THE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER RACING

When the Speedmaster was introduced in 1957, it was valued by motorsport and rally drivers for its chronograph performance and for its design aesthetics. In fact, its dial design was inspired by the dashboards of Italian cars. Nearly a decade before it made a name for itself in space, the Speedmaster had established itself as one of the world’s favourite chronographs.

The OMEGA Speedmaster was the first chronograph whose tachymetric scale was repositioned from the dial to the bezel. This innovation made it particularly easy to read the elapsed time and the watch became an immediate hit with competitive drivers.

"...before the Speedmaster was worn on the Moon or at the North and South Poles, it was found on the wrists of men and women driving high-performance automobiles."
