Omega Ladies’ Speedmaster, Edition 2004

Derived from the legendary Omega Speedmaster Professional, the only watch to be worn on the Moon, the ladies’ Speedmaster has an excellent pedigree and offers a perfect combination of mechanical watchmaking art and fashionable chic.

The feminine appeal of the ladies’ Speedmaster is achieved by reducing the case size to 35.5mm and replacing some of the Professional model’s masculine traits with more emotional, feminine touches.

Thus the sober matt black dial and trademark tachymeter scale on the bezel of the gents’ model are exchanged for the luxury of mother-of-pearl on the dial of the ladies’ model, with the sparkle of 49 diamonds around the bezel. Coloured Arabic numerals also help to establish a clearly unique identity for the ladies’ Speedmaster models.

The models are available with a black or white mother-of-pearl dial, each with a choice of rectangular hour markers set with 30 diamonds or Arabic numerals in white, grey, blue or red. The hour, minute and chronograph hands are the same luminous baton hands as those found on the original Speedmaster, as is the Hesalite crystal.

The stainless-steel bracelet with a striated central section adds a further distinctive touch to these models, with the undoubted star in the collection being the model with red Arabic numerals on a white mother-of-pearl dial with a matching red alligator leather strap and stainless-steel foldover clasp.

The heart that beats inside these models is the Omega calibre 3220 self-winding chronograph calibre. With 47 synthetic rubies as bearings, it has almost as many jewels inside the movement as there are on the watch’s bezel and its luxurious finish of special waves, circular graining and gold-plated engravings is the perfect inner reflection of the watch’s exterior beauty. The Omega calibre 3220 also has a high-performance winding system that ensures a power reserve of 40 hours.
