A few 12 months in the past, we celebrated the discharge of a brand new technology of the Omega Speedmaster. The watch represented a refined however significant evolution of some of the celebrated metal sport watches in historical past. It was a giant deal, even when many passers by took a look, didn’t see a lot of a change, and moved on. For others, the small modifications exterior, and large modifications inside, had been sufficient to create space within the assortment for. A small handful of us right here at Worn & Wound fall into that latter group, and the watch has remained part of our collections since launch. Right here, we’ll talk about one 12 months of possession, whether or not or not the watch nonetheless strikes us the way in which it did upon launch, and naturally, if we see it in our assortment for an additional 12 months and past.
The 3861 Speedmaster noticed a good bit of wrist time over the previous 12 months, a lot of it on the superb new bracelet design, although none of us may resist the odd material or leather-based strap each every now and then. It’s nonetheless a Speedmaster, in spite of everything. Whereas our motivations diversified, this was a watch that, quite unsurprisingly, held up nicely after a 12 months on and off the wrist.
