Omega Speedmaster " RAID " Limited Edition.

Oct 11, 2019,03:14 AM
 


Exactly one year ago, some people of the RAID ( the french equivalent of the SWAT ), a few friends and Antoine De Macedo ( one of the most famous watch shop in Paris ) had a trip in Bienne to meet the Omega Team for a project around a special Speedmaster for the french Police. 

The idea was to work from a normal / regular Speedmaster and to personalize it. 





9 months after, the first watches landed. 

Most of the watches will be delivered to the RAID, and only a few will be available for sale. 

As you can see, the seconds, the chronograph minutes and central seconds hands received a special treatment as they were painted in blue and red, and in blue white and red, the colors of the french flag. 


The case back bears the motto of the RAID " To serve without Failing " and the medallion of this police department. 


The watch comes with the famous steel bracelet, and a Blue White and Red Nato, plus another black one. 



The packaging comes with the medallion on the top. 



As you can see, it is a limited edition of 250 pieces. 

What is your opinion on that Speedmaster?

Best,

Nicolas.

It's nice touch with the colors of France's flag

B&R I think did something too for RAID? Maybe if the steel was treated into gun metal or darker tone, it'd be a killer!

My reaction . . . WAY cool!

The small bits of color are a welcome addition to the dial.

Firstly, I like the coloured details on the hands....

...and the back of the case is very nicely done. However, I’m always a bit dubious about these “Special Editions” which Omega seems to offer almost weekly and in this case it’s just a Speedie with a bit of colour and a different back. Also, I wonder if th...

Posts like these drive me crazy. I still need to add a regular speedmaster which I can wear on a nato or suede strap. And this looks so good and different (obviously).

Both I guess? Something vintage or just a regular new one.

Looks cool...

Best Mahesh., ...  

Thanks for sharing these Nico

My opinion is that this was a minimum effort on the part of Omega. Ok, that's not the problem for me. But it could have been a real crowd-pleaser IMHO if they went the route of the Apollo-Soyuz Speedmaster special edition from the late 1970s. In lieu of t...  

I hope so, Tony. [nt]
