If you’re already looking for your own smaller version of the Omega Speedmaster, it’s important to remember that all models under this line feature the same small case. Only certain features have been added, such as a leather strap and gold accents on the dial and crown. In addition, OMEGA has released extremely reduced versions with date, day-date, and Moonphase indicators in order to diversify the collection even more. Here are some other models that you can add to your must-have list:
- OMEGA Speedmaster Reduced Ref. 3810.61.41
Are you looking for something to match your bold and eccentric personality? The OMEGA Speedmaster Reduced Ref. 3810.61.41 might be the perfect one for you. Thanks to its bold and appealing colors, this watch is an eye-catcher. Like the Speedmaster Reduced model mentioned earlier, this watch has a 39 mm steel case. Released in 1996 as part of the Michael Schumacher collection, it also has a black tachymeter scale that complements the tone of the dial and strap.
It is not difficult to distinguish this watch from the 3510.50 version of the classic Speedmaster Reduced.Although it also has a power reserve of up to 40 hours, this watch runs the automatic replica Rolex movement. In addition, this watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters, which makes it suitable for shallow-water activities. In terms of style, we have a blood-red dial and domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. The position of the sub-dials, and the style of the hands, are the same as in the models mentioned above. However, the second hand is orange, and the lugs and crown are silvered. There are also chess-like images on the edges of the watch, while the indexes and hour markers are luminous, which makes it a closet essential.
- OMEGA Speedmaster Reduced Ref. 175.0043-1
Here, we have another dress watch that is guaranteed to grab your attention. At the outset, this is a conversational piece, with a different look from the Omega Speedmaster Reduced3510.50. The OMEGA Speedmaster Reduced Ref. 175.0043-1, with the OMEGA caliber 1155, is for those whose motto in life is to always keep things basic.
Unlike its predecessor, this watch differs from the 3510.50 in a number of ways. First of all, its detailed bezel is silvered and has a stiff, industrial feel. Although the main dial is black, the sub-dials are white and the layout is different. Instead of the 3-6-9 position, the sub-dials are arranged 6-9-12, and the hands are all in black tones. In addition, the well-made platinum-colored hands complement the panda look of the watch.
The key point of this watch, however, is the middle position between 2 and 4 o’clock. It has a beautiful and subtle date window with a pleasing font. It also comes with a patterned black leather strap with two uneven line details on the face, giving it a refined look. The signature adjacent to the date indicator gives the dial well-synchronized. With these facts presented, you can never go wrong with this Speedmaster Reduced model.
Omega First Minute-Repeating Watch
Among the major horological innovations proposed by Louis-Paul and César, there is a watch with the ability to repeat the minutes. Perfect even for the visually impaired, this watch has a powerful movement coupled with an aesthetically-pleasing composition. However, if there is one thing that ultimately defines the brand, it is the invention of the 19-line movement by Brandt’s sons, which took the company to even greater heights. Above all, this circumstance led to the birth of the iconic name Omega.
The Omega Speedmaster Reduced is indeed the perfect way to reach the average consumer who wants a watch that will accompany them in their daily activities. While its features are often underappreciated, this automatic watch is truly a gem due to its great aspects and fancy appeal. As curiosity about this model grows, it will be quite interesting to see if OMEGA will bring it back to the market. While the brand has expanded its automatic watch offerings, the Speedmaster Reduced will remain an extraordinary piece in Omega’s exciting lineup.
