Today's offering showcases this complicated Certified Pre-Owned automatic Speedmaster, ref. 3521.80. Besides the chronograph the watch also possesses a triple date calendar and twenty-four hour time indication.
The case and bracelet both carry a traditional speedy look, although the bezel is of the sleeker steel embossed variety, and the royal blue dial with all of its functions is quite striking.
Note that it appears lighter blue under the bright photography lights. In person it is Omega's rich traditional royal blue.
It is the more desirable second generation of this model with Hypocampus case back.
It is 100% Omega down to the waterproofing seal and presents as just short of perfect mint condition - it presents as about a 9.6 out of 10. It presents as mint on the wrist.
Any needed servicing has been performed, and we have timed it in five chronometer positions.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
In 1957, Omega unveiled a chronograph that was a true technological marvel, the Speedmaster. Its incredible durability and accuracy would not only win it accolades around the world and the distinction of being the first watch to be worn on the moon, it would accomplish something far more important, guiding the crew of Apollo 13 safely back home after their malfunctioning electronic systems had shut down.
