Speedmaster 125 - Automatic Chronograph ChronometerOmega Speedmaster 125It's Speedy Tuesday! This week's Speedmaster for all our Speedy Tuesday is a little an odd duck inside the bite, but has quite a unique story for it. In 1973, Omega celebrated their 125th anniversary by introducing a fixed edition Speedmaster 125 with this occasion. The Speedmaster 125 was the very first automatic chronograph watch that was chronometer certified. The Lemania based caliber 1041 movement only has been used in this Speedmaster 125 watch and it was in line with the more usual caliber 1040 movement.Enough for your tech-talk. As we discussed on Omega's 'Extract from the Archives' document pictured above, Omega limited producing this Speedmaster 125 to 2000 pieces only. You could think these replica watches has to be difficult in the intervening time, but that's a lttle bit disappointing (for that owners) till now.In the event you explore the Speedmaster 125 on Chrono24 for instance, you will recognize that you will find at the very least twelve of which available. Browse over a limited edition Speedmaster Professional 'Snoopy' one example is, and you will find a couple, while Omega has produced 5,441 of these milgauss rolex . My wildest guess is that this is due to the dimensions (dimensions) and weight in this Speedmaster 125.As Chuck Maddox documented as part of his excellent Speedmaster 125 article (Proud Testimony to 125 a great deal of watchmaking), the width of the watch is 42mm and also the length is really a whopping 51mm. The 42mm is undoubtedly an average diameter today even so the weight of 182.9 grams is certainly not. It is just a heavy watch but very wearable.The Speedy 125 has a modular construction, where one can take off the inner section of the watch in the case. It's kind of unclear for me why you ought to do this, aside from having a smaller 'stopwatch' than you may hold inside your hand while timing something.If you're searching for a Speedmaster 125 like this, take notice of the bracelet (a few of these models included a ref.1225 replacement bracelet after a service overhaul). It needs to be 1221/212 model, that is a lot thicker than its 'service' successor. The primary link in the 1225 bracelet is actually half a CM thick! Furthermore, be sure that the gaskets are clean (those between the outer case and also the inner case) which the movement runs smoothly of course.Read more about Omega's 'Exctract on the Archives' can be obtained here. For CHF 75.- you will get a pleasant folder with a document as pictured above. Although very beneficial, I think Omega has made a blunder over these documents with regards to the Production date.  Essentially, the fabrication date was for the 25th of March, 1975 . We are convinced that they mixed up the development date as well as the shipping date. womens rolex datejust It's more logical that watch continues to be shipped to Germany within the 25th of March 1975 rrt had been created in that year (although it would have been a 1973 timepiece with merely a small run). During the past, when John Diethelm was curator from the museum, Industry experts him once in regards to a Speedmaster Professional pre-Moon. He wrote me rrt had been produced in 1967 and shipped to Norway in 1968 (including a perfect date). Years later, I retrieved the official Extract on the Archives from Omega nevertheless this watch was made in 1968. watches Anyway, it's a great service and adds some value for your vintage Omega timepiece. Quite often, documentation is missing with these vintage timepieces which method for at the least get some details on your timepiece. replica breitling navitimer blue dial watches
