OMEGA Launches Speedmaster Super Racing

HighLifeChannel February 7, 2023

The OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing presents an all-new tiny device that offers a massive change to the watch’s precision.

Thanks to the Spirate System, OMEGA’s latest Speedmaster is fine-tuned for precision. This one-of-a-kind mechanism includes a revolutionary new patent-pending spiral which allows for OMEGA to achieve certified precision of only 0/+2 seconds a day.

The Speedmaster Super Racing is the first OMEGA timepiece to include this revolutionary new mechanism which is visible through its sapphire crystal caseback. The watch is a visual tribute to OMEGA’s 2013 anti-magnetic masterpiece. Around the dial is the distinctive racing style minute-track and a black ceramic bezel ring with the famous tachymeter scale in new yellow “grand feu” enamel. The watch’s 60 minute/12 hour recorder, directly opposite at 3 o’clock, also serves as a second time zone. The honeycomb pattern of the dial references a concept timepiece on display at OMEGA Museum which survived extreme magnetic fields of 160,000 GAUSS.

Providing the power is OMEGA’s state- of-the-art Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9920, a perfect amalgamation of the many milestones on the road to Spirate and certified at the industry’s highest level by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). As always, proof of this certification is provided by a distinctive red METAS card, which in this case includes confirmation of the 0/+2 seconds a day precision made possible at large scale by the industrialisa- tion of the Spirate System.

As the spiral is the most complex component of the regulating organ in a mechanical watch, creating the new Spirate System was a significant challenge. Therefore, OMEGA is determined to make the best of this hard-won innovation. The brand’s long-term plan is to introduce the new Spirate System step-by step into many other calibers.
