Omega Speedmaster Mark II

Baselworld will not open its doors before end of March, but already today I can offer you my first pictures of the new stunning beautiful Omega Speedmaster Mark II. Click on “read more” to see them …

 

This is what I posted January 14th about the new Omega Speedmaster Mark II. Click HERE to read more… If you are just to lazy to switch to my “old” story again, here is what I wrote…

 

She´s back! Do you remember the Omega Speedmaster Mark II originally dating from 1969? Yes! I am sure you will like the two 2014 replicas. They look simply gorgeous!

Minutes ago I just got this sneak preview from Omega and I don´t want to loose any time. Enjoy the short introduction and the very first pictures! More pictures will follow a.s.a.p.

We all remember the year 1969 it was a memorable year for humankind. For the first time, we broke our terrestrial bonds and set foot on another world – and the astronauts who took those first steps on the lunar surface were hadOmegaSpeedmaster chronographs on board, on their wrists and on their space suits.

The same year, Omega introduced the new-look Speedmaster Mark II, a timepiece with a streamlined case that was powered by the same space-tested, hand-woundcalibre 861 that powered the Moonwatch

In 2014 Omega reintroduces this classic Speedmaster Mark II and updates it to include an automatic movement and tachymetric scale that is visible in the most limited light – a first in the iconic Speedmaster family.

The polished and brushed stainless steel case is barrel-shaped and has a polished crown and pushers. A date corrector is located at 10 o’clock on the case. The watch is presented with a tool that makes adjusting the date quick and easy.

The dial is complete with the three recognizable sub-dials: a 30-minute recorder at 3 o’clock, 12-hour recorder at 6 o’clock and small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. A flat scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the matt black or grey dial.

That´s cool! >>> An aluminum ring filled with SuperLumi-Nova illuminates from beneath the transparent tachymetric scale.

The varnished white and black hour and minute hands are also coated with SuperLumi-Nova as is the central chronograph hand.

For Omega aficionados and Speedmaster fanatics who are looking for an iconic design with a bit of color, the Speedmaster Mark II with the grey dial features a fluorescent orange central chronograph seconds hand and a matching minute track.

The case is fitted with a brushed stainless steel bracelet, complete with Omega’s patented extendable fold-over rack-and-pusherclasp.

Distinguishing the new Omega Speedmaster Mark II from the 1969-watch that inspired it is the self-winding movement Co-Axial calibre 3330 equipped with an Si14 silicon balance spring and a column-wheel chronograph mechanism.

The Omega Speedmaster Mark II is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet and is delivered with a full four-year warranty.

Now let me show the photos I took today…

  3. says: BIG CHRONO

    Omega is pandering to the 1%’rs. They have yanked authorizations from 2 long time, loyal dealers I like, because they did not fit Omega’s new, stuffy upscale image. It’s price gouging @ its worst. Never owned a new or used example, never will.

    Any idea of pricing yet?
    Best! Patrick b
