The Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial Rattrapante

Omega Speedmaster CoAxial Rattrapante Torino Olympic 3886.30.37

The centrepiece of the OMEGA Torino 2006 Olympic Collection is this Speedmaster Broad Arrow Co-Axial Rattrapante. The five coloured rings form the counterweight of the Rattrapante hand, and the “torino 2006” mark in blue at 12 o’clock underscores OMEGA’s role as Official Timekeeper. The dial’s facetted, luminous Broad Arrow hour and minute hands recall those of the original Speedmasters; all hands are blued, as are the facetted hour markers. A black tachometric scale is engraved on the bezel; a red pulsometric scale circumscribes the silvered dial. The hour marker zone and silver-edged counters are highlighted with a rhodium colour. Below the 12-hour totalizer and date window at 6 o’clock are the words “Lap Timer” in black. The Speedmaster case in polished steel features a sapphire crystal and is water-resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet. This Limited Edition Co-Axial Rattrapante is powered by the exclusive self-winding OMEGA calibre 3612. This officially certified chronometer (COSC) movement has a power reserve of 55 hours and is fitted with OMEGA’s proprietary Co-Axial Escapement and the OMEGA free sprung-balance. The split-seconds chronograph mechanism, controlled by a double column-wheel in blued steel, ensures precision start, stop and reset functions for the chronograph hand, the split-seconds hand and the hour and minute totalisers. A vertical coupling also ensures no jump or delay in the chronograph hand and split-seconds hand when the chronograph is started. A hand-stitched brown leather strap enhances the elegance of this superb timepiece. Engraved on the case back: Torino 2006 Limited Edition (01/26).
