Stainless steel with symmetrical straight lugs, Omega-signed crown and small pushers, caseback outer signed SPEEDMASTER above seahorse logo, and Ω below, inside stamped 2998-6, with Omega-signed Hesalite glass

Dial

Matte black, stepped, with applied Ω, and signed OMEGA, Speedmaster, PROFESSIONAL with tall radium hour markers, further marked SWISS MADE at the bottom

Condition

The watch is in good pre-owned condition with signs of age-related wear to the case, bezel insert and the no. 7912 bracelet. The dial is quite stunning with a beautifully clear but patinated appearance, the handset is good, and both have matching radium with a warm and consistent yellow hue throughout. The original dot over 90 bezel insert has light scratching and a dent at 120, the case retains strength and thickness, while the bracelet has later-produced no. 6 endlinks. Overall, this is a very attractive example of a highly-coveted reference.
