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.
This example is in great original condition and as you can see in the images the sub dials have all aged to a rich chocolate brown colour making this piece completely unique
Hewn out of one solid block of stainless steel these iconic watches have great wrist presence, I am delighted to offer this stunning example from circa 1971 which I think would make a great 50th birthday gift for someone .
The Cal 911 movement comes fully serviced and all functions perform correctly and the watch is guaranteed for 12 months.
A remarkable investment and a great piece of watch making history with a wonderful wrist presence.
