*Movement & Specs: Caliber: Omega 3220 (the Omega name for the 2892 coupled to the DD module), Self-winding chronograph movement with rhodium-plated finish, Power Reserve: 40 hours, Reference: 3510.50.00, Hesalite crystal, Stainless steel case, Black dial, water resistance down to: 30 meters/100 feet
*Chosen by: Ron Corimer
*Why?: The Omega Speedmaster Reduced is cosmetically similar to the Omega cal 321 or cal (1)861 Moonwatch complete with Hesalite crystal, but this is where the similarities end.
The Reduced model uses heavily modified and decorated version of "the tractor" ETA 2892 movement as a basis, but the Omega engineers have coupled it to the VERY thin Dubois D├ępraz Chronograph module. This lends the Reduced it's very slim profile and allows the watch to be produced more inexpensively than traditional column wheel or shuttle-cam chronographs, without the loss of functionality or reliability. This, of course, results in both the "reduced" model's smaller size and lower profile than its predecessors. Additionally, the watch is commonly sold within the PMW pricing limit, often much lower.
