Watch Series: Omega Speedmaster Reduced

This is my Omega Speedmaster Reduced reference 3539.50.00. Ever since I have been interested in watches the Omega Speedmaster line has been one of favorites. There's something about the beauty and the history behind this watch that draws me to it. I love how the watch dial in most models have barely changed through the years. This reduced model holds true to the original look with the classic black tachymetre bezel, the 3 lowered registers and beautiful large sweeping seconds counter. I think my favorite thing about the Speedmaster as a whole is just the versatility of the watch. I could wear it with this dark brown leather strap and the beautiful made Omega bracelet it comes with for two completely different looks and feel. The reduced model is particularly great because of a few things that set it apart from it's big brother. First, it has a smaller form factor sitting at only 38mm in case diameter which makes it idea for smaller wrists like mine or anyone that is use to more vintage watch sizes. Second, it has an automatic movement that makes everyday wearing much easier not having to remember to wind your watch. Lastly, the watch has a rounded sapphire crystal display glass that makes the watch much more scratch resistant when compared to the classic hesalite crystal on most original Speedmaster watches. This piece is a special one to me because it was the first Speedy I ever owned and it's definitely the piece that solidified my love for Speedmaster watches both vintage and modern.
