Similar to the Speedmaster Racing that Omega debuted in 2012, the new Speedmaster 38 Co-Axial is powered by in-house caliber 3300 and offered a price point under five thousand dollars.

Distinguished by horizontal oval subdials and a vertical oval date display, the dial takes inspiration from several De Ville timepieces.

The steel case measures 38 mm in diameter, with an 18 mm lug width, and features a mixture of brushed and polished surfaces. A box-type sapphire crystal protects the dial and is surrounded by a fixed tachymeter bezel. A seahorse medallion is stamped on the screw-in solid steel caseback. Water-resistance is 100 meters.

Inside, is Omega’s entry-level in-house automatic, caliber 3300 which beats at 4Hz and features a Si14 silicon balance spring, free sprung balance wheel, a column wheel, and NIVACHOC shock absorber. The 31 jewels Co-Axial movement has a 52-hour power reserve and is an officially certified chronometer.

There are 14 references starting at $4,750 on a leather strap.
