1995 Omega Speedmaster MK40 Triple Date Chronograph C. 1151 Ref. 3520.53 - SOLD
The Speedmaster is one of the most important watches ever made, and that importance has spurned a massive following. With that popularity came something in the Speedmaster line for everyone. Automatic models, racing variants, smaller sizes, but still with that Moonwatch DNA and clean design. In the mid 90s Omega released the Mark 40 Speedmaster, utitlizing an automatic chronograph movement but also including a 24 hour hand and a triple calendar. Packing the watch with functionality wasn’t enough though, as the Mark 40 was also given an extremely legible and colorful dial design, with splashes and accents of different bright colors, increasing both legibility and allure. The Arabic numerals done in tritium also provided great lume and a racing feel. The Mark 40 remains a rather under rated model in the Speedmaster lineup, but we think the popularity of these will pick up moving forward. Our Mark 40 is in excellent condition with all functions (and there are a bunch) working perfectly on its original bracelet and appears to be all original.
