Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow

Aug 03, 2007
New Addition to Speedmaster Family
The most recent interpretation of the Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow is aimed at those buyers who appreciate luxury, reliability and a legendary name united in one watch.

The Speedmaster Broad Arrow pays tribute to the iconic Omega Speedmaster family, having inherited its distinctive 'Broad Arrow' hands. The new Omega watch has incorporated an upgraded movement and a range of luxurious details.

The Speedmaster Broad Arrow is driven by the brand's exclusively developed self-winding movement - Calibre 3313. The mechanism is based upon the Co-Axial escapement technology that guarantees utmost reliability and accuracy.

The case and bracelet of the Omega watch are crafted in different metals. You will find the Speedmaster Broad Arrow produced from unusual combination of 18K red gold and stainless steel.

The three gold models of the Omega Speedmaster watch go with the newly developed 'screw and pin' bracelet, a special system that allows to quickly adjust the bracelet to the required length.

Besides distinctive arrowhead hands, the Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow model reveals some other characteristic features of the Omega Speedmaster watch line, including curved and facetted horns and the bezel with tachymeter scale.

The dial of the Omega is available in three color variations - elegant silver, sleek black, and chocolate brown. The facetted 'Broad Arrow' hands are polished and provided with Superluminova coating for better legibility.

You will also notice wide baton-shaped hour markers and the Omega logo positioned at 12 o'clock. The chronograph functions are highlighted with help of a contrasting outer ring of the chronograph counters created in the material corresponding to the ones of the model's case and dial.

The Omega watch with a silver dial features the blued steel hands and hour markers, while the same timepiece with the black dial has these features applied in rhodium . As for the brown version, the dial reveals the golden hands, outer ring and hour markers.

Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow's Peculiarities
The Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow is provided with the latest technological achievements.

The Co-Axial escapement applied to the self-winding Calibre 3313 is responsible for reducing friction in the mechanical watch movement and makes lubrication less necessary, thus guaranteeing long-term reliability and accuracy.

The Omega watch-making company introduced its Co-Axial escapement technology in 1999. This important achievement in the horology field was initially used for the Omega De Ville range.

The column wheel chronograph mechanism offers the smoothest start to the sweep of the seconds hand when the watch's owner activates the chronograph. It also guarantees precision stop and reset functions.

The Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow provides the advantage of 52-hour power reserve, a date window found at 6 o'clock. It represents an officially COSC certified chronometer.

The Omega watch is housed in 42-mm case produced from a variety of metals. You can choose between the models produced from stainless steel, 18K red gold, 18K yellow gold, as well as stainless steel and 18K red gold combination. The case of the Omega watch is nicely polished and brushed.

The crown and chronograph pushers equipped with double gaskets guarantee 100-meter water resistance. The sapphire crystal case-back offers the view to the majestic Co-Axial 3313 movement. The resilience of the dial is reached due to domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal provided with anti-reflective treatment.

New Bracelet Developed Specially for the Omega Watch
The Omega patented 'screw and pin' bracelet, based upon system of discreet screws, offers a really easy way of changing the bracelet's brushed and polished links to ideally fit the wrist size of the Omega watch owner. The new system implies greater flexibility, at the same time improving the aesthetic look of the bracelet.

The bracelet is smartly integrated into the case, following the wrist shape in the most precise way. The bracelet with a matching safety clasp is available in the same materials as the case of the Omega watch - yellow gold, red gold, and red gold-stainless steel combination. You may also prefer the Speedmaster Broad Arrow created in stainless steel that goes on the traditional stainless steel bracelet inspired by the initial solid link bracelet that appeared in the 1960's.

If you are the one who likes the feel and aesthetics of a leather strap, you may choose the Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow in stainless steel available with a brown calfskin strap, as well as the yellow gold model that comes with a brown alligator strap.

I have owned my Omega Speedmaster for over 10 years, and I am not going to switch to another watch as I'm absolutely happy with it. It's a product of remarkable quality, and it's great it can be serviced, I've taken mine to the service a few times and after 10 years it still looks great and provides most reliable timekeeping, although I have worn it every single day since the day I bought it. During this period my friends have already changed dozens of watches. My Speedmaster is a true classic, it keeps perfect time, its dial is absolutely easy to read and the chronograph functions work properly.
