The Brand-New Omega Speedmaster Super Racing

Recently, Omega has been somewhat of a discussion topic in the market. The Calibre 1932, the brand’s most magnificent movement to date, was presented last year. It demonstrated that Omega’s never-ending pursuit of innovation is still far from ending. Besides, this was the inaugural caliber in the history of the watch industry to blend an integrated chronic as well as a minute repeater.

This is also true of the latest Speedmaster Super Racing, particularly internal ticking. Moreover, the innovative Spirate mechanism, housed within this most recent piece and features a revolutionary hairspring, exceeds the standards of precision in watch manufacturing today. 

Generally, this revolutionary invention is accomplished by a long tradition of Swiss manufacturing. As most people know, an important landmark in increasing precision was the Co-Axial escapement by George Daniel.

Also, because there are fewer contact areas, little lubrication is needed, which solves the age-old concern of friction which can impair a watch’s precision. 

The Spirate System

A unique Si14 hairspring with a pending trademark is used in the caliber of this novel Omega Speedmaster Super Racing to facilitate ultra-fine movement control. A regulating system on the balancing bridge enables the watchmaker to adjust the rigidity of the spot where the hairspring attaches. This is a minor adjustment with an extensive guarantee: 0/+2 seconds of verified accuracy each day.

In addition, Omega is committed to making the most of its invention and steadily incorporating it into various calibers. Hence, the latest Omega Speedmaster Super Racing could simply be viewed as the precursor. The tiny hairspring also has a promising future, which is evident. 

Case, Dial, and Bezel

The Omega Speedmaster Super Racing’s stainless steel casing is 44.25 millimeters in diameter and 14.9 mm tall. It also has a 5-bar waterproofing (50 meters).

On the other hand, the black sandwich dial features some styling cues from the Seamaster Aqua Terra, a groundbreaking anti-magnetic watch from 2013. The distinctive racing-inspired minute line and a ceramic bezel featuring a tachymeter display in the brand-new vivid yellow Grand Feu enamel surround the dial. Also, the little seconds’ marker at nine o’clock and the yellow and black patterned chronograph indicator both feature this color.

The 60-minute and 12-hour registers are located at three o’clock on the adjacent subdial. Additionally, there is a date opening at six o’clock. Once per month, a sleek present with the number ten in the face of the Speedmaster emblem appears in this date aperture. The number 10 serves as a fun tribute to the Seamaster Aqua Terra’s 10th anniversary.

er 9920, which combines all manufacturing accomplishments, is housed within. Moreover, this automated movement runs at a speed of 4 Hz and has a 60-hour power reserve.

Bracelet and Band 

The Speedmaster Super Racing is available with a NATO strap constructed from reused nylon featuring patterns of black and yellow along with the steel bracelet. This reflects the Seamaster Aqua Terra’s distinctive color.
