It’s no secret that I am a fan of these watches, I think they have it all pedigree, history and style. What more do you want?
The Mk11 watch was introduced in 1969 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, this all original example shows some signs of age as you would hope for in a vintage watch that is 50 years old
The 40mm stainless steel case on this excellent piece has retained its crisp and contrasting polished edges and is fitted to its original stainless-steel bracelet
The movement is pristine and dates to 1970 making this a great 50th birthday gift for someone born in in that year
