OMEGA Speedmaster SuperRacing. The new fine-tune Spirate System boosts accuracy to 0/+2 sec./day.

Omega’s latest Speedmaster is fine-tuned for precision with the new Spirate System, which includes a revolutionary patent-pending spiral that allows for ultra-fine rate adjustments. Thanks to this one-of- a-kind mechanism, it is now possible for Omega to achieve certified precision of only 0/+2 seconds a day and this is a watchmaking SENSATION.

To meet these narrow targets, Omega had to quite literally reinvent the wheel: drawing on both the technical resources of the Swatch Group and the precision, stability and reliability of Omega’s chronometrically superior in-house movements.

The innovative solution was a totally new Si14 balance spring which allows the watchmaker to act on the stiffness of the hairspring’s attachment point through an eccentric adjustment mechanism located on the balance bridge. This new approach, based on the design of a high precision articulated structure with flexible bearings, is another superb example of Omega’s willingness to run with new ideas…

The first timepiece to include Omega’s fine-tune Spirate System is the Speedmaster SuperRacing in stainless steel. A visual tribute to Omega’s 2013 anti-magnetic masterpiece which offers a clear view of the new mechanism through the sapphire crystal case-back.

Circling 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. This bold yellow shade, featured on the Seamaster Aqua Terra 15’000+ GAUSS of 2013, is also used on the gradient chronograph hand and striped small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. The watch’s 60 minute/12 hour recorder, directly opposite at 3 o’clock, also serves as a second zone-time.
The honeycomb pattern of the dial references a concept timepiece on display at OMEGA Museum which survived extreme magnetic fields of 160,000 GAUSS.
The chronograph is powered by 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 industrialisation of the Spirate System.

The Speedmaster will be sold in the second half of 2023 for 10,200 CHF excluding VAT (we mentioned including VAT in the video, but this is unfortunately not correct. Sorry!)
