Omega Seamaster Co-axial leather strap
The new Speedmaster ’57 Co-axial measures 41.5 mm across and on wrist it feels just about perfect. The straight lugs are a design that is borrowed from the legacy 1957 models and their strong profile looks excellent matched with either the bracelet or one of the many available strap options. With metal choices spanning 18k yellow or red gold, stainless, bi-color (stainless and 18k gold) and even titanium, the Speedmaster ’57 likely has a version that will be begging for your attention.
In-hand or on-wrist, it is hard to deny the charm of this new Speedmaster edition. The 41.5mm sizing is modern without being too big and provides an excellent alternative to those wanting a bi-compax Co-axial Speedmaster that is smaller than the 44.25mm Moonwatch Co-axial. Dial design is a mix of old and new, featuring hands that are similar to those used on the Moonwatch “First Omega in Space” model (ref 318.104.22.168.01.001) and the bezel is done in a matched metal brushed finish.
