It is well-known that the omega speedmaster ’57 replica 3594.50 collection has become a rather hot subset of the popular Speedmaster timepiece family since it was originally introduced in 2013.
In that regard, it is unabashedly a “retro revival” watch,whereas it is done very well and offers a vintage look with a totally modern package.Absolutely yes, it is a fashion watch, yet a fashion watch of the highest regard. To some degree,the Omega Speedmaster ’57 for 2015 is an aesthetic emulation of the original 1957 Omega Speedmaster for today’s Speedmaster fans.
Sporting Omega’s modern in-house made caliber 9300 Co-Axial Chronograph movement in a 41.5mm wide case that is slightly smaller than the largest available Speedmaster at 44.25mm wide,compared to the more modern “needle-style” of most contemporary Omega Speedmaster watches, the Omega Speedmaster ’57 uses more “historic” hands as well.
For a mainstream audience, this message likely works well and the attractive design of the vintage looking dial on this particular version of the mens fake Omega Speedmaster ’57 is most certainly a crowd pleaser.
Can you blame Omega for not going into additional detail about the watch and the history it leverages? I don’t think so – what I find most interesting are the layers of appreciation possible with a watch like this that can be marketed in a range of ways. You can enjoy the Omega Speedmaster ’57 as a watch nerd, or just as a guy looking for a nice looking luxury timepiece. Three months ago, I was strolling on Sunset Boulevard here in Los Angeles and noticed an extremely tall and prominent billboard advertisement for Omega, which happened to feature this specific Omega Speedmaster ’57 watch… as well as George Clooney. On a classic motorcycle in the desert, Clooney is riding along wearing the Omega Speedmaster ’57 and the phrase “George Clooney’s Choice” is the selling point. As a matter of fact, some people might like to have an original Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch with the 1861 manually wound movement as well as the more unique looking Omega Speedmaster ’57 with the in-house made movement.
They are both Speedmasters but have enough distinct elements to both have a solid place in any watch collection. Furthermore,the Swiss fake Omega Speedmaster ’57 has a lot of unique traits and,actually, can exist nicely alongside other Speedmasters in your collection.
