OMEGA Speedmaster Michael Schumacher “The Legend” Limited Edition

This limited edition version of the legendary Speedmaster timepiece was launched in 2004 to celebrate the record-breaking achievements of Michael Schumacher and the Ferrari Formula 1 team in 2003. Bearing subtle traces of Ferrari’s and OMEGA’s signature red and a highly distinctive dial, the Speedmaster “Legend” watch pays tribute to Michael Schumacher, the most successful F1 driver in recent times.

This commemorative limited-edition model has a 38.8mm stainless steel case and a brushed-steel bezel engraved with the Speedmaster’s characteristic tachymeter scale. It has a distinctive matt silvered dial with black chronograph counters and a white-on-black date window at 6 o’clock. Rhodium-plated, facetted baguette-style hour markers and an applied OMEGA symbol add a touch of refinement, whereas the Speedmaster name in red perfectly complements the sporty red-on-black minute track with ¼ second subdivisions. The luminous “stick” hands also recall the legendary Moon Watch.
