This specific 2013 Omega Speedmaster Professional Ref. 3126.96.36.199.01.004 is commonly referred to as the “Tin Tin” due to the red and white checkering around the minute track which looks like the red and white checkering of the rocket ship fro comic Book character Tintin. The Omega “Tintin” Speedmaster was released at Baselworld 2013 and then canceled after roughly one to two years of production making it quite a Rare watch to find and ultimately collect. The red and white checkering around the dial is what is commonly referred to as a racing dial and this can be seen on a few Other Omega Speedmaster references that were designed to track split-second timing intervals which can be easier read due to the checkering pattern around the outside of the dial.
