Not only Rolexes have Day-Date watches, in fact OMEGA also produced a Speedmaster watch called Day-Date more than two decades ago. The plate attracted market attention with its colorful appearance. Recently, this dusty historical masterpiece has been reborn with a special commemorative meaning, but the brand is not a complete re-enactment of the model of the year, but it extracts the essence of its design and turns it into a supercar On the chronograph, people can think of the Day-Date style when they see this Speedmaster chronograph.
In order to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the well-known watch media HODINKEE, Omega launched a Speedmaster chronograph inspired by the Speedmaster Day-Date watch, which has a deep connection with HODINKEE founder Ben Clymer.
In 2018, the 10th anniversary of the creation of watch magazine and fashion pioneer HODINKEE, it was to celebrate this milestone that OMEGA launched
The 39.70mm Speedmaster Chronograph is inspired by the Day-Date watch and is related to the origins of HODINKEE founder Ben Clymer and the original Speedmaster ‘Day-Date’ watch-because it was sent by Grandfather Clymer A gift for him, and a watch that made him fall in love with watches.
Although it does not have the date and week display like the original, the gray / blue dial, 9 o’clock blue, black small dial, and the color and shape of the hands of the Speedmaster ‘HODINKEE 10th Anniversary’ Limited Watch can be found in the essence of transplanting the original
As mentioned earlier, this is not exactly the same reproduction. Although this watch does not use the sun-day time display, it still has many other familiar elements reminiscent of the original design. Includes gray / blue dial with unique minute scale ring and fluorescent Arabic numerals. The 9 o’clock black and blue sub-dial is perhaps the most important element to pay tribute to the ‘Day-Date’ (the original was equipped with the day and night indicator at the same position, and it is now changed to a small seconds display with propeller-shaped hands).
