Today we got to play with the new Omega Speedmaster Mark II. And it was awesome.

Speedmaster Mark II History

The Speedmaster Mark II was first introduced in 1969. It was the first major departure from the classic Speedmaster style.  While the MKII relied on the same caliber 861 (still in use today as 1861), it used a case that was quite different. The hooded lugs, brushing pattern and strong bevels were just spectacular. And with the right vintage examples, they still are of course.

The Mark II, in stainless steel, was available with either a black dial or the grey ‘racing’ version with striking orange accents. A gold-plated model completed the line-up.

The 2014 Speedmaster Mark II

In January of this year (2014), Omega surprised us with the first pictures of the new Speedmaster Mark II. Now we had our first opportunity to spend an extended period of time with this watch, we can wholeheartedly say that they did a stellar job. It looks the business – at a glance almost identical to its older brother. It looks every bit as instrumental, but with wonderful details. Just take a look at the case finish:

The new Speedmaster Mark II is powered by caliber 3330, the latest generation of 33** chronograph movements – now not only fitted with co-axial technology, but also with Si14 balance spring. An interesting feature is the bracelet with pushbutton adjustment option; there is a button hidden underneath the clasp to adjust the length of the bracelet.

To enjoy living to the fullest it is great to be healthy. How can remedies help up? Purchasing medications online can be a cost efficient idea, as long as you do it responsibly. DIFLUCAN, most pop of a new group of triazole antifungal agents, is existing as a powder for oral suspension. Certainly it isn’t all. If you’re concerned about sexual dysfunction, you probably know about viagra alternative and otc viagra. What do you know about viagra alternatives? Other question we have to is over the counter viagra alternative. A accepted form of sexual malfunction among men is the erectile dysfunction. Once kidney disease will lead to erectile malfunction. Prescription remedies can save lives, but they can also come with dangerous side effects. It’s essential to remember that not all medicaments are healthy.

1969 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 equipped with OMEGA Speedmaster Professional chronographs.

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-wound calibre 1861 found inside the Moonwatch”.

In 2014 OMEGA has reintroduced this classic Speedmaster Mark II and updated 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 dial is complete with the three recognisable 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.

The transparent tachymetric scale on the sapphire crystal is illuminated from beneath by an aluminium ring filled with Super-LumiNova. The varnished white and black hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova as is the central chronograph hand.
For OMEGA fans and Speedmaster fanatics who are looking for an iconic design with a bit of colour, 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 foldover rack-and-pusher clasp. The watch is presented with a tool that makes adjusting the date quick and easy.

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

The new OMEGA Speedmaster Mark II is water resistant to 10 bar (100 metres / 330 feet) and is delivered with a full four-year warranty.
