Product Description

Add a true classic to your timepiece collection with the amazingly precise and rugged Omega Speedmaster day-and-date men's watch (model 3222.80.00), the latest generation that first started with the timepiece designed for NASA in the 1960s. It features the Omega 3606 caliber automatic movement, which has been certified as a chronometer by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Control). Only 3 percent of watches produced in Switzerland are "chronometer-certified." To achieve this highly coveted certification, the movements are subjected to numerous tests over a period of 15 consecutive days and nights, in five positions and at three different temperatures.

The watch also includes a central chronograph hand with 30-minute and 12-hour subdial totalizers, 24-hour subdial, and day and month windows. The large, round watch measures 39mm wide (1.54 inches) and 15mm thick (0.59 inches), and it's topped by a blue-plated bezel with tachymeter readings. The blue dial background has a circular Geneva wave pattern, luminous silver-tone hands, luminous tipped stick hour markers, and small second indexes. It's completed by a silver stainless steel link bracelet band that offers polished highlights, which is joined by a secure, push-button clasp. Other features include a scratch-resistant and glare-proofed domed sapphire crystal, and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet)--offering protection from accidental splashes as well suitable for swimming, snorkeling, and light recreational diving.

Automatic Watch Movement
An automatic watch is self-winding, and its movement has a reserve that must be at least partially filled prior to being worn. This is done by shaking and winding the timepiece manually. In order for an automatic timepiece to keep a reserve, it must be worn daily for 8 hours of active wear. This watch as a 44-hour power reserve.

How to Use a Tachymeter
A tachymeter is an instrument for measuring speed. It is a chronograph with a graduated dial on which speed can be read off in kilometers per hour based on 1000 meters distance. For example, the chronograph indicates that the distance of one kilometer has been covered in 30 seconds. The corresponding point on the tachymeter scale indicates 120, and thus the speed is 120km per hour.

The Omega Story
The Omega watch story begins in 1848, when founder Louis Brandt began hand assembling key-wound precision pocket watches from parts supplied by local craftsmen in his principality La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the northwest corner of Switzerland. However, the Omega name didn't appear until 1894, after Louis Brandt had passed away and his watchmaking traditions were taken over by his sons, Louis-Paul and Cesar Brandt. Omega watches have long been associated with glamorous screen and sports stars--the Omega Seamaster is famous for being the watch of choice for James Bond--with current ambassadors including Pierce Brosnan, Nicole Kidman, tennis player Anna Kournikova, and swimmers Michael Phelps and Ian Thorpe.

But Omega is more than just a fashionable watch. In 1965, the Omega Speedmaster chronograph was "flight-qualified by NASA for all manned space missions" as the only wristwatch to have withstood all of the U.S. space agency's severe tests, including passing grades for extreme shocks, vibrations, and temperatures ranging from -18 to +93 degrees Celsius. The greatest moment in the Speedmaster's history was undoubtedly 20 July 1969 at 02:56 GMT, when it recorded man's first steps on the Moon's surface as part of the Apollo 11 mission. Today, Omega is known for its rigorous testing of new movements, cases, and bands. Each new Omega movement is tested on the wrist in existing Omega models, while various laboratory tests are conducted to determine temperature-resistance, shock-resistance and vibration-resistance.

    A watch for the collector who prizes the ideosyncratic.
    Omega has created a quirky day/date automatic (a big deal in the watch world) that isn't the price of an automobile. All automatics are a little less exact than quartz as far as timekeeping goes, but my speedmaster only gains about two minutes per month, and since I like using it, I don't mind re-setting it from time to time.
    The actual user manual is on-line, very specific and clear about the controls.
    But if you have no fascination with the art of watchmaking and the "complications" of authentic, quality Swiss watchwork, go with a quartz; it's less "work"...

    Verified Purchase
    This is a gorgeous watch and looks absolutely better in person. This Speedmaster is part of the Michael Schumacher collection. The watch matches very well with sporty clothes, and even business attire. Its an attractive watch that looks its price, but not gaudy. The blue is deep enough to wear with a black suit, and the dials glow in the dark. It's an automatic watch so you will first have to wind the crown about 20 times to get it charged up and then wear it about 8 hours a day to keep the reserve power going.

    I purchased this from Amazon at a discount compared to the shops at the mall. It comes with serial numbers laser inscribed, certificates, box, and case. The only thing you won't get is the Omega authorized dealer warranty card, but it's an authentic watch sold by Amazon, and Amazon offers a 2 year warranty if you buy it from them, meaning they have to be the seller and not a Z shop.

    I love it.

    This is the most complicated mechanical/automatic watch I own. I bought this exact model a little over 2 years ago from an authorized dealer overseas. I remember debating over the blue versus black dial and eventually the blue won. The detail on the dial and inner dials is amazing and complement each other well. This watch in this color is unofficially part of the Michael Schumacher collection as well. Unofficial I think b/c there is no signature on the back but it shows up in his collection on Omega's website, at least it did awhile ago. There are 8 hands total: hour, minute, second, 24-hour, timer minute, timer hour, timer second, and date hand. This chronograph does not keep elasped time but it does reset to zero instantly upon button push. The month and day are easy to read but the date is difficult to read due to small arrow tip and busyness of the outer edge of the dial. I often mistaken the date markers as minute markers when setting time. The lume on the markers is not bright due to their size at the tips of the hour indices but they are duable. The reserve is very good when you wind it up. I've gotten 3 days before. I do have 4 minor complaints. One is the small crown. To manually wind this watch, you must keep the crown in. It hurts my fingertips winding it even though there are no crown guards. Two is setting the date. If you go past the date accidently, the only way to go back is to set the time back a whole 24 hours. Three is the rotor weight/awareness. You get a weird vibration feeling from the rotor rotating with sudden hand movements followed by a quick halt, like when you put your hand on a table right after you sit down. It can last for a few seconds. I do not get this feeling with Rolex or Panerai.Read more ›

    This is an amazing watch. The photo does not do the color of the dial justice. It is a very elegant blue that is nice enough to wear with a suit and casual enough to wear with jeans and a t-shirt. The day, date, and time are easy to set. It comes in a very impressive red leather case and plastic credit card style certificates of authenticy that match the engraved number on the watch. It keeps great time, the band is very comfortable, and the face is not too big that it overwhelmes your wrist. The only thing that surpised me is the funny vibration it does sometimes when it is winding itself. Other reviewers have commented on this action. Thanks Omega for a quality timepiece that will last me for many decades to come.
