After several new additions to the Speedmaster collection, Omega is now adding a whole new version, introducing the “Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope”. What we have here is a new design, in a new size, with a brand new hand-wound movement. All this while still channeling vintage vibes and with four different dial options and two distinct alloy choices. The 43mm case can be had in stainless-steel or the proprietary Omega bronze gold alloy, both with an exhibition case back which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.Mounted to the case is a fixed bezel with an aluminum insert for a tachymeter scale. Except for the bronze gold edition which features a ceramic insert on the bezel.It comes equipped with a screw-in setting crown and two push-pieces to set that thin central hand in action over the various complications.It also features the classic Speedmaster lyre lugs for a comfortable wrist fit. From lug-to-lug the case varies between a mixture of brushed and polished finishes. Water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 50 meters (164 feet).Time is exhibited on three distinct dial options for the steel models, plus the brown dial seen on the bronze gold edition. In common all these stepped dials have applied Arabic numerals, followed by a ring of smaller minutes/seconds markings. But, those are the basic essentials. What really draws us in is the retro-inspired, multi-scale dial that includes: a telemeter, pulsometer, plus the tachymeter on the bezel portion.There are also two recessed sub-dials with a concentric pattern. A 12-hour counter placed at 3 o’clock, and sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position.This overall design was inspired by the vintage Omega chronographs of the 1940s.The central polished leaf-shaped hands and Arabic numerals have all been filled with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope
The “Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph” (References below) are powered by the new in-house hand-wound mechanical movement, caliber 9908 with 44 jewels and 28,800 Vph.It comes equipped with a co-axial escapement and column-wheel operated chronograph. Power reserve on this watch can last up to 60 hours, when fully wound. Mounted to these watches is a range of either leather straps, secured by a pin buckle; or a stainless-steel bracelet. This bracelet is identical to what we had seen on the new Moonwatch, which had polished mid-links and was secured to the wrist by a thin clasp with a striped pattern.
