The Cal 9300 Speedmaster ‘NON-Professional’ is as close as Omega gets to evolution of an icon. The famed Moonwatch still doesn’t have anything on it, and Omega should never try to mimic the icon of this century.
The purely in-house movement, the comfortable oyster-esque bracelet with screw-pin-screw layout and the 44mm case which looks more like a 42mm minutes after wearing, and the sapphire case back. These things all come together under a canopy of the most sought after watch which still holds its own after Claude Baillod of Omega, in 1957 made the first Speedmaster.
To start off, this is NOT the professional. The thing that strikes you the most about this watch is the two sub-registers rather than three. The third is cleverly integrated into the seconds hand. This is again a co-axial escapement (Swiss: L’échappement Co-Axial), has a Si-14 hairspring as with other Omegas of this decade and is differentiated from 9301 in that this doesn’t have an 18ct. red gold rotor, balance bridge, black screws, balance wheel and barrels. This set-up makes this, again, a watch on the low maintenance schedule.
This one, again, is COSC certified, so no worrying about accuracy for at least five years, which is guaranteed by the Chrono certificate to run in between -6 to 4 a day.
This watch clearly has the Moonwatch DNA but makes another bold statement for a company that is on the right manufacturing path for years to come. The price comes as a shocker especially if you compare it to the ‘Professionals’ but if you look at Chronos of similar brands with the same set of features and the evolutionary tech behind it, one comes to appreciate this watch for what it is - a new Masterpiece.
