While the Omega Speedmaster is more famous today for being the watch that NASA used back in the ’60s and ’70s, it's important to remember that this model started out as a racing watch and with the Mk40 produced in the ’90s, its clear to see that Omega hasn't forgotten.
The Mk40 is perhaps one of the more unusual looking Speedmasters, with a triple calendar function, day night indicator and a whole host of funky colours. Made as a kind of commemoration to Michael Schumacher, today it is most famous for being the most important watch the founder of Hodinkee, Ben Clymer has. Citing this watch as a gift from his grandfather and the inspiration that started Hodinkee, it has in recent times become one of the most recognisable Speedmaster variants. This piece is further cemented as a future collectable as Hodinkee worked with Omega last year to reissue the piece as part of their 10 year anniversary.
