As collaborations go you can’t get much better than this fine Mitsukoshi Speedmaster Professional. Omega in 2003 created 300 of these special pieces, to be sold exclusively in the prestigious 1914 Mitsukoshi Store in Tokyo. The contrast of each sub-dial on the white pops, creating a watch that makes a statement of intent. This example is a Modification of a 2018 Speedmaster, an original Mitsukoshi Dial and Handset has been fitted to look like the Mitsukoshi without the dizzying price tag, original hands and dial are provided too. Inside is the manually wound Cal. 1861 movement. 18 Jewels beating at 21600 beats per hour with a power reserve up to 40 hours. Fitted on the original 20mm Speedmaster Stainless Steel bracelet with Omega signed clasp.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Omega oversized box with original Omega paperwork, all accessories, original dial and original handset are also provided. The original watch was purchased at retail in May 2018 as signed on the guarantee. The watch comes paired on its original Omega stainless steel bracelet with spare links, original Omega NATOs are provided too. The watch is in worn condition but is overall very good, see the photos. The watch is running well as you would expect.
My second Mitsukoshi Mod! These are so damn cool and thankfully do not cost the vast sums that people are asking for the original. Thankfully the parts used are original Omega parts, it is vital in my opinion to purchase one of these mods with the original Omega part packets still provided! It helps in authenticating the dial and hands to be factory Omega and not aftermarket.
