CASE & CASEBACK: Large 40 x 45mm stainless steel case is very clean and appears to have never been polished. This Speedy a few scratches but nothing out of the ordinary after 48 years of use. Overall, Excellent+ appears to have never been polished vintage condition. The outer caseback has some minor scratches but no gouges from poor opening technique or the like. The Hippocampus, SPEEDMASTER & Omega symbol are quite crisp–externally Excellent cosmetic condition. The inner caseback has no corrosion and shows all the correct original Omega nomenclature of the period, including the proper reference number.
DIAL & HANDS: Mint original Tritium dial in very light creme colour. Tritium bars have an attractive off-white creme tone and the dial has not faded . The correct hour and minute hands are also Near Mint with no signs of age and are likewise Tritium-filled. .
CROWNS & PUSHERS: Signed Omega winding crown and original pushers are Near Mint cosmetically. The large crown winds and pulls out to the time-setting position as it should. The top pusher stops and starts the chronograph and the bottom pusher resets all chrono registers precisely to zero as designed.
CRYSTAL: Original Omega signed plexi No chips or deep scratches whatsoever.
MOVEMENT: Legendary Omega cal. 321 chronograph movement with a 25 million serial number (ca. 1967) looking very bright and pristine. I do not know the service history of this watch and so cannot guarantee that it will not need service in future. However, all chronograph and time-keeping functions operate properly, with crisp start/stop and reset of the chrono hands, and this manual wind Speedy is keeping good time with a strong power reserve. Guaranteed to be operating properly at the time of shipment.
BRACELET: Original 1039 bracelet incl extra links
BOX PAPERS : This Speedy comes with the original box and a recent extract from the Omega Archives
