In 1998, to celebrate its incredible 150th anniversary, Omega decided to launch a new model in yellow gold with reference 3693.50.81, a limited edition of the “Replica” Speedmaster. With a limited production of only 150 pieces, this Speedmaster is an extremely rare and very hard to find watch. Manufactured with an 18 kt yellow-gold case and a black dial, it bears broad arrow hands to pay homage to the vintage Speedmasters. The yellow-gold case back has commemorative inscriptions and, of course, the identification number (in this case 070 of 150), while inside pulses the manual winding caliber 1863. The dial is black with three subsidiary dials for constant seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours registration, white baton indexes and outer track. The bracelet could be either 18-karat yellow gold or leather with a deployant clasp like the present specimen. This Omega Speedmaster ref. 3693.50.81 150th Anniversary has been cared for with extreme attention over the years. The conditions are simply amazing: the case has perfect proportions, deep stamps and a pleasant, small oxidation patina while the dial is perfect. Stored in a safe box for many years and hardly used, this specimen is undoubtedly one of the best examples ever seen in a long time. The watch is completed by the original warranty and box.
