Suitable For Zero Gravity

The year 1969 was a memorable one for mankind. For the first time, we broke our terrestrial bonds and set foot on the moon. The astronauts who took those initial lunar steps 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 861 found inside the ‘moonwatch’.

Now, Omega has reintroduced the Speedmaster Mark II with an automatic movement and tachymetric scale visible in the most limited light.

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 three o’clock, 12-hour recorder at six o’clock and small seconds sub-dial at nine o’clock. 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.

Speedmaster Mark II chronograph £3,950 by OMEGA; 0845-272 3100
