If there was a watch that was on the cusp of rocketing in value it is the Omega Speedmaster Professional MKII. The watch was introduced in 1969 and 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, 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 watch is running the famous calibre 861 movement used in so many of Omega’s land mark chronographs.
This piece is in remarkable condition, it has never been refinished and although having a few light wear marks on the case is in truly time warp condition. The movement is pristine, the case in untouched and the dial is remarkable with a gorgeous honey patina to the dial and original hands.
If you want an unmolested example of this iconic watch then look no further. It is complimented by it’s original bracelet and comes in its original chronograph box.
