Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer

Postby Racer-X » July 31st 2017, 8:17pm

by Martin Green "While the Omega Speedmaster has made most of its reputation in space, it is of course also chronograph, just as capable of measuring lap times at it is to measure an orbit around the earth. This becomes especially clear with the Speedmaster Racing, which Omega relaunched this year at Baselworld.

One of the hallmark features of this type of Speedmaster is the “racing dial” which consists out of an “alternating” minute track, which Omega first introduced on the Speedmaster in 1968, aimed to increase the readability of the watch. It might be a detail, but it does give the watch a subtly different look than the moon watch."

Yup. Harder right now than Lance Armstrong's tungsten ball.

I don't know that the racing dial is necessarily more legible but it sure is great looking.

I might have to dip into my old man money for one of these.
