Brand

Omega

Year

1967

Movement

Calibre 321 manual winding, copper coloured, 17 jewels, 18,000 VpH, with column wheel chronograph function

Case Material

Stainless steel with asymmetrical lugs and Omega-signed crown, wide and tall pushers. Caseback, outer signed SPEEDMASTER, above seahorse logo, and   below, inside stamped SP 145012-67 and HF (Huguenin Frères). Omega-signed, acrylic polymer Hesalite glass

Dial

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

Condition

Presented in good well-used condition with an attractive warm patina to the dial and handset, whose matching tritium lume has taken on a patinated darker hue throughout. Consistent with its age and use, the case has understandable scratching, but retains strength, the crown and pushers may be service replacements, the original bezel insert is chipped, and the Omega-signed crystal is cracked near II, while the later ref. 1116 bracelet is supple and shows signs of daily use. Overall, a well-used but attractive and honest example of this classic reference.
