The Watch

Here we have a 2000s Omega Speedmaster Reduced MOP 3534.79.00 with a 39mm satin-brushed and polished stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with the characteristic twisted lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 44.5mm and a case thickness of 12mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. Down the right side, we have the recessed piston-style chronograph pushers and in the centre a signed crown. The fixed stainless steel bezel has an engraved Tachymeter scale with its numerals painted in black, holding a domed sapphire crystal above the stunning Mother of Pearl dial. An outer minute track is precisely executed with vibrant red Arabic numerals marking the hours, at 3 o’clock we have the continuous seconds register, at 6 o’clock a 12-hour register and finally at 9 o’clock a 30-minute register. Slender sword hands are infilled with luminance and complemented by a tapered chronograph hand, at 12 o’clock you will find the Omega Speedmaster motif completing this mesmerising tool watch that magically catches the light as you rotate your wrist, a true feast for the eyes. On the reverse, we have an embossed Hippocampus on a textured centre of a snap-off case back, inside an automatic Omega Cal. 3220, 47 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, the movement is based on an ETA 2890-A2 calibre, with a Dubois-Dépraz 2020 chronograph module stacked on top. The watch comes paired with an original Omega 18mm stainless steel bracelet.


Personal Note

Is the perfect Speedmaster the reduced at 39mm? You decide... But one thing that is for certain is that this dial is truly unique, with the beautiful mother of pearl and the bold red numerals this watch isn't for everyone but very special for the right person and that is exactly what we love to stock at KibbleWatches! If you are unsure, book an appointment and come see it for yourself to decide.


The Brand

Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. in 1848 founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When he died in 1879, his sons carried on his dream. In 1880 they moved to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli where they remain today.¬†The brothers produced their first mass-produced calibre, the Labrador In 1885. Just a few years later in 1892, they produced the first minute-repeater.¬†In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA.¬†During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army.¬†In 1930, Omega and Tissot merged together to form Soci√©t√© Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlog√®re (SSIH) In 1931, another group was formed - Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG). Where SSIH was primarily French-speaking, ASUAG was founded by the more German-speaking members of the Swiss watch industry.¬†In 1948 they introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster.¬†Omega first introduced the Constellation in 1952. At the time it was Omega's flagship timepiece. The first models had a Cal. 354 bumper movement in them. Later in 1955, Omega introduced the Automatic Cal. 50x, followed in 1959 by the Cal.55x (no date) and 56x (date) versions. Many of the Constellations came with pie-pan dials, diamond indexes, and fancy lug configurations. All the gold Constellations of that time have the Observatory of Geneva's hand engraved on the back. The stainless steel and stainless steel/gold versions had a gold medallion on the back with the Observatory of Geneva. The eight stars above the Observatory stand for the many exploits of Omega in the world Chronometer competition. Celebrating the fact that all Constellations are Chronometer Certified.¬†In 1962, when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first Omega watch to enter space. After rigorous tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice. In 1969, President Nixon famously said it was ‚Äútoo valuable‚ÄĚ and turned down the first-ever all-gold Speedmaster Professional Deluxe.¬†As a response to the ever-growing threat of electronic watches to the manufacturers of mechanical watches, Omega and many Swiss brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe formed Centre Electronique Horologer (CEH). Prototypes began to appear in 1967 with their production starting in 1968. Then In 1972, Omega introduced the reference, 198.030, which included the Omega calibre 1250, a ‚Äėtuning-fork electronic movement which was made under licence from Bulova.¬†Later we saw a merger of SSIH and ASUAG into SMH, or Soci√©t√© de Micro√©lectronique et d‚ÄôHorlogerie. This merger took place in 1983.¬†In 1992, the company acquired Blancpain, and in 1998 it officially rebranded itself from SMH to the Swatch Group. Then, in 1999, they purchased and integrated Breguet into the Swatch Group.
