Let's look at two specific terms: "1957", and "Broad Arrow". The number is the first year that the watch was made. And the name refers to a style of hands with a large arrowhead at the hour hand. It's important to note that the original 1957 Speedmaster, the 2915-1 reference (which is widely known), had this style of hands. The "Broad Arrow", then, is a feature that brings us right back to the original Speedmaster.Breitling Avenger Replica Any reinterpretation or homage that incorporates either of these concepts, or both, is inspired by 1957 Speedmaster.
No one is surprised that Speedmasters from different eras have a strong similarity. This definition of style was born in 1957, with the Ref. 2915. It is the Speedmaster that rules them all.
The Breitling Avenger Replica was launched in 1957 and was the first chronograph to feature a tachymeter on the bezel. It was also the first Omega watch to use Lemania 2310 calibre 321.
Ref. The 2915 has all the features that make it a classic Omega chronograph. Its dial, with its recessed subdials at the 3-6-9 position, the signature at 12 o'clock and the printed tachymeter bezel, which allows you to calculate the average speed with just a glance, as well as the solid screw down caseback. The 2915, in particular,panerai luminor base replica featured the Broad Arrow hands. This element has been seen sporadically over the last few years of Speedies' history. The first Speedmaster 2915 was housed in a case with a diameter of 38 millimeters.
The bezel with its tachymeter is a fundamental feature that distinguishes the 2915 and its descendants. The original Speedmaster was equipped with a metal bezel in a natural color, without the black insert which became famous years later on the 2998 timepiece. Omega called the tachymeter dial on the 2915 a "Tacho productometer scale", and it was the first time it had been printed on the bezel, not the outer edge of the dial. The rest of the watch industry eventually followed suit, such as the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona which was released in 1963. This innovative solution made the first Speedmaster an icon of watchmaking.
