The Swiss watchmaker did not experiment a lot with Speedmaster watches for ladies, as it was the case with the iconic men’s family. There is just one model in the ladies’ collection (Speedmaster Automatic Chronometer), but the fact that it is crafted in 9 variations leaves a solid choice for those women who want to wear striking timepieces with the name that has an important place in the history of watchmaking. (Read the story about the Moonwatch.)
Just like the original Speedmaster Professional, these watches feature three chrono counters: The 30 minutes counter is at the 3 o’clock position, the 12 hours sub-dial takes the 6 o’clock position, as well as a nicely legible date window. Finally, a small seconds counter is located at the 9 o’clock position. Regardless of the specific color of the dial, large, applied Arabic numerals that indicate hours are extremely easy to read. At the same time, they give a nice aesthetic effect, highlighting the beautiful design of the dial.
Four variations of Omega Ladies’ Speedmaster Automatic Chronometer possess another great similarity with the Speedmaster Professional. It is a tachymeter scale, inscribed on a bezel for tracking speed, based on a distance. For those who are ready to pay a double price for this model, Omega prepared five luxury variations, each with 54 sparkling diamonds on the bezel.

Color for Everyone
Every Omega Ladies’ Speedmaster Automatic Chronometer is crafted in brushed and polished stainless steel, with a large case for a women’s timepiece (38 mm in diameter and 14.7 mm thick). These Omega watches are covered with anti-reflective and scratch resistant sapphire crystals and they have solid water-resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet).
Each of these watches is powered with a Caliber 3304 self-winding chronograph, with a rhodium-plated finish. Fully wounded, this officially certified chronometer has a power reserve up to 48 hours, when it is not worn.
The Swiss watchmaker offers a choice among white, grey, purple and white mother of pearl dial. Speaking about bracelets, there are several available choices: a classic, three-row stainless steel bracelet or a crocodile strap in white, grey or purple color. Our choice would be the model 318.104.22.168.06.00, with a grey dial, a black bezel with a tachymeter scale and a grey leather strap.
To those who are searching for an extravagant look, combined with a strong touch of luxury, we recommend the eye-catching 322.214.171.124.10.001 model which features a dial and a eather strap, both painted in striking purple, as well as a diamond set bezel.
