Replica Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow 178.0022 has the almost the same case dimensions as the Speedmaster Professional, a diameter of 42mm. However, the Broad Arrow is a bit thicker due to the automatic movement. The dial with a date aperture at 6 o’clock and a bit different printing.
The sub dial at 9 o’clock, which is the regular seconds indicator, had a cross printed on it. The hands of the watch refer to the very first Broad Arrow Speedmaster of 1957, the CK2915.
The caseback has the Seamonster logo embossed and also reads ‘Broad Arrow’. The Speedy Broad Arrow was available on leather strap or with a stainless steel bracelet. It was in fact the same bracelet (ref. 1998/887) as used on the regular Speedy Professional. The combination as shown here has the original OMEGA alligator strap and folding clasp. The folding clasp is the earlier generation model, without the release buttons. These first folding clasps are known to fail at some point, but a watch maker should be able to fix this for you. The Broad Arrow Speedmaster 178.0022 was also available with a black dial.
