The Omega Flightmaster was developed in the late 1960’s by Omega for the use of commercial pilots. One Omega advert from the period actually states " we made a watch for the man up front in a Boeing "This watch was designed to allow the wearer to view the time in two separate zones instantly”.
The Flightmaster was introduced in two executions, the first running calibre 910 with a plexi crystal, the second with with a deeper case and mineral crystal, this example second generation offers the improved calibre 911 hand wound chronograph movement which is recognized easily as it moves the seconds dial to 9 o'clock position and also by the improved anti reflective and anti abrasive flat tempered mineral crystal.
I am delighted to offer this completely original piece from circa 1972 hewn out of one solid block of stainless steel these iconic watches have great wrist presence and this original watch appears never to have been polished and all pushers’ hands ect are original and functioning correctly. The watch is in utterly timewarp condition, the case is near new old stock, the dial showing a wonderful even patina and the hand set, including yellow chronograph and sub dial hands make it an out of this world example.
A remarkable investment and a great piece of watch making history with a wonderful wrist presence.
