Omega is celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Speedmaster by releasing a reproduction of the first Speedmaster CK2915, crafted out of their own proprietary white gold alloy, Canopus Gold. Back in 2017, Omega released the stainless-steel Speedmaster ‘57 60th-anniversary piece, as part of a limited edition Trilogy set. But the new “Omega Speedmaster Calibre 321 Canopus Gold” will not be a limited release, although we do suggest joining the waiting list.The 38.6mm case is made of the brand’s patented Canopus gold, known for its extra shine and durability, and has been crafted with a combination of brushed and polished surfaces. The case was sized with a 14mm height and angular shape to look like the historic 2915 reference model. Mounted to the case is a matching gold bezel with a tachymeter scale etched in with black grand feu enamel and features the historic display with a dot over ninety (DON) and a dot diagonal to seventy. The attention to detail has even included the accent in the French term “TACHYMÈTRE”.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a full view into the working movement. But, Omega has added some unique features to this edition. Engraved directly on the crystal is the classic Seahorse with a blue sapphire as its eye, which is traditionally the chosen precious jewel to celebrate a 65-year anniversary. It comes equipped with pump-style pushers to operate the chronograph functions and a setting-crown with a NAIAD symbol. The modern trends to always go a bit bigger were avoided here to preserve vintage sizes. Instead of curvy lugs, we’re presented with straight lugs, which is another homage to the earlier versions of the Speedmaster.One of the few concessions to modern components was the inclusion of a sapphire crystal, although it was designed to mimic the classic Hesalite. Water resistance on this watch can reach up to 60 meters (196 feet).The dial actually deviates a bit from the historical model, as well as most of the currently produced Speedmasters. Although it still includes the 0.05mm step and can be seen as a modern interpretation of the original CK2915 design.The dial is made of black onyx which provides a glossy finish with a pitch-black contrast. It comes equipped with applied hour index markers, followed by a ring of white printed minutes and seconds markings.There are the standard sub-dials in their classic order: 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position. The mention of “Professional” has been omitted, since it only first appeared on the modern 42mm version. But, they have reinstated the applied Omega logo with the original font for the “Speedmaster” signature. It also includes the much admired broad arrow hands, which along with the hour index markers have all been filled with a white luminous, instead of faux-patina for a more modern look.
