One of our readers just send in a few pics of his Omega Speedmaster Rattrapante (a.k.a. Split-Seconds) with carbon fiber dial.

The Rattrapante is a great, and at times mesmerizing complication. Playing with the various buttons and double seconds hands can be a joyful thing. The 3540.50.00 might not be hard to find nowadays, it is however quite an unusual watch. The rattrapante is a noble complication, not often found in Speedmasters. This one uses a case similar to that of the X-33, but with the extra button located at 10 o’clock and an awesome carbon-fiber dial. Great stuff.
