One of the most impressive milestones in the history of horology, the first Omega chronograph watches fitted with the caliber 27 CHRO C12 were released in 1942. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of this movement, Omega launched in 1992 the reference 345.0052 as a limited edition of 999 examples. After its introduction, the caliber 27 CHRO was further improved and later renamed caliber 321, which was equipped in a wide array of models including all the Speedmasters until 1968. To celebrate its Jubilee anniversary, Omega brought to the world three limited lineups, all of which had cases in 18K yellow gold. Only a limited part of the 999 pieces were equipped with a solid yellow-gold bracelet, and the lot here offered is part of this family. These examples comprised a caliber 863 movement. Offered in overall excellent condition and further complimented by box and extract from the archives confirming its production on the 27th of November 1992 and delivered to Italy, this is a precious and important version of Speedmster that will surely attract Omega’s collectors.
