About this watch

Finding good original Mk1 Flightmaster is getting harder each year so I was delighted to find this example which even comes on the original and equally hard to find Omega 1159 bracelet with correct 155 end links.

The first generation Flightmaster shares very little with its MK2 and 3 brothers even the cal 910 manual winding movement was only used in this short-lived model. The 1st generation also has a 24-hour day night subdial at 9 O’clock which is half green and half black and is unique to this model. As you can see the original A5 dial on this great piece has aged to a tropical light brown which gives the watch a unique appearance.

The Mk 1 was introduced in 1969 and replaced in 1971 meaning far fewer of these exist than the subsequent variants, the serial number on this example is correct for 1969.

Those with sharper eyes than me will also notice that the case on the MK1 is slightly thinner than the following variants most noticeable is the thinner profile over the lugs. Although the paint finish on the pushers has worn off I have left them as they came to me so as keep it original

The watch is fitted to the correct Omega bracelet and is functioning correctly and like all our pieces comes with a full 12 months mechanical guarantee.
