Omega has dropped a solid gold recreation of the very first Speedmaster, marking the model’s 65th anniversary in 2022.

Equipped with Omega’s recreated 321 manually wound chronograph movement, the 38.6mm Speedmaster Calibre 321 Canopus Gold is made of Omega’s proprietary 18K white gold alloy with a number of special touches including an Onyx dial, Enamel-infilled bezel numerals and a Hippocampus engraved on the inside of its sapphire crystal caseback, complete with a blue sapphire eye, a material traditionally used to mark 65th anniversaries.

The first Speedmaster – the CK2915 – was launched back in 1957 and is referenced in the design of this new watch through the use of vintage Omega logo and typography. The new watch also features solid Canopus Gold hands against its Onyx dial for maximum contrast.

Omega has also ensured that those enamel bezel numerals feature collector-favorite details namely, dot over ninety (DON) and a dot “diagonal to seventy.’

The watch is secured on a matching Canopus Gold bracelet with easy adjustment system built into the clasp and is presented in a wooden box inspired by the original Speedmaster boxes.

The Speedmaster Calibre 321 Canopus Gold is listed as coming soon on Omega, priced $81,000 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Vacheron Constantin offers prayers to Bacchus with one-off Grand Complication.
