Omega Speedmaster Racing is one of the newest watches from the Omega Speedmaster collection, a watch that is famous for two things: its great design and its affordability. Numerous authors and journalists have praised the watch for bringing the Omega luxury and prestige for a lower price as the watch is known to cost under $5000. Although this price is still not a great deal for the average person it does bring high end luxury watches closer to the average population that wants a well-known brand watch that can make them confident of the precision their watch has. Also, the fact that more people are able to afford a watch from the Speedmaster collection is definitely a big deal, when we realize that this is actually the most popular Omega collection.

The mechanism of this watch is very high quality as it features a self-winding chronograph movement with the popular caliber 3300. Even if this is a cheaper caliber, it still as precise and good as the rest of the watches and it comes with 31 jewels and 28,800 vph, with a power-reserve of 52 hours. However, another aspect that has made people crazy about this watch is the way it looks. It comes with a beautiful stainless steel 40mm case that is polished and brushed making it look even more luxurious and a dial that shows the unique design the company chose for this model. The dial has different color variations but we will focus here on the model with yellow and grey accents, a model that definitely makes us think about the racing track.  Omega Speedmaster Racing comes with a stainless steel bracelet but you can also choose a rubber one if you feel more comfortable wearing that. With its visually striking style, the watch is a perfect accessory for someone who is younger and wants to wear a high end cheaper watch. Some of the watch functions are: hours, minutes, a central chronograph seconds hand, three sub-dials, 30 minute recorder and 12 hour counter and that’s pretty impressive for a watch that is also very affordable.

If you want a watch that shows your style and love for speed and cars, but also doesn’t make a hole in your pocket, the Omega Speedmaster Racing watch is the perfect accessory for you.
