A word of warning to buyers of this watch. Do not buy it if the seller cannot show you the movement photo. Always look for pictures of the movement. As shown here this is 100% authentic Omega Cal 3220 movement, 47 jewels. The reference 3517.30.00 Omega Speedmaster 'Reduced' is a limited edition of 4000 pieces based on the regular Speeedmaster reduced. It features a silver checkerboard dial vaguely reminscent of the Speedmaster Mark II. It is powered by caliber 3220.

The Omega Speedmaster Reduced 'Schumacher' series was introduced in 1996. It consisted of 10 of 'Reduced' Speedmasters with bold dials in some of the following styles:

Yellow Dial related to Schumacher's early Cart and Benetton Formula 1 years cir 1992-1993. A common mistake by collectors / watch commentators is the yellow dial was linked to Michael Schumacher's first outing in F1 with the Jordon team in 1991. However the Jordan Yellow Benson & Hedges sponsored cars did not become yellow until 1997, year after this watch was released.

Blue Dial relates to the early World Championship Years. Michel Schumacher's 1st and 2nd World F1 title's in 1994–& 1995 were in the blue Bennetton.

Red Dial. To celebrate signing for Ferrari in 1996 Omega started the 'Schumacher' series. Schumacher took his first win for Ferrari at the Spanish Grand Prix, where he lapped the entire field up to third place in the wet. Having taken the lead on lap 19, he consistently lapped five seconds faster than the rest of the field in the difficult conditions and ended up finishing the race 45 seconds in front of 2nd place Jean Alesi. British racing legend Stirling Moss said "It was not a race. It was a demonstration of brilliance." The series was discontinued around 2000 ironically the year Omega discontinued the Schumacher Omega series he won his third World Championship after a year-long battle with Mclaren's Mika Häkkinen.

Checkered Flag dial. A limited edition watch was produced to honor Schumacher's 1st Formula One title with Ferrari. This was Ferrari's first F1 World Title since 1979. Schumacher won his third World Championship in 2000 after a year-long battle with Häkkinen. Schumacher won the first three races of the season and five of the first eight. Schumacher won at the Italian Grand Prix which equaled the number of wins won by his idol, Ayrton Senna. The championship fight would come down to the penultimate race of the season, the Japanese Grand Prix. Starting from pole position, Schumacher went on to win the race and the championship.

This watch has held is value brilliantly. In fact I would say its a sound investment piece as obviously its a Limited Edition series. Prices for this watches have climbed considerably over the past 12 months. If you was to sell on in the near future we do not think you can lose money. It will also make a great watch to pass down to a son / grandson one day.

To summarize this is a versatile, robust and attractive looking all rounder watch. It will suit most environments and would be a fantastic summer watch.The stainless steel bracelet still looks modern today. .

Will make a nice gift as the original Omega box will be included with sale.

Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%.
