Omega Speedmaster Blue Dial Men's Cart Schumacher Newman Automatic watch + Box. Used but in very good condition. A word of warning to buyers of this watch. Always look for pictures of the movement. As shown here this is 100% authentic Omega Cal 1143 movement, 47 jewels.The Omega 1143 is an automatic chronograph movement based on the ETA 2892. It features a chronograph module by Dubois-Depraz. The Omega Speedmaster Reduced'Schumacher' series was introduced in 1996. It consisted of a number of'Reduced' Speedmasters with bold dials - yellow, blue and red. The series was discontinued around 2000. Many collectors have the Red, Yellow and Blue bold dials to complete the Ferrari and Benetton Set. Michael Schumacher won all his seven World F1 titles with these teams, which is still a record today. This watch is also closely linked the Paul Newman and Hass Racing Driver Andretti. In 1997, Omega also chose Newman/Haas Racing driver Michael Andretti as a new ambassador, and helped to launch the CART Speedmaster Automatic with a blue dial. The affiliation with the motor world was very clear, thanks to the white racing track and the CART racing logo in the lower sub-dial.
This watch has held is value brilliantly. In fact I would say its a emerging investment piece as the watch was discontinued in 2000 and prices of this watches have climbed considerably over the past 12 months. It will make a great watch to pass down to a son / grandson one day. To summarize this is a versatile, robust and attractive sporty looking watch.
It will suit most environments and would be a fantastic summer watch. Will make a nice gift as the Omega box will be included with sale.The original strap and buckle was well used so a new blue leather strap of high quality has been added. We will still enclose the original strap. 50.00 m (not guaranteed anymore). They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Please see our other luxury watches in our store.
