The Speedmaster Racing is a modern update of the classic Omega Speedmaster, with added specification.  Model reference 178.2061 or 326.


From the serial number on the rear of the bottom right lug we can accurately date this watch to being made after 2011, and that is the latest we can date Omega watches without a factory Extract from the Archives.  But this model only has one appearance in the Wristwatch Annual books, and that is 2013.


For many people the Speedmaster will only ever be a 42mm manual wind chronograph that was worn on the moon.  But this is like saying the only Porsche 911 is a 1970 911S – they are both great, but what if you demand more?  This is where the Racing models fill the gap.  You have a slight smaller case at 40mm vs 42mm, but it is topped with sapphire crystal rather than hesalite.  The biggest upgrade is in the calibre 3330 movement – automatic instead of manual, and with quick set date (operated by the pusher at 10).  It also has the Co-Axial escapement that was designed by George Daniels and is exclusive to Omega.  That is all working well.  The rubber strap is the original and is in great condition, and was unique to the Racing models with the yellow Speedmaster writing on the strap.  It isn’t the longest, and is shown in the photos on the last hole on the Omega folding clasp.  The strap doesn’t allow us to lay the watch flat, hence the photos without the strap fitted.  The case has a few light scratches and marks, but is unpolished.  The dial looks black in some lights and grey in others, with the yellow chrono hands providing excellent contrast.
