Cover Hyun Bin wearing the Omega Speedmaster '57 in stainless steel with black dial and leather strap

Speedy fans, rejoice! The Speedmaster '57 returns with a slimmer profile and trendier colours

First introduced in 2013, the Omega Speedmaster '57 watch mines nostalgia with its near faithful recreation of the original Speedmaster chronograph in 1957 complete with the original brushed metallic bezel and the broad arrow hands. After a hiatus of nearly 10 years, the Speedmaster '57 makes a welcomed return, this time with a slimmer profile than its predecessor, and endowed with an upgraded Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement.

Eight stainless steel models feature in the new collection, complete with four dial colours—black as well as PVD blue, green, and burgundy—and the choice of a steel bracelet or leather strap. We'd opt for the bracelet as it recalls the Apollo 11 50th anniversary tribute in 2019 and is equipped with patented comfort release adjustment system. It makes sense since the Speedmaster is also known as the iconic Moonwatch ever since it walked the moon in 1969. 

Fronting the new Speedmaster '57 campaign are George Clooney and Hyun Bin. Both actors personify the timeless charm of the watches. "George Clooney and Hyun Bin are the perfect leading men to showcase these values and prove exactly how the timepiece fits with the dashing style of today," says Raynald Aeschlimann, president and CEO of Omega.
