OMEGA Speedmaster Mark III 176.002 From Ben OliverIt's Speedy Tuesday! Just last week I've met Ben Oliver, a car journalist in the United Kingdom who writes for a variety of titles. He explained about his love for mechanical replica watches and vintage chronographs for example. One of the replica watches he carried with him a week ago - it had been in the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2014 in Italy - was the 17mm thick Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark III from 1972. A watch that's very difficult to match under your sleeve. The Omega Speedmaster (Professional) Mark III reference 176.002 was introduced in 1971 and featured an automated chronograph movement the very first time within a Speedmaster. Omega and Lemania jointly developed this movement (officially documented as being the Omega caliber 1040a) generally known as Lemania caliber 1341.After the output of the Speedmaster (Professional) Mark III in 1973, there was a batch of 2000 Lemania caliber 1341 based movements which are certified being an official chronometer. This batch was dubbed Omega Caliber 1041 and it was solely used for the Omega Speedmaster 125, to mark the 125th anniversary on the Bienne based company. More background information is available online of Speedmaster legend and friend, the late Chuck Maddox. The application of 'Professional' about the dial in this Mark III model is a touch confusing. As outlined by an ancient Omega archives employee, exactly the later versions of this watch (1973) bear the 'Professional' wording about the dial. However, good extract on the archives the watch from Ben Oliver was manufactured in June 1972 and also the dial hasn't ever been replaced.The mixers have zero 'Professional' for the dial have 'Omega Automatic Speedmaster Mark III' written on the dial. Later models have 'Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark III' for the dial at 12 o'clock and 'Automatic' written on the left on the date aperture at 3 o'clock. My business is inclined to trust utilizing 'later models', the Omega archives employee known as models (at the least) after May/June 1972. A fast look-up on Chrono24 shows me 9 Speedmaster Mark III replica watches for sale, only 1 without the 'Professional' wording within the dial and this watch is - in line with the seller - dated 1972. With regards to Observed it doesn't matter much for your valuation on the watch though.Ben Oliver writes me that "The extract on the records in the Omega archive signifies that the watch was stated in June '72 and supplied to Germany. I aquired it from the vintage dealer in Hong Kong, in addition to a 321-calibre Speedmaster Professional. The dealership also stood a Memomatic i always liked, but my spouse drew the road at two! I sent this MkIII back to the Omega factory in Bienne for the light restoration, nevertheless they stated that the 1040-calibre movement what food was in great condition. It stood a complete, a light refinish of the case and original bracelet, and new, period-correct hands." rolex watch prices in india .No experience of a dial replacement and that i have no need to assume many experts have replaced either.Essentially within the photos above, this watch is large. Owner and wearer Ben Oliver has a nice car to watch analogy for his Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark III: "I just sundresses for women adore the watch, though it won't fit under most shirt cuffs. A couple have offered to purchase it off my wrist - that's never happened to me before, but it can be because it's usually visible! I'm an auto guy, and i believe with the MkIII just like the Porsche 928. The same as the 911, Omega were built with a real classic in the Moonwatch, however in the late sixties they worried which it would soon be outdated. So, exactly like Porsche, they introduced possible replacements which were more fashionable, but didn't have the original's timeless appeal. So, similar to the 928, the MkIII soon fell away from favour even though the original has continued until now. These days these replica watches (along with the 928!) look cool again, and have real period appeal. Then there is some horological interest for the 1040-calibre movement: Omega has been beaten for the first automatic chronograph in 1969, but once they produced one using this type of movement replica vintage swiss watch , it had been of high quality."The funny note is always that during the event in Italy, we came upon an automobile photographer from Germany who had been also wearing exactly the same Omega Speedmaster Pro Mark III series. In a slightly less condition than Ben's watch, however awesome. It appears that this watch is actually a conversation maker, as Ben and also the German photographer discussed their replica watches briefly which set it up the ability to try taking a little photos of the Speedmaster Mark III replica watches together. Something probably will rarely see. It struck me that there were more Omega Speedmaster replica watches than I was expecting to discover 'in the wild' in Italy. Of course, car events are some of the spot to be to distinguish interesting replica watches, but I would have guessed the area will be flooded with Rolex replica watches. To be a friend wrote me on Facebook the other day "More Rolex on wrists than fish in the lake!!".However, the majority of the OmegaSpeedmaster replica watches spotted were the excellent ol'Moonwatch models. Only twoSpeedmaster Mark III series might be identified.The following are some close-up photos on the watch. The bracelet for the Mark III is reference 1162 (same in principle as around the Speedmaster Mark II). The shot in the dial shows the central minute and 2nd hand for that chronograph work as well as the Round the clock indicator on 9 o'clock. Form black dial, there are fashionable silver dial version and blue dial version sold at the time time (in 1971-1973).The large fat the event of the Speedmaster Pro Mark III reference 176.002 measures 41mm (width) x 51.6mm (length) and it's no small watch you should. It is owned by that period with time (1970s) when funky large watch cases were considered modern. Using the re-edition from the Speedmaster Mark II series (this is articles about the original Mark II) it shows that there's again desire for clunky 1970s shapes and maybe these particular designs are getting to be 'iconic' likewise.As Ben Oliver puts it: "I've always loved Omegas in this period, this is great that Omega is acknowledging their appeal by reissuing replica watches just like the Seamaster Bullhead and also the Speedmaster MkII. But I ponder whether the MkIII has too dramatic a shape to sell well as a reissue now. I do obtain the prices puzzling - I know the reissued MkII carries a co-axial movement, nonetheless it seems odd to pay for 4000 to have an homage if your watch that's being paid homage to can be purchased for 1000, or less. A fantastic MkIII similar to this will probably be worth no less than double that now, i really dread to consentrate what Omega would demand a modern reissue!I've got another chronographs from this period - I think it would be a great time for watch design. I'm looking out for a superb Speedmaster 125, and also a big-case Breitling Navitimer Chronomatic 1806 to go with the manual-wind Cosmonaute I have - however do not believe I'd swap the MkIII for getting one!"I often go along with Ben within the undeniable fact that the shape of the Mark III is a little too extreme to have a remake done. However, the Omega Spacemaster Z-33 was using the legendary Omega Flightmaster replica watches understanding that case is extremely the same as the Mark III 176.002 case.The Speedy Pro Mark III series watch can be an impressive timepiece this is not for your faint hearted. That the awkward Speedmaster similar to this is within the wrist of your car - especially Porsche - fan would not be a surprise in my experience. Remember our article about the Speedmaster 176.012 from 1974 on the wrist of Porsche 911 guru Magnus Walker?A massive appreciate it to Ben Oliver for enjoying!
