Take a poll amongst wrist watch collectors, and we'd bet the consensus would be that there is nothing more important or iconic in a watch collection than an Omega Speedmaster.
Sure, chronographs such as the Rolex Daytona or the Heuer Carrera are classics - icons even - but neither can match the stature of the Speedy with regards to importance in history. Arguably no watch can.
This particular piece, however, is more than just your averageSpeedmaster Professional... Known to collectors as ‘Ultraman’ models for their distinctive Japanese-market orange chronograph seconds hand, few genuine examples have surfaced.
The example that we have is quite simply amongst the cleanest we've ever seen - of any Speedmaster - from the period. This piece dates to circa 1969 and features the best elements of the time period, including a 41mm stainless steel twisted-lug case, an Omega-signed Hesalite crystal, a signed crown, a black “dot over 90” bezel insert, and beautifully patinated matte black tritium dial with an applied logo and a matching, exotic ‘Ultraman’ handset. Powered by the iconic, hand-wound Omega Calibre .321 movement, it’s paired to an incredible stainless steel flat-link expanding bracelet with a signed blade clasp.
In simply outstanding condition throughout, this is a museum-grade Speedy that’ll make any Omega collector salivate.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to own a piece of both horological and pop culture history!
