Omega Speedmaster Racing Japan Limited Edition 3570.40
When the OMEGA Speedmaster first hit the watch scene in 1957, it wasn’t meant for the moon; it was meant for the race track. Obviously, if your watch is good enough to pass NASA tests and go to the moon, you lean into that heritage. Once in a while OMEGA likes to look back at the original intention of the Speedmaster and release a model that is meant for racing instead. In 2004 with a limited edition of 2,004 pieces, the 3570.40.00 Japanese racing dial was released. Originally a Japan exclusive, it gained worldwide success. With orange secondhand, sub-dial hand, and hour marker styling coming from the Mark II Speedmaster to match the red, white racing track on the outside of the dial, this Speedmaster stands out from the crowd. The racing track on the dial has 5 ticks between every minute marker, making it easier to see down to the second when using the legendary 861 chronograph movement. The final design charm of this watch is the orange OMEGA logo, one of the very few times the logo is presented in a non-silver or blue color in any OMEGA.
With the limited run and stand out colorway the Japanese racing Speedmaster has become one of the more sought after Speedmasters in the after market
