To the infinity and beyond…

This year the Swiss brand Omega has reinvented the forbearer of all Speedmasters; Omega’s Speedmaster ’57 “Retro Dial.”
This tribute watch can be described as a thorough homage to the original, here below you can see a visual comparison between the 2015 and the 1957 version.

One of the most notable changes has been implemented to the dial, which is reconfigured from a tri-compax layout to a simpler bi-compax. The classic Omega piston pushers remain intact, alongside a brushed steel bezel, while the casing clocks in at several millimeters thicker than the original.
