Yet another vintage Omega Speedmaster Professional watch with an interesting story behind it. This vintage Omega watch was the tool watch of a working test pilot in the US Air Force based at the famous Edwards Air Force base in California and was used in hundreds of hours of test flights.
This Omega Speedmaster Mark 4 received a damaged crystal during a test mission and the original owner, who is now an extremely high ranking official in the US air force, struggled to find somewhere locally to get it repaired. His wife then purchased him a new Omega Speedmaster for their wedding anniversary and so he sold this watch and it came to the UK. It was sent to authorised Omega service eagents STS who professionally refinished the watch to the original vintage Omega ‘sunburst’ finish, fitted a new crystal, crown, pushers, all gaskets and carried out a full mechanical service.
A great looking vintage Omega watch with even greater provenance!
