Earlier this year, Omega announced that the calibre 321 would be reproduced. Last month, the Swiss watch brand launched a perfect fake Omega Speedmaster which is exactly equipped with calibre 321 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of successful landing on the moon. Why is calibre 321 so concerned and praised?
Like many achievements in watchmaking industry, calibre 321 is the result of cooperation. It was Omega and Lémania cooperating to develop such a prominent movement. Omega launched calibre 321 in 1946 officially but it is a regret that it was discontinued in 1968.
During 1957 to 1965, the reason why calibre 321 was well-known was that it drove the famous Speedmaster. The famous Omega copy with black dial on the picture had just been equipped with calibre 321. In addition, it also provided power to many other models of Omega.
