Up for grabs is an Omega Speedmaster Professional
This is a rare “straight writing” caseback model and even more rare variation with Apollo XI 1969 inscription.
313133XX serial number circa 1971 production with correct serial number range for this caseback
Excellent vintage condition case is very sharp and clean. No dings or dents or deep and notable scratches.
I am confident to say that the caseback has never been opened until the previous dealer had it who sold it to me. The outside is in amazing condition with pretty much all of its black enamel still intact. There are absolutely no service marks inside. The gasket is extremely dry and probably original to this watch. The movement screws look untouched.
The dial is original step dial with perfect plots and condition. Again, probably never been out of the case. The hand are original, also show no signs of ever been removed. There are no scratches on paint. The lume has aged to a dark color, which is not uncommon.
Crystal is original with correct Omega logo in center.
Bezel is original and is in excellent condition without any dents or dents or scratches.
The watch was found and comes on a generic steel bracelet, but also was found with its original and correct for this model 1116 bracelet. The Omega bracelet is in excellent condition, but is missing the end-links. It is included in the sale.
No box or papers of any kind. The watch runs, but since I believe it was never serviced before, you may consider doing that if you’re buying it to wear or leave it alone if its going into a collection.
