Omega is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster, Seamaster 300, and the less remembered yet cult-collector’s favorite Railmaster watches with what they’re calling the Omega 1957 Trilogy. The reeditions are staying true to the original designs but with METAS approved Master Chronometer movements for the Railmaster and Seamaster. The Speedmaster, however, retains the iconic manual-wind 1861 caliber that’s immediately associated with the “moonwatch.” Of course, all three will be limited editions, coming in 3,557 pieces per watch and 557 pieces of the Trilogy presentation box that’ll include all three replica Omega watches. Let’s see what Omega watches has to offer with their reissues of the Speedmaster ref. CK2915, the Seamaster ref. CK2913, and the Railmaster ref. CK2914.
All three fake Omega watches will feature the “tropical” dials fans of the vintage Omega watches outlet are fond of, and even an eclectic, retro logo on each piece – a nod to how 1950s suppliers each had their own interpretation of Omega’s logo. Each case is made of brushed and polished stainless steel with a design that Omega has updated for strength and to match the featured vintage-designed clasp with retro logo. I think the retro-vintage-style LumiNova indices are a cool touch – however, I can see some enthusiasts thinking it kind of takes away some of the “feeling” of the Omega watches that carry over so many traits of their predecessors.
The Omega Railmaster 60th Anniversary replica Omega Limited Edition Master Chronometer will measure 38mm wide carrying over all the design elements of the 1957 model with the addition of the Super-LumiNova for contemporary buyers’ standards. It might “ruin the feel” for those who are seeking an exact replica, but Omega decided to also add a contemporary movement, the caliber 8806 which is magnetic resistant to 15,000 gauss and has been a staple movement for Omega since their adoption of the METAS certification. This movement operates at 25,600vph and has Omega watches a solid 55-hour power reserve.
The Seamaster 300 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Master Chronometer (seen further above with the 1957 original below it) retains the broad arrow hands, bidirectional rotating Omega watches replica bezel, and triangular hour markers of the 1957 original. Omega introduced the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial back in 2014, but it was spruced-up and not intended to be true to the original model, with a 41mm case and a lot of refreshes and updates (you can read all about it in the hands-on article linked to above) that made it far from a reedition. Here, we get a 39mm fake Omega watches case with black aluminum bezel, caseback with iconic seahorse engraving, and original Naïad sign on the crown. The movement is updated, with the same caliber 8806 as we see in the Railmaster.
As mentioned earlier, each piece is available replica Omega watches on its own, with the option to buy the entire “Trilogy” as a set. Buyers who opt for the set will receive packaging inspired by the original 1957 presentation. This includes the iconic red-corduroy lining, and the retro-vintage Seahorse logo on the top of fake Omega watches the lid, along with two replacement straps – a leather and a NATO – in addition to smaller boxes for each watch.
