Speedy Tuesday - OMEGA Speedmaster Mark IIIOmega's remarkable first automatic chronographIn 1971, Omega launched the Speedmaster Mark III Automatic, the primary automatic chronograph of the trademark. That it was presented because alternative within the Speedmaster-series: a self-winding Speedmaster. The watch featured the modern, automatic chronograph movement c 1040, housed in a very funky chunk of steel. Looking back, it is a lot to like with regards to the Omega Speedmaster Mark III, its ridiculous case plus the inconsistent Mark-line.Omega Speedmaster Mark IIIThe automatic chronograph became available to the population in 1969 by Zenith, while Breitling and Heuer/Leonidas were also completing their versions (ChronoMatic). Seiko had already released the initial automatic chronograph (caliber 6139) earlier in 1969, however limited for the Japanese market. Omega's first automatic chronograph movement, calibre 1040, had been developed with Lemania and was presented in 1971 in the Omega Speedmaster Mark III. The central rotor winding automatic chronograph, having a diameter of 13 3/4 lines and a height of 8 mm, featured a central 1 hour counter (the 'jet' hand), a central 'stopwatch' hand counting one minute in 5ths of the second, a 12-hrs counter at 6 o'clock, a dual counter at 9 o'clock as well as a date at 3. The double counter at 9 contains a consistent seconds counter along with a 24-hrs dial showing day or night. It is also possible that this huge case was designed to house this thick movement.Speedmaster Mark III advertisement - OmegaMuseum.comStrange caseAlthough technical assets probably were type in the highly innovative and competitive 1970's watch industry, the humongous Omega Speedmaster Mark III watchcase should have been the eye-catcher for that consumer. This metal slice of a timepiece is compared to punk to classical music. I fell deeply in love with it watch inside late 1990's, when I started checking out the rather neat Speedmaster family watches . Okay, you will find a somewhat funky dial within the Mark II racing version and there are gold Speedmaster Professional replica watches, but truth be told: all of those other Speedy loved ones are modest, reserved and silently stylish. Except the Omega Speedmaster Mark III. Mark III may be the kid that never listened, who left the house years before his 20th birthday and who caused his parents by far the most headaches and worries. It's also essentially the most intriguing one. It's a scion through the so-called pilot-line that's present through the 1970's Omega collections. Pilot-linePilot line identifies Omega's Flightmaster (1969). It really is unclear perhaps the Flightmaster was the very first Omega perform properly case, nevertheless it this was one of the first. The Omega Speedmaster Mark III case is significantly bigger. In line with a watchmaker, the massive case was developed to store the exceptional height in the automatic chronograph movement 1040. The book 'Journey Through Time', refers to this case-type as 'monocoque' also it appeared for the first time in 1970's Seamaster Automatic 200m (ST 166.0091) and later in the 1971 Seamaster automatic 1000m (ST 166.0093). Both wasn't chronographs. The now famous Omega automatic Seamaster 120m (ST 176.0004) - better known as 'Big Blue' - also features the fundamental case (the initial diver chronograph with pushers able to operate at depths as much as 120 meters; it features calibre 1040).Flightmaster and Spacemaster Z-33A case oddityDuring the 1970's Omega used these big, chunky cases for many watch types, chronographs and non-chronographs, such as the 'tv-case', the remarkable big and edgy ST 145.0023 chronographs, now renowned for their Transformers related nicknames (1970), the Memomatic (ST 166.071), the Seamaster 'Football' (st 145.024) produced in 1971, reissued in 1973 for inaugural World Football Day in Barcelona and also the Speedmaster 125 (ST 378.0801). Even Speedsonic or 'Lobster' case (ST 388.08000 en ST 188.0001) from 1974 could be a part of this odd family. Even than the complete 1970's watch production, this family stands apart for the exceptional huge cases - in particular the Omega Speedmaster Mark III.The Omega Speedmaster Mark III isn't only big, it is also heavy with a weight over 157 grams. Even today it still is one of the largest cases Omega ever produced, however not the most heavy. That credit visits the gold Flightmaster (BA 345.0801), weighing 250 gram. The Omega Speedmaster Mark III was discontinued in 1973 (from 1974 the 176.x reference number no more show up in production year lists). In 2014, the remarkable pilot line case-type returned in Omega's titanium Spacemaster Z-33, blending the chunky 70'space age looks of the Flightmaster as well as the Mark III, with modern-day time recording and displaying features.Z-33InconsistentThere is a lot of fuzz in Mark III replica watches. The dial colors and movement was used for a number of models. They share the identical DNA, but there's something inconsistent on them like a series. You will find a version with all the Pilot Line case, there is a 'TV-case' version and there's a flat case version. The thing consistent is the movement (1040). Dials can be found in different colours in a variety of cases and may have variations in details, just like the colours and writing:Pilot case (ST 176.002), steel only; black, blue and gray dial;'TV-case' (ST 176.0005), steel and gold plated; blue, grey and gold dial;Flat case (St 176.007), steel and gold plated; blue, grey and gold dial.Also, there were a number in bezels (underneath the crystal!). Some have a very Telemeter bezel, others a pulsometer or decimals bezel.Black dial Speedmaster Mark IIIThe Mark III dialThe Mark III appeared in three case types and with four different dial colours: black, blue, grey and gold. The golden version never appeared in a pilot line case. The possible III with a grey dial is among the most rare type of this watch; black and blue dials will be more common. The black dial version is most popular, as you move the blue dial version would be the most striking, having its orange hand and light-weight blue details.Professional or not?A closer look in the Omega Speedmaster Mark III replica watches shows several variations of terms about the dial. Have the ability to your message 'automatic' and most have 'Speedmaster'. You will discover identical replica watches having 'Seamaster on the dial. An intriguing detail will be the inclusion of your message 'Professional'. This qualification was added merely to the versions produced after 1973: the Speedmaster chronograph automatic Mark III. Because of inclusion of the saying 'Professional', your message 'automatic' was transferred to 3 o'clock.The Mark lineAccording for the Omegamania auction guide (2007), Omega launched the Mark-series following your first moon landing to give the market one more in keeping with the structure almost daily, to enhance the already popular Moonwatch.

Later inside 1970's, the Speedmaster Professional Mark III become a MARK IV and V (ST 345.0803, German market only), which had thinner cases (approx. 45 mm).
