Stylish Omega Speedmaster MK II, Model Ref. 145.014. Stainless steel tonneau style case with original grained sunburst finish and screw down case back with Seamster inscription and hippocampus. Omega manual wind Calibre 861 movement.
This is a very original and fine example of a fast appreciating vintage classic that is becoming highly sought after.
This streamlined Speedmaster Mark II signalled the first redesign of Omega’s popular chronograph. Created in 1969, it extended the Speedmaster line with a brand new look and was available in stainless steel, 18K gold, or gold-capped versions with various dial and timing scale combinations. The MARK II, with its tonneau shaped case and enhanced readability, was also the first Speedmaster that did not use hesalite crystal. The tonneau-shaped case represents the late 1960s and early 1970s perfectly. It was a much more modern design than the classic Speedmaster Professional.
An Omega winding crown and chronograph pushers for stop, start and reset. Flat mineral glass with rear-printed tachymeter. Black dial with central main hands and chronograph seconds, subsidiaries for constant running seconds, chronograph recording minutes and hours and signed ‘Omega, Speedmaster, Professional, Mark II, T Swiss Made T’.
Stainless steel with original Omega 1162/1/173 steel bracelet
The case is in original unpolished condition, with some inevitable marks and minor scratches and most importantly, retains the original grained sunburst finish. The case back has rubbed and has the investable marks from being opened in the past. The glass is clean and without any significant marks, scratches or chips, just minor surface scratches one would expect for a watch of this age. The dial is original as are the hands.
The legendary Omega calibre 861 movement is clean and fully serviced. All functions work as they should, the hands zero as they should and it keeps good time.
