If you are a world traveler with a number of dress styles that varies from an elegant, dressy look to a sporty casualness, this might be your perfect watch. It guarantees a pretty cool look, a little bit classic, yet modern in general, and what is also essential, it can be very useful on a trip. This new Speedmaster Broad Arrow GMT Co-Axial watch comes with a 24-hour hand that provides the information about time in a second time zone. (Also consider Omega Seamater Aqua Terra GMT Chronograph Watch.)
A broad minute hand and an arrow hour hand are elements that make a main difference between the Broad Arrow and regular Speedmaster Professional watches. These elements also provide a catchy name for this watch family that is a part of Omega’s iconic Speedmaster Collection for a long time.
If we consider the fact that the dials of most Speedmasters feature three sub-dials (look for exception – new Co-Axial Chronograph), it is a pretty hard task to find space for 24-hour track, keeping the dial easy to read at the same time, even though it is a large timepiece. Furthermore, there is no space on the bezel, because it is covered with a tachymeter scale. However, thanks to the great design, each variation of the watch has great readability.
Two Variations of a Dial
The watches with black dials feature oversized and highly luminous applied markers for even hours, as well as smaller, but also easily legible, Arabic numerals for odd hours. The forth, GMT hand has an orange arrow, while the sub-dials come in lighter shades, with white frames.
Two variations of the Speedmaster Broad Arrow GMT feature cream dials. In that case, hour markers are grey, as well as watch hands, while a little bit lighter shade makes the hour track and sub-dials distinctive and easy to read. The Swiss watchmaker has also used orange color to highlight some Arabic numerals.
Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow GMT Chronograph is a masculine watch, with a 44.25mm case, crafted in brushed and polished stainless steel. It matches either a stainless steel bracelet or an elegant brown leather strap, with white stitches.
This Omega watch offers various functionalities – three chronographs that track 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours intervals of time. Besides, there is a date window at the 6 o’clock position and a tachymeter scale on the bezel for tracking speed, based on distance.
The Swiss watchmaker used its most advanced, Co-Axial technology for this timepiece. The Caliber 3603 is an automatic chronograph with a column wheel mechanism, a free sprung-balance and a Co-Axial Escapement that provides greater stability, precision and durability. This officially certified chronometer with 55 hours of power-reserve has a rhodium plated finish and gold plated engravings.
