Why We Love it

The name "Speedmaster Professional" is synonymous with the exploration of space and is best known as the first watch worn on the moon, giving them some pretty serious credentials. It is arguable that Omega would probably have stayed in business and been just as popular if the original moon watch was the only model they ever made for the line. But they didn't stop there, and we're glad they didn't. The years following the legendary Apollo mission saw the release of an expanded line of Speedmaster variants, known commonly as the "Mark" Series. Some of these watches were real flops on the market, and others weren't. Regardless of their initial popularity, all are interesting timepieces and have a collector following today. Of these Mark Series Speedmasters, the one we get asked about most frequently is the first successor to the original Professional - the Mark II.

Mark II Speedmasters were the first radical departure from the traditional Speedmaster case, and instead of an exposed lug design, the Mark II was given a tonneau shape with hidden lugs. This gives the Mark II a great profile and a distinctly 70s look that is quite popular with enthusiasts today.  Like the Moon Watch models, the Mark II used the Calibre .861 manual winding chronograph movement that was introduced in 1968, making them robust and reliable for regular use.

This particular piece is a great example overall, with an incredibly beautiful original dial and handset and a thoughtfully restored case. Values on the Mark II Speedmasters have been steadily climbing for the past two years, and like their original moon watch brethren, are going to continue doing so as the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission looms on the horizon.
