Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow 42 Watch Hands-On

Scattered in this article and in the image gallery below are some images from omega Speedmaster replica uk' 2012 ad campaign for the Broad Arrow collection. I don't know who they hired for this and other ads, but when I saw them I was like "whoa....!" The fantasy loving Tolkeinist inside of me was like "holy crap, finally a wrist watch for Middle Earth denizens." With a name like " Broad Arrow" it is no surprise that they would take a fantasy-style medieval approach to the artwork for the ads. Though it was done in a way not like what you often see in the snooty and conservative world of expensive timepieces. Over the last few years hublot king power replica uk has reinvented itself a few times. I am going to spare discussing this for this topic for the second or third time, but you can read more in previous Omega Speedmaster articles I wrote in 2012. The last piece I discussed was the remarkably difficult to define yet plainly cool Omega Speedmaster Pulsion timepiece collection. For 2012, offers a new smaller version of the Broad Arrow watch. It comes in a few versions and is a nice choice as an addition, rather than replacement, of the previous Broad Arrow models. The Arthurian-sword-named collection always had those very cool sharp-looking Roman numeral hour markers and sword-like dauphine hour and minute hands. Very rarely does a watch name fit the design so well. Being a Omega Speedmaster, it also comes with a Knight of The Round Table suitable price. The new model is the Broad Arrow 42, which is, not surprisingly, 42mm wide. That is down from the lavish 45mm width of the other models. It feels good on the wrist at 42mm wide, but the larger-than-life style of the case and dial also look good in the larger case as well in my opinion. A thin bezel and wide looking dial help this watch to look and feel its largest. That is of course aided by the widely spaced lugs with a third lug segment built into the middle - for good measure. The non limited edition version also gets a sizable subsidiary seconds dial which helps out the size nicely. The limited versions come in jewelry form as well as the "Automatic Precious Dial" variety such as the pictured model with a blue lapis lazuli dial. I wonder what a bracelet on this watch would look like? Hmm... For now we get custom fit alligator straps in brown or black. What I like is that Omega Speedmaster offers a version of the Broad Arrow 42 in steel. There are also 18k white and rose gold versions (of course). What do you think of the "serrated" style bezels? I've always liked them but they aren't for everyone. As you can see, the Broad Arrow 42 has a variety of metallic toned dials to choose from. Though the more I look at it, the more I like the blue lapis lazuli version.
