Omega gives into its passion for performance and speed with the arrival of the new Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer.

True to OMEGA tradition, every new Speedmaster carries the spirit and design inspiration of the models that came before. In the new Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer, this is immediately clear when you view the dial.

The distinctive minute-track style on this stainless-steel watch first appeared on a 1968 Speedmaster model. Linked to the Speedmaster’s motor racing heritage, it returns again, this time on a matt-black dial. Other notable features on the dial include the orange markings and bevelled 18K white gold arrowhead indexes that are filled with white Super-LumiNova.

For this new Speedmaster model, the subdials have also been slightly expanded for improved readability and the 44.25 mm case is thinner than previous versions thanks to the work done on the sapphire crystal in particular.

The polished ceramic bezel features a brushed Liquidmetal tachymeter scale as well as distinctive orange wording that matches the colour of the varnished hands and the tip of the second’s hand.

Around the wrist, there is a black leather strap that contains a section of orange rubber through the middle. A milling tool has then been used to create micro perforations through the constructed strap that reveal the orange rubber inside. This perforated design provides the perfect sporty look and also has the benefit of aerating the wearer’s skin.
