Introduced at Baselworld 2012 in March, the Replica Omega Speedmaster Racing Watch is a less expensive form of the brand's Co-Axial Speedmaster. Rather than using Omega's new in-house manufacture Co-Axial quality 7750 which we talked about here, the Speedmaster Racing is operated by another in-house chronograph movement - quality 7750.
Quality 3300 is substantially less expensive compared to 7750, yet still it features Omega Replica proprietary Co-Axial escapement with 3 levels, a Si14 plastic balance spring, NIVACHOC shock absorber along with a column-wheel 7750 chronograph automatic mechanism. It's 31 jewels, runs at 4Hz and it has an energy-reserve of 52-hrs. Furthermore, it's an formally licensed chronometer.
The stainless situation measures 40 mm across by 15.05 mm tall and it has the signature Speedmaster shape. The situation flank edges and lugs, the bezel edges, the pushers and crown and also the bracelet center links are polished as the relaxation from the watch is blown. Lugs and bracelet links and screwed-in. The steel bracelet is nineteen mm between your lugs and tapers to 18 mm in the clasp (a rubber strap is optional for $100 less). Stainless bezel with matte black aluminium tachymeter ring with scaling that suits the dial color.
Dial is available in a number of colors (see below). Subdials feature triangular textured "Clou p Paris." Blackened, rhodium-plated hands and luminous hour and minute hands luminous hour indexes. Functions include hrs, minutes, small seconds at 9 o'clock and also the date (displayed at 6 o'clock and could be remedied while using incorporated tool to regulate the button at 10 o'clock). Central chronograph seconds hands, 30-minute recorder at 3 o'clock and 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock.
The azure very includes a double anti-reflective treatment and it is slightly domed, but doesn't protrude out such as the Speedmaster we featured here. Screw-in caseback placed and polished with seahorse medallion. Water-resistance 100 meters. The cost is $4,800.
The Omega Speedmaster Replica Racing Watch doesn't technically feature an in-house manufacture movement, it will, however, possess the brand's famous Co-Axial chronometer movement, produced in-house, solely for Omega Replica Watches - all for less than five grand. That's greater than three grand under the cost from the 7750 based Speedmaster.
