Condition Report

CASE

The case is in very good overall condition, with some minor nicks visible throughout. The case, in our view, has likely seen a very light polishing in its past. The lyre lugs retain good proportions and their beveled edges. The caseback retains the original Omega Speedmaster logo with the Seahorse engraving.


DIAL

The dial is in good overall condition. The hour markers and hands have been relumed long ago, and the chronograph hand is possibly replaced.


MOVEMENT

The chronograph function is operating properly, and dustcap is still present. The movement is running at time of cataloguing, however it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.
