Omega Speedmaster's newest bracelet

Post by smellody » December 17th 2022, 5:16pm

The Omega Speedmaster is one of the collection staples that eluded me. Every time I look at them I am confused by all the models and differences.

Today, my friend Northwest Guy stopped by with a spanking new, just out of the box newest Speedmaster so I could assist him with removing three links.

The newest model is the one I want, I've decided. The bracelet touches are so nice and the new movement hacks to allow proper time setting.

Back to the bracelet. . . It has two end cap screws and a pin that must have internal collars as it pops in place.

I used a removed pin the remove the other pins and reset the pins before replacing the screwed in caps.

When you do these, make sure you have a new precision screwdriver as the screw caps are TIGHT! Also, be sure to apply pressure to prevent the screwdriver blade from jumping.

I just read an article in WatchTime that has made me smitten with the new damn Speedmaster ‘57 with a Panerai-esq sandwich dial…. Quick set date and hour hand, great lume (no, seriously), impeccably finished case, just slightly smaller and thinner than previous generations, on their new beautifully executed bracelet, and featuring that nifty coaxial movement poor Dr. Daniels schlepped all over town before Hayek’s “Big Horo” finally realized the old car enthusiast was actually onto something.
