We’ve been posting quite a few modern Speedmasters in the last few days, so we thought it was about time for a proper vintage Speedmaster post. We have made a selection of Speedmasters available at a few of our favourite vintage watch dealers. Enjoy the show but remember – the final judgement is up to you! Caveat emptor.
Omega Speedmaster Ref. 105.003-65 – 1965 “tropical”
Omega Speedmaster 125
Our next stop is at Cars&Watches right here in The Netherlands. For sale is the Omega Speedmaster 125, the model made to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Omega brand in 1974 as a limited edition run of 2000 pieces. It is supposed to be the first automatic chronograph with COSC-certification, as indicated by the Chronometer on the dial.
Omega Speedmaster Mark II
Omega’s recent attempt at the Speedmaster Mark II is sans doubt impressive. They managed to create a thoroughly modern watch that harks back to days gone by, without it appearing overly sentimental. But on our next stop, Matthew Bain in Miami offers the watch that inspired Omega’s BaselWorld 2014 release – the Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II 145.014.
Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022 Silver Dial
Next stop Italy: Tempus Orologi. For sale is this Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022 with an unusual silver dial. While most likely retro-fitted, it is quite the looker.
Omega Speedmaster 105.003 ‘Blue Dial’
The descriptions of The Beautiful Watch in wonderful Paris are always good for a chuckle. We won’t bother you with our own words – just a quote:
I’ve already seen an identical one that sold for a fortune several years ago, and this one is in a condition that’s a bit more accessible in price. Here’s the proof, but there if very little information on this extraterrestrial dial that makes this one of the rarest and most beautiful ancient in the world.
This is it for now ladies and gentlemen! Wondering about the so-called radial in the opening pic? Read our report right here.
