Omega 1957 Trilogy Limited Edition Set (60th Anniversary)
Released in 2017, the Omega 1957 Trilogy features three special 60th Anniversary limited edition versions of the critically acclaimed and celebrated Seamaster 300, Railmaster and Speedmaster. As one of the highlights of Baselworld 2017, the 1957 Trilogy offers a detailed reconstruction of three legendary pieces from 1957, ensuring that such intricacies as the tiny engraved logo on the crystal corresponded closely to the pioneering archetypes of 1957.
The Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition encapsulates the stark, mechanical beauty of the original ‘Broad Arrow’ Speedmaster. Staying true to its iconic design and featuring the 1861 calibre movement, this watch highlights the prowess of the 1957 model in a time where Speedmaster designs are constantly evolving. Prices of an original ‘Broad Arrow’ Speedmaster can exceed £70,000, yet this set offers the rare opportunity to purchase an identical model for a fraction of the price.
The Seamaster 300 60th Anniversary Limited Edition famously adorns the black, anodised aluminium bezel synonymous with the original 1957 model. Fine details such as the almost unnoticeable Omega logo on the domed sapphire crystal as well as the esteemed Naïad sign on the crown make this Seamaster a fitting tribute to the 1957 original. However beneath the allure of vintage aesthetics lies the cutting edge Master Co-Axial cal. 8806 movement, which incorporates many of Omega’s technical innovations in recent years.
Finally the Railmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition, described as the dark horse of the trio, boasts a distinctly vintage look and feel from its narrow bezel and large dial, measuring at 38mm. Originally designed for those who work close to electrical fields, this Railmaster incorporates an antimagnetic Master Chronometer 8806 movement, resisting fields of 15,000 gauss.
The popularity of the 1957 Trilogy Collection has been astronomical as each set had been pre-sold before release. This is a rare opportunity to purchase such an esteemed trio of watches, with this set listed as #210 of 557. It is believed that this set is only 1 of 23 delivered to the United Kingdom. The 1957 Trilogy is presented in an engraved Swiss oak box with each watch engraved with their indivudal limited edition numbers. Moreover the set includes a leather watch roll with six spare straps (three leather/three NATO) as well as a wooden spring bar changing tool. All instructions and guarantees for each watch are also included in this particular set.
