The 1960s were strange times, watch business was booming but economy not that much though. Hippie culture took over and NASA took an Omega Speedmaster to the moon, and that is the watch you’re looking at. The accomplishment of NASA to go to the moon and back with a manned space shuttle was a happening of big impact in history. This moment determined the lifelong success and love for the Omega Speedmaster among watch enthusiasts.
This Speedmaster is one of the best out there. Let’s start with the year, which is the year of the moon landing; 1969. This is the most sought-after year when it comes to Speedmasters. Then comes the dial, the so-called stepped dial has the three chronograph registers which lay slightly lower and are shaped like a small bowl. The tritium markers have gained a nice patina appropriate for its age. Moreover, the DON-bezel (dot over 90), which was discontinued in 1969, is still equipped on this beauty. This watch is finished with an appropriate vintage strap, but it’s changeable upon request.
There’s a big variety in Speedmasters and this vintage piece ticks almost all boxes. We always have many Speedmasters in stock, visit our store and let us find the perfect one for you! We’re located in the Reestraat, Amsterdam
