Speedmaster 321 Design
A 19mm steel bracelet with flat links undercovers the watch, representing the vintage bracelets found on the 105.003ST. It’s a mix of polished and brushed surfaces and has a modern folding clasp. The Speedmaster 321,unlike many other recent neo-vintage models (and there are a lot of them), doesn’t rely on elements like fauxtina age spots or beige lume for their vintage cred. The next innovation, compared to previous watches regarding the symmetrical case is on the dial. On the other hand, it is faithful to the 105.003ST models, with a matte grained look, a stepped profile, with Omega’s logo printed on, and the vintage font for the “Speedmaster” name. The hands feature classic white batons, seconds hand is in shape of a diamond. The display and the look don’t differ much from the traditional ones for a Speedmaster watch.
