Omega has relaunched its iconic 1969 Speedmaster Mark II chronograph, updating it for the 21th century with the latest technology and a splash of colour. The new model is instantly recognisable by the streamlined 42.4 x 46.2mm tonneau-shaped brushed stainless steel case and link bracelet. This model features a grey dial with a transparent tachymeter scale on the flange illuminated by a groovy fluorescent orange ring and other bright orange details including the chronograph seconds hand and the matching minute track. The dial displays three chronograph counters and a date window at 6 o'clock. In contrast to the 1969 Speedmaster Mark II, which was equipped with a hand-wound calibre 861, the new model is powered by the Co-Axial calibre 3330, an automatic movement complete with a Si14 silicon balance spring and a column-wheel chronograph. The new Omega Speedmaster Mark II has worked a fine balance between maintaining the vintage style of the 1969 timepiece while creating an entirely contemporary and wearable everyday watch.
