How about a watch for Valentine's? And what about the Speedmaster for your sweet lady and you? The Speedmaster is of the most recognized chronographs in the world. When it was introduced in 1957, racing-heads were naturally drawn to its auto-inspired details, more specifically, the tachymeter scale, which has been placed, for the very first time, on the bezel, making it easier to use when timing races. It was a watch that screamed performance, big thrills, and get-out-there adventure—literally. This timepiece was part of the biggest adventure that mankind has ever embarked on: all nine moon landings. Here, two new collections to consider. 


 

For her, the Speedmaster 38 mm

The big and bold chronograph has been remade for women. Observe the smaller 38 mm size, which will fit the delicate wrists of women, and also (in the case of the Cappuccino model), the gold-and-steel case with brown leather strap, a combo that gives the watch a rich look. The dial gets an update, too, with a subtle two-tone treatment: chic cream on its face and more of that chocolate color on the sub-dials. And because women love diamonds, the Capuccino comes with a ring of sparklers around its tachymeter scale. That alone will make her adore you.

For you, the Speedmaster Automatic

Two things to note here: The Automatic is the next Omega model to achieve a Master Chronometer certification, the Swiss watch industry’s highest standard of precision, performance, and magnetic resistance. Also, this model is unapologetically sporty. Its steel body and black leather strap (with perforations that allow dots of orange rubber to peek through, as well as give your skin comfort in high temperatures) recall hot rods and their interiors. The Speedmaster’s iconic minute track from 1968 also makes a return on a matte black dial, while subdials are now bigger for increased readability. All this will come in handy if you are actually on racetrack. Maybe her gift is a sports car?
