Originally launched in 1969, the Speedmaster Chronograph Mark II ‘of Omega this year has a new life. While the original model was equipped with the manual winding caliber 861, it now houses the Co-Axial caliber 3330 , a wound movement automatic matching of a spiral in Si14 silicon and a column-wheel mechanism.
Decorated with a touch of color, the new Speedmaster Chronograph Mark II has a central chronograph seconds hand and a fluorescent orange timer. Chromatic detail that distinguishes this model from its predecessor.
Seamless tachometer scale on the sapphire glass is backlit using an aluminum ring coated with Super-LumiNova. The hour and minute hands painted black and white are coated with Super-LumiNova, as the central chronograph hand.
The stainless steel satin polished, tonneau-shaped, has a crown and pushers polite. We also note a date corrector at 10 o’clock. The dial is punctuated by three iconic Speedmaster chronograph counters original: a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. The dial, gray or matte black, is protected by a flat sapphire crystal which is scratch resistant.
The bottom of the Speedmaster Chronograph Mark II is engraved medallion Seahorse and mentions “Si14” and “Column Wheel”.
The housing is mounted on a stainless steel bracelet satin and closes with an expandable patented Omega clasp, with a clasp rack to lengthen the strap on demand, without the use of tools.
