About this watch

If there was a watch that was on the cusp of rocketing in value, it is the Omega Speedmaster Professional MKII Racing dial. The watch was introduced in 1969 and this example is one of the first. It was intended as the replacement for the original Speedmaster (ironic as both watches are still being manufactured, although the MKII is a re-addition)

MKII was very much ‘of its time’ in terms of design and has been emulated by a number of other manufacturers since. the MKII was the first watch to use Omega famous ‘pilot line case’ it was hewn from a huge chunk of solid stainless steel with starburst finish on the case it had a real wrist presence. The case had a totally new and innovative design with the crystal being integral and flush to the case with the tachymeter bezel being incorporated to the crystal.

The colourful racing dial is extremely eye catching and highly prized, The case on this excellent piece has its original sunburst finish and crisp edges .

This excellent example is fitted to an original Omega leather strap and stainless-steel buckle.I have also included a matching Nato style strap if you require a different look.

The movement is pristine and dates to 1969. If you want a stunning example of the now 50-year-old iconic then look no further.

possibly a great 50th birthday gift for someone born in 1969.
