The Omega Speedmaster Racing Co-Axial Chronograph 40 mm 3220.127.116.11.06.001 is a part of the iconic Speedmaster collection by the brand, which has been a part of all six lunar missions. The timepiece has a 40 mm stainless steel case, with a fixed bezel mounted on top. Matte black aluminium has been filled in the bezel with a tachymeter scale engraved in yellow and gray. The case features a gray dial ensconced inside with three sub-dials showcasing a black “Clous de Paris” pattern. The sub-dials are for 12-hour, 30-minute, and second’s functions; and are located at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock positions.
There is a date window at the 6 o’clock position for your ease of viewing. The hours are marked by outlined indexes with luminous fill and the hour and minute hands also feature luminous fill, so that you can read the time even in the dark. Its needle shaped second hand and the two sub-dial hands come in yellow. There is a black minute’s track ring at the rim of the dial with the minutes printed in yellow. Sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating has been used to protect the dial. A black rubber strap with the yellow Speedmaster sign has been attached to the timepiece.
The watch is equipped with the COSC-certified Omega caliber 3330, which beats at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. It contains 31 jewels to reduce the friction and to make the movement smooth. This reduces the need of lubrication, so that you don’t have to get it serviced regularly.
Omega’s Si 14 silicon balance has been used in the movement, making it resistant to shock and other environmental disturbances. With a power reserve of 52 hours, the movement of the watch does not get disrupted even if you don’t wear it for more than 2 days. You can wear it while diving and swimming as it is water resistant to a depth of 100 metres.
In 1918, Omega was the timekeeper of the combat unit of the American Army.
Omega launched its range of Chronograph watches in the year 1957, under the Speedmaster collection. Originally, the watches in this collection were designed as a sports and racing chronograph, and not for space exploration. It was then selected by NASA in 1965 for all manned space flights.
This remarkable collection of Chronograph watches has been exemplified in several series. Featuring a timeless design, the rugged and reliable Moonwatch Chronograph, is a classic chronograph. The Speedmaster professional was the first watch to be worn on the moon and on all NASA’s manned missions since then. The Dark Side of the Moon collection is a tribute to the astronauts of the Apollo 8 who were the first to see the dark side of the moon. With a metallic grey bezel built from white ceramic, the Grey Side of the Moon has been inspired by the lunar dust, which has preserved all the steps of mankind on the moon. An updated form of the classic Mark II was launched in 2014, which features an illuminated tachymeter. Honouring the decades-long connection of the chronographs with motor racing, the Racing was launched. To commemorate the historic occasion of the first lunar landing, the Apollo 11 45th Anniversary was launched, with its case crafted from grade 2 titanium. Other compelling series from the Speedmaster Collection include the Speedmaster 57, HB-SIA, Skywalker X-33 and Spacemaster Z-33.
The first watch on the moon was the “Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph”, worn by astronaut Buzz Aldrin. The producer, director, writer, and Hollywood actor, Tom Hanks and the adventurer, explorer, and mountaineer, Reinhold Messner, have been seen wearing an Omega Seamaster Professional.
