About the Model

As early as 1968, eager to anticipate the specific needs of NASA, Omega started to work on improvements to the Moonwatch.

At the same time, new technologies and new functionalities were appearing and becoming more popular: automatic winding on chronographs, day and date indication, then quartz and other innovations. Always at the forefront of research, Omega gradually introduced these novelties in its various ranges, and notably on the Speedmaster.

The first evolution was produced in 1969, with the Speedmaster Professional Mark II, assuming that the Moonwatch is the Mark I, although never called like this.
The Mark II conserved the same caliber 861, but the case, made by Piquerez, had a new shape, with a better integration of the bracelet and a flat mineral glass covering the bezel.

The steel version was commercialized as ST 145.014, then ST 145.034. A gold plated version with a bordeaux bezel (MD 145.034) was produced at less than 5’000 copies. The second generation of Mark II Speedmasters (145.03x) is distinguished from the first (145.014) by a glass sealing system using an Isofrane L-seal, guaranteeing water resistance of 120 meters instead of 60.

Reference ST 145.037, known as “Telestop”, was produced in very limited volume for a particular use: operate the chronograph using a device attached by cables to the pushers, allowing time to be measured, without having to roll up one’s sleeve (for example when skiing).
