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 2013 Speedmaster, an original Mitsukoshi Dial and Handset has been fitted to look the Mitsukoshi without the dizzying price tag, original hands and dial are provided too. Inside is the manually wound Cal. 1861 movement.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a full set and comes with original Omega box and original Omega Paperwork, including receipt. Original dial and hands are provided, original Mitsokushi dial and hands are currently fitted to the watch, this makes this watch a “Mitsukoshi MOD”, not the original limited edition Mitsukoshi! The watch was serviced this year and runs well.
This gives a great opportunity for someone to buy and enjoy a Mitsukoshi without the huge price tag, sure it is not one of the original 300 but it looks brilliant and fitting! I understand not everyone is a fan of Mods, but I believe that if it is disclaimed as such it is acceptable.
