Omega Speedmaster Mark III Ref. 176.002

$4,495

Pre-owned Omega 40mm Speedmaster II Blue Dial, Stainless Steel Bracelet, Ref. 178.002

The Speedmaster Moonwatch may be one of the most recognizable watches. Not as widely known is that Omega went on to produce other models, including the Mark II and Mark III Speedmaster models. The Mark II was intended to modernize the case shape and the Mark III introduced the first automatic Speedmaster and the first Speedmaster with a date. The watch’s case is very similar to that of the famous Flightmaster and was offered first with a black dial, then later with a blue or a silver dial. It is a tall watch, with an ascetic that captures the 1970’s when it was manufactured, although a comfortable wearing watch at 40mm wide. This particular watch appears to have been rarely worn. The only apparent indications that it isn’t new old stock is a tiny nick near the seven o’clock position on the case next to the crystal, and a small indentation on the clasp. The automatic caliber 1040 movement is a respected movement, making this a watch that should please a collector.

Description

Omega is one of the world’s most recognizable luxury watch brands. Although founded in 1848, the company did not become known as Omega until 1894, when the company took the name of its highly successful new watch movement. The revolutionary movement used a single crown for both winding and time setting. Success followed success when in 1905, due to its commitment to accuracy, Omega became the official timekeeper for Swiss sporting events. Later in 1932, Omega became the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games. To mark Omega’s 100th year anniversary, Omega introduced the watch that would become one of the world’s most popular watches, the Seamaster. While these are remarkable achievements, the watch that made Omega a legend among watchmakers was the Speedmaster, the only watch to survive the brutal NASA testing requirements and the only watch certified by NASA for use in Space. It is no surprise that Omega watches are recognized today as spectacularly rugged tool watches hiding in a luxury watch.
