OMEGA revealed the 44.25 mm Speedmaster Super Racing – the first timepiece in the world to include the Spirate System: OMEGA’s fine-tune balance spring mechanism. This one-of-a-kind mechanism makes it possible for OMEGA to achieve certified precision of only 0/+2 seconds a day.
To create its latest Speedmaster, OMEGA had to reinvent the wheel: drawing on both the technical resources of the Swatch Group and the precision, stability and reliabity of OMEGA’s chronometrically superior in-house movements. The innovative solution was a totally new Si14 balance spring which makes it possible for the watchmaker to act on the stiffness of the hairspring’s attachment point through an eccentric adjustment mechanism located on the balance bridge. This new approach, based on the design of a high-precision articulated structure with flexible bearings, is a superb example of OMEGA’s readiness to create new ideas.
The stainless steel exterior of the Speedmaster Super Racing pays tribute to the 10th anniversary of the Seamaster Aqua Terra >15’000 GAUSS launched in 2013. Encircling the dial is the racing-style minute-track and a black ceramic bezel ring with the famous tachymeter scale in new yellow “grand feu” enamel. This bold yellow shade is also used on the gradient chronograph hand and striped small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. The watch’s 60 minute/12 hour recorder, directly opposite at 3 o’clock, also serves as a second time zone.
The watch is powered by OMEGA’s state-of-the-art Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9920. The diamond-polished and bevelled black arrowhead indexes are filled with Super-LumiNova which emits a yellow glow. At 6 o’clock there’s a stylish and regular reminder of the >15’000 GAUSS 10 year- anniversary: a “10” in Speedmaster logo font, which appears once a month in the watch’s date window.
The new Speedmaster Super Racing comes with a sporty alternative to the steel bracelet. A NATO strap in recycled nylon with black and yellow stripes, referencing the distinctive color code of the Seamaster Aqua Terra >15’000 GAUSS launched exactly 10 years ago. The presentation box also includes the recycled nylon NATO strap and a strap-changing tool.
