racing and closely linked to adventure (it’s been part of all six lu­nar land­ings) into a time­piece for women? How does one weave in glam­our with the rugged DNA that has im­pressed com­pet­i­tive driv­ers since 1957 and made it one of the most rec­og­nized chronographs in the world today?

the an­swers are in Omega’s lat­est speed­mas­ter col­lec­tion. to up­date the clas­sic, Omega has tin­kered with its pro­por­tions, whit­tling its wrist size down to 38 mil­lime­ters, and also tuned its color scheme with the in­tro­duc­tion of the un­de­ni­able pair­ing of a gold-and-steel case with a brown leather strap. to cre­ate a chic, twotone look, Omega com­bines the blush of cream and a neu­tral brown in oval sub­di­als. sur­round­ing its tachymeter scale is a di­a­mond-paved bezel that al­lows the speed­mas­ter to go from day to night. At its heart, how­ever, is the func­tion­al­ity that cat­a­pulted the orig­i­nal model to fame more than 60 years ago, still boast­ing su­pe­rior per­for­mance thanks to its Omega cal­i­bre 3330 with co-ax­ial tech­nol­ogy.
