Speedmaster Chronograph for Michael Schumacher

        Emerged in 1848, in the cradle of today’s Haute Horology, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, in Chaux-de-Fonds, Omega is one of the most respected watch-making brands of the world, identified with unmatched horological accomplishments and temerarious innovative spirit, and surely we needn’t mention that it is the only watchmaker in the world that has manufactured a watch NASA flight qualified for all manned space missions.

        The brand’s collections have always combined Omega’s highly sophisticated design with ground-braking technologies, and through the years the brand developed privileged partnerships with many pioneering exciting fields of human research and knowledge.

        In 2008, in order to pay a great tribute to the world’s greatest racing pilot of all times, Michael Schumacher, and in order to create a remarkable timepiece especially designed for the worldwide, Formula 1, enthusiast fans, Omega introduced the new Omega Speedmaster ‘The Legend’ Co-Axial Chronograph watch, an outstanding timepiece animated by a deep admiration for the champion’s legendary achievements.

        Reminiscent of the engine’s roar, the design of the new Omega Speedmaster ‘The Legend’ Co-Axial Chronograph watch, boasts power and masculinity reuniting unique stylistic cues and high tech materials. The robust stainless steel case, measuring 44.25 mm in diameter, demonstrates a refined combination of brushed and polished surfaces; it is completed by a both-sides anti-glare treated sapphire crystal and it provides a remarkable, 100 meters water-resistance. The aluminum bezel ring of the timepiece is personalized with famous victories of the Formula 1 champion.

         The timepiece features a carbon fiber sporty dial which demonstrates two chronograph contrasting silver sub-dials: the 12-hours and the 30-minutes counters, positioned at 3 respectively at 6 o’clock. Also as an individualizing design feature reminiscent of the Michael Schumacher’s Formula 1 record– the 7 World Titles, we have to mention the 1-7 Arabic numeral hour markers.

        This remarkable watch accommodates the exclusive Omega 3313 caliber, a self-winding chronometer movement which provides COSC-certified supreme accuracy, as well as a 52 hours power reserve. The case-back features the individualizing “Michael Schumacher-The Legend Collection” engraving and, the charismatic timepiece is furthermore secured to the wrist by a comfortable black rubber strap that mimics the racing tire pattern or, optionally by a stylish Speedmaster stainless steel bracelet. Powerful and masculine, and bound to bring a plus of individuality of a gentleman’s wrist, the timepiece will surely be a coveted collectable item for Formula 1 aficionados who can recognize a high-class timekeeping companion, available for a fair price of $4,180.00.
