You’d be forgiven for thinking of the Moon or outer space when you see a Speedmaster – аfter all, that’s what you’ve been conditioned to associate it with, and with good reason. As origin stories go, one could hardly do any better than the so-dubbed Moonwatch, which was famously ticking on Armstrong’s wrist as he took his “small step” from Apollo 13’s ladder to the rocky lunar surface. When it was designed, however, the Speedy wasn’t meant to visit outer space, let alone another celestial body. Quite the contrary – when it made its debut in 1957, it was aimed at the budding amateur motorsports market. The late 50s and early 60s are referred to as the Golden Age of Motorsports due to the surge in their popularity and accessibility, which in turn led to an increased demand for sports chronographs. What made the Speedmaster perfect for NASA’s missions was the very fact that it had been made to endure the kind of abuse that flinging a race car in and out of sharp corners entailed.
Even if it has been rather busy celebrating the extraterrestrial side of the Speedy’s heritage, OMEGA has always been careful to honor its true roots by keeping at least one racing model in its catalog.
The ref 3529.50.00 pays tribute to racing legend Michael Schumacher and his 2002 F1 World Championship win, which, rather interestingly, happened exactly 33 years after Neil and Buzz set foot on the Moon. The limited-edition model comes equipped with a 39 mm steel case surrounding a black carbon fiber dial adorned with several embellishments that harken to F1, such as the numerous red flourishes and the checkered small-seconds subdial. Features include hours, minutes, day, date, month, small seconds, chronograph, and tachymeter.
Inside, behind the commemorative engraved caseback, the Omega caliber 1151 is ticking resolutely away.
Our offering is in very good condition. Comes as watch only & its bracelet fits up to 18 cm wrists. Ticking per specs.

Covered by a limited warranty of 1 year, starting on the date of purchase.
