It’s been a while folks.. How’ve you been?
Our day-to-day business has been keeping us very busy in the past few weeks but we’re back with a vengeance! Please welcome the newest addition to the SpeedyWatches.com family: the Racing Japan 3750.40.00!
If you’ve been following SpeedyWatches, you’ve seen our post with the loose dial of the Racing Japan 3750.40.00.. Our friends at Ace Jewelers keep one in their safe, waiting for that one customer who wants to build his or her own Japan Racing Speedy. But today we’re not featuring a custom Speedmaster, but the real deal: a true Racing Japan 3750.40.00 sold in Japan in 2004 with the goodies to back it up.
As the only differences between a regular 3570.50 and 3570.40 are the dial and hands, the provenance is very important if you’re into such things. In this case, make sure the serial number is in the right range and that the card is stamped by a Japanese retailer. Extras like the hang tag with the distinct serial number are a nice bonus.. And if in doubt, an extract from Omega’s archives should do the trick. While obviously equally wonderful, to some of us the story and history adds that little something extra 🙂 .
