This one is hard to let go, but a real must for any die hard Omega Speedmaster fan, and one of the best investment pieces in the last few years.
What we have here is the iconic 'straight lug' Speedmaster with what can only be described as the most gorgeous dark green dot over 90 bezel! Generally found on the -6. The case is fat, and seems unpolished with a strong hippocampus caseback logo. The dial is in phenomenal condition, with perfect pumpkin hour plots, and nice clean subdials. There are no visible blemishes to the dial. The dial measures strong on the geiger counter.
The watch will include a mesh NASA steel bracelet with horned ends and also a 7912 bracelet with no.6 ends.
The watch has been serviced by Simon Freese, known for his sympathtic services, especially on caliber 321's.
This is a very special example of a appreciating and iconic Speedy. You will struggle to find a more beautiful and unique one.
