Before Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher changed to Audemars Piguet, he was Omega diplomat since 1995. Omega respected him with numerous pieces, beginning in 1996 with a Speedmaster Reduced model. These models came in various tones. The following is the yellow variant we covered earlier .
Schumacher was dynamic in Formula 1 from 1991 till 2006 and returned in 2010 to be dynamic till 2012. He became World Champion F1 driver multiple times. End of 2013, he had an almost lethal mishap during a ski trip in France. He has been delivered from the clinic since 2 years to zero in on revalidation at home. It has become moderately quiet around Michael Schumacher since then.
Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher
There several renditions of the Speedmaster that were committed to this extraordinary dashing driver. We covered a comparative Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher release previously, in this post . Restricted to 6000 pieces. This particular watch was acquainted with commemorate the sixth World Championship at that point. Underneath, the picture of the Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher ref. 3559.32 from one of our perusers, Raul.
Last week I ran over a lot more extraordinary variant of this watch however, the Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher Special Edition of just 500 pieces. From the outset sight, I didn’t quickly see it. However, after looking into it further is certainly unique. Rather than the ‘automatic chronometer’ sign, you’ll discover the mark of Michael Schumacher on the dial and his name. Speedmaster was imprinted in red in the other ‘Panda’ Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher Legend watch, while it is in dark here.
Besides the reference 3559.32 that was acquainted in 2004 with commemorate Schumacher’s sixth World Championship title, there is this reference 3553.32 that was simply restricted to 500 pieces rather than 6000. Despite the fact that there is generally secret about this piece,
it is to be accepted that it was promoted for Japan as the sixth World Championship title was won during the 2003 Japan Grand Prix race on the Suzuki circuit. We were unable to get an affirmation about this though.
This specific watch is 069 of 500, which is pleasant, as Schumacher’s year of birth is 1969.
Update: Just confirmed. These 500 pieces were done particularly for the Schumacher Ferrari team.
Not a Moonwatch
Needless to say maybe, however don’t confound this Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher version with a Moonwatch. Albeit the case and arm band configuration are very much like (and furthermore quantifies 42mm in width), the watch is fitted with an entirely unexpected development. Inside, there’s Omega type 3301 development. A development that was likewise utilized in the Speedmaster Broad Arrow Automatic line-up at that point. This development, in view of a F.Piguet type 1285 development is programmed rather than the hand-wound Moonwatch, and obviously has a date highlight. The actual development has been chronometer confirmed by COSC.
A Rare Piece
Just 500 watches is not a lot for a major brand like Omega, so this makes the Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher 3553.32 an uncommon watch. The Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher 3559.32 of 6000 pieces is now somewhat hard to track down ( , least expensive one being around 3300 Euro), this version of 500 pieces is by all accounts securely concealed in people’s collections.
We simply needed to show this uncommon piece to you, so you currently will know about its reality. So in the event that you each stumble into one that is being offered to you, don’t stand by too long.
