  • Catalogue Essay

    Omega released the Speedmaster “Racing” ref. 3750.40 in 2004 made as an unnumbered limited edition of 2,004 examples exclusive to the Japanese market. At immediate glance one may notice the intrinsic resemblance to those examples from the late 1960s, however with refreshed and refined colours to cater towards the contemporary demand. The dial is blessed with an attractive crayon grey base with white, neon orange and crimson red accents to complete the frame. Nicknamed the “Racing” dial, the minute track mimics the likes of the checkered finishing line of the racetrack. With a harmonious balance of all the colours featured on the dial, it is no wonder the Omega Speedmaster “Racing” is so well received, and the “Racing” Japan is perhaps the most attractive out of all.

    The present example Omega Speedmaster Japan Racing from circa 2006 is offered with its original warranty stamped by its local Japanese retailer and its presentation box.

  • Artist Biography

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
