There are only a handful of watch brands that can truly claim to be in the “elite” league of watch producers. Omega has long been among that class, as they have been a leading producer of chronographs for several decades and continue to be leaders in that field, combining innovative technology with superior craftsmanship. This has resulted in the brand developing a loyal fan base that has seen them through both highs and lows over the last several decades.
One of the premiere examples of their work is the Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph. It offers an excellent display of the unique combination of technical prowess and aesthetic cleanness that both watch collectors and the horological press have come to expect from the brand.
Below, we will examine this watch, model number 318.104.22.168.06.001, from several different vantage points. This will include examining the technical specifications of the watch, followed by a brief analysis of its stylistic attributes. Finally, the article will conclude with an overview of our collection of elegant rubber watch straps for this piece.
What Are The Technical Specifics of The Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph 322.214.171.124.06.001?
The Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph measures a case size of 44.25 mm. This is larger than the industry standard of 41 mm. It has a between-lug measurement of 21 mm. The casing is made from premium-grade stainless steel.
One of the highlights of this watch is its excellent movement. It is powered by the Omega 9900 caliber, which is a METAS-certified chronograph. This certification is extremely difficult to receive, and only a small percentage of watches that submit to be tested receive it.
The watch has a power reserve of 60 hours and is water resistant for up to 167 feet.
How Does the Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph 3126.96.36.199.06.001 Fare in Terms of Its Design?
The most immediately striking thing about the Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph is its elegant color palette. The combination of orange, white, and silver, in conjunction with the black bezel, offers up a dial that is both exciting and refined at the same time.
Notably, the face of the watch has an extra orange hand on it, which is meant to keep track of seconds instead of minutes or hours. Because these watches have their origins in endurance racing events, this stands to reason.
