About this watch

The Speedmaster MK III was introduced to the marketing in the early 1970’s and intended as a bold statement moving away from the more subtle Speedmaster MK II Professional chronograph, which replaced the original and iconic moon watch (although all three models remained in the range until the late 1970’s and the moon watch has never left the range).

The MK III was the first Speedmaster Professional to be equipped with an automatic chronograph movement, the calibre 1040, which went on to form the basis of Omegas Chronograph range in various guises right up until the late 1990’s. It is a remarkable piece of engineering and was designed to have the same Professional application durability as the watch itself.

The MK III is an amazing piece of design, and the striking blue dial is among the hardest to find and most sort after variants of this model. The helmet style case was used across other parts of the range like the famous Flightmaster but nowhere more boldly than here. The watch has a real wrist presence 

This watch is in good original un molested condition and the movement is in mechanically perfect condition The 40 mm stainless steel case shows a few signs of age but most importantly hasn't been polished and so has great definition and crisp sharp lines 

This is an extremely rare opportunity to own a very special and rapidly appreciating Omega Speedmaster.
