Omega Speedmaster Mark II Ref. 145.014 steel vintage chronograph wristwatch, circa 1969
A large stainless steel manually wound chronograph wristwatch with registers and steel Omega bracelet
The Speedmaster Mark II is one of the most recognised of Omega’s vintage chronograph watches. Entering Omega’s International Collection in 1969, the model’s large tonneau-form case was a dramatic departure from the traditional circular style of the first Speedmaster models and the watch’s aesthetic looked towards the more angular styles that would become a feature of 1970s watches. The hands are replacement Omega Speedmaster hands, however, the original hands are included with this watch and are supplied in a sealed container – these have losses to the white paint and luminescence. There is stretch and wear to the steel bracelet which is detachable and may be replaced with a strap if preferred. The case has scuffs and scratches throughout and there are some small marks to the dial.
