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 and this is one of the nicest all original examples I have had for a long time.
The 40mm stainless steel case on this excellent piece has its original sunburst finish and crisp contrasting polished edges.
This excellent example is fitted to an original stainless-steel bracelet but also as seen I have added a matching coloured NATO strap which I think works great with it.
The movement is pristine and dates to 1970 making this a great 50th birthday gift for someone born in in that year
If you want a stunning example of the now 50-year-old iconic then look no further
