Time after time, we have incredible watches popping up that compel me to give up on all the other luxurious stuff and pen a few lines on them. The latest from Omega is the Speedmaster Broad Arrow Christmas 2007. It pays homage to its distinguished Speedmaster family line with its iconic “Broad Arrow” hands but, with a movement upgrade and luxurious details, it enters a new dimension and category of mechanical superiority and artistry. Boasting of the latest advances in watch technology this timepiece has been fitted with Omega’s exclusive Calibre 3313 along with the self-winding Co-Axial escapement. Packing a power reserve of 52 hours and featuring a convenient date window at 6 o’clock, it has been officially certified as a chronometer by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, the COSC. The 42 mm case of the Broad Arrow is available in a variety of metals: in sumptuous 18-carat red gold, 18-carat yellow gold, a dramatic combination of stainless steel and 18-carat red gold, and more traditional stainless steel.
In the case of the silver dial model, the hands and the hour markers are made of blued steel; in the black dial version these features have been applied in rhodium, and in the brown, black, and silver version, the dial is enhanced with golden hands, outer ring and hour markers. All three versions of the dial, in sleek black, elegant silver, and rich, chocolate brown display the timekeeping and chronograph features in high style. Available in red gold, yellow gold, and in combination red gold and stainless steel, the bracelet fits all with a matching safety clasp.
