The 2014 Basel International Jewellery and Watch Show has opened, and the staff of the Watch House Special Reporting staff have begun to work. They will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive 2014 Basel International Watch Show Report.
1969 is a memorable year in human history. For the first time, human beings crossed the boundary of the earth and landed on another planet, the Moon, and the first astronauts who left footprints on the surface of the Moon were wearing OMEGA Speedmaster professional chronographs.
In the same year, Omega launched a refreshing Speedmaster Mark II watch. The case has a streamlined design, and the internal 861 manual-winding movement is exactly the movement carried by the lunar watch that has successfully completed the moon test.
In 2014, Omega recasted the classics and launched a replica of the Speedmaster Mark II watch, equipped with an automatic movement. At the same time, the speedometer scale of the new Speedmaster Mark II has been processed and is still clearly visible in extremely weak light-this is the first of its kind in the Speedmaster series.
The frosted and polished stainless steel case has a barrel shape with a polished crown and chronograph button. The calendar adjuster is located at 10 o’clock on the case. There are three small dials on the dial: the 30-minute chronograph dial at 3 o’clock, the 12-hour chronograph dial at 6 o’clock, and the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. Plano-convex wear-resistant sapphire crystals provide effective protection for matte black or gray dials.
The scale of the transparent speedometer is transferred to the inside of the sapphire crystal, and the aluminum ring underneath is covered with a luminous coating. In the dark environment, the night light is displayed through the transparent scale, which is particularly eye-catching. Black and white lacquered hour, minute and central chronograph hands are also coated with Super-LumiNova.
For those who love the classic design of the Omega and Speedmaster watches, if you want color highlights, you can choose the Speedmaster Mark II watch with a gray dial, its fluorescent orange central chronograph second hand and the minute scale that matches its color It’s striking.
The Omega Speedmaster Mark II uses a frosted stainless steel bracelet and Omega’s patented extendable folding clasp. This watch comes with tools for quick and easy calendar adjustment.
Compared to the original version in 1969, the new Speedmaster Mark II watch is equipped with a 3330 self-winding coaxial movement with a Si14 silicon balance spring and longitudinal chronograph.
The new Omega Speedmaster Mark II is water resistant to 10 atmospheres (100 meters / 330 feet). Omega guarantees after-sales service for up to 4 years.
