    Wink Omega Museum Collection No.8, The Racend Timer

    All I know about Omega is The Speedy and I have never known about the existence of this piece until one day my dealer called me and said, "There is a beautiful Omega that I want to show you". I was skeptical at first but when I saw it ....

    ... I was stunned! I have never seen an Omega like this before and from that moment on, I told myself I have to have it, no matter what!

    This watch was introduced in the Basel 2008 to honor one of Omega's most distinguished contributions to the world of sports timing, the 1949 First photo finish camera, The "Racend Timer"! 1,949 pieces of this watch were produced. It is driven by the Omega Co-axial calibre 3201, COSC-certified chronometer and it has a column-wheel chronograph mechanism. The polished, clasped 18Ct pink gold caseback is decorated with a special Museum engraving and limited edition number.

It has a creamed opaline silver dial which is viewed through a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment and has transferred pulsometer (red) and tachymeter (blue) tracks.

    I am not so sure if this watch will make me a bigger fan of Omega and/or gold watches or not but it definitely makes me believe that Omega also makes great watches besides the Speedy :).

    Thanks for watching!

    thanks Andy :). It's strange because I enjoy looking at it only but not wearing it. Probably because the "museum stuff" has some effects on me .... Only wore it for the Wristshot and have never actually worn it for the past few days :)
