SpotlightBling It On: Omega’s Bold New Speedmaster 38 Timepieces Shine Bright

Omega introduce eight diamond-paved watches in steel, Sedna and Moonshine gold, with two new dial colours to their Speedmaster 38 collection, sans the Moonwatch’s iconic tachymeter scale

May We Recommend

Omega’s latest Speedmaster 38 timepieces are the brightest additions to the collection, with a diamond-paved bezel framing the line’s new dial colours—olive green and chocolate brown. These diamonds are much larger than those on the collection’s previous references with paved bezels. In fact, the brand have done away with the iconic ‘Moonwatch’ tachymeter scale so that diamonds, measuring approximately 1.5 carat, give the Speedmaster 38 a brighter and more noticeable allure. Four new timepieces in steel and two each in the brand’s proprietary Sedna gold and Moonshine gold feature dials in green and brown, with diamond-ringed oval sub-dials.

Speedmaster 38: Contemporary Icon For Smaller Wrists

Designed for smaller wrist sizes, Omega introduced the Speedmaster 38 line in 2017. Design cues from the iconic and recognisable Moonwatch were fused with contemporary codes to set the collection apart from the 42mm Speedmaster. The addition of diamonds surrounding the tachymeter scale on the bezel, and oval sub-dials with a diamond-studded frame on the dial gave the timepiece an unmistakeable elegance.

New additions to the collection are decidedly bolder, with 52 large rocks on the bezel, instead of the 100-odd smaller stones that decorated the line’s earlier references. Diamonds frame the sub-dials at three, six and nine o’clock, with a vertically elongated oval date window at six, and the polished crown at three is decorated with a diamond. There are also two small diamonds on either side of the 12 o’clock marker on the dial.

Precious Metals Of The New Speedmaster 38 Collection

Dial colours on the new models are inspired by Omega’s historic references. The green takes after a 42mm Speedmaster with a green dial in Moonshine gold, while the brown dial is an almost exact replica of the brand’s De Ville Chocolate timepiece. Four green dial versions are available on steel or 18-karat Moonshine gold, with matching metal bracelets or green alligator leather straps. Similarly, the chocolate version comes in either a steel case or 18-karat Sedna gold, the pinkish hue of which beautifully complements the rich brown of the dial. Strap options include brown alligator leather ones or metal bracelets in steel and Sedna gold.

On the dial, diamond-paved rings surround oval, opaline sub-dials and the oval date window rests within the 12-hour recorder at six o’clock. Highlights matching the case include rhodium plated indexes and hands on the dials of the steel watches, or Sedna and Moonshine gold for the precious metal timepieces.

Behind the closed caseback, powering these timepieces is the brand’s automatic co-axial chronometer calibre 3330, which offers enhanced precision, shock resistance, anti-magnetism, and a power reserve of 52 hours.

The absence of the tachymeter scale on the bezel might be a polarising choice, but for most, the shine and allure of the diamonds more than makes up for it. These bold and beautiful Speedmaster 38 watches highlight the collection’s strong design code in colours and materials that make relevant an icon that once travelled into space.
