The celebrated Omega Speedmaster is today one of the most renowned models ever produced. The first reference was the 2915 and was launched in 1957, remaining in production until 1959, after which was introduced a new reference and they continued to update it to this day. In 1996 Omega released the 3572.50 such as the present watch, and replaced the reference 3592.50, changing the caliber. The new caliber 1863 movement was based on Lemania’s caliber 1873 and was used by Omega till 1996, which ditched the golden color of the caliber 863, and replaced it with rhodium finishing and Geneva stripes. The very cool example in stainless steel here offered has been nicely preserved for all its life, this watch still has its original stainless steel bracelet and bezel calibrated to 500 units. The black dial is intact and around 1998, Omega began fitting the reference 3572.50 with dials and hands that used Super-Luminova to provide them with their luminescence, rather than radioactive tritium like previous models. Sold with its original warranty and tag this watch will for sure fascinate man or women grown with the myth of the “race to the space”.
