As we all know, the Omega Speedmaster is a favourite among many watch collectors and fanatics. It has earnt its place in horological history and has had more iterations one can keep with. For the sake of keeping this on topic, we will start in 1969.
During the same year Omega won the race to the moon, they released the Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II which was powered by the same movement used in the reference 145.022, the calibre 861. The calibre 861 remained in production until its successor, the calibre 1861 took its place around the mid to late 1990s.
Here we have one of the more obscure examples of a Mark II, which was released in the years following 1969, between 1970 1972. This piece features a full gold-plated barrel case with a champagne dial and maroon tachymeter track. The two-tone triple register champagne dial has remained in amazing condition, with clear type and fantastic definition of the subsidiary dials. The dial is marked T SWISS MADE T under the 6 oclock hour marker.
The dial also showcases faceted gold hour markers, pencil hands and a maroon tachymeter track, which not only frames the dial but sets the design ions above and beyond your everyday gold plated chronograph. The 41mm gold plated barrel case still has its original brushed finish with twin pump pushers and an omega crown.
Unfortunately, this model can fall victim to oxidation as you can see in the images above, the right side of the case is showing damage. The screw down stainless steel, Speedmaster Seahorse case back houses the manually wound Lemania based cal. 861 movement which is in a clear condition with all the chronograph functions working correctly and running well.
The watch has been paired with a Champion made, gold plated Omega bracelet. Model: Speedmaster Professional Mark II.
