An excellent example of the 3511.50 Omega Speedmaster Black dial Chronograph.
Whilst 26 years old there's nothing about the design of this watch that would stop it from mixing with the best of the new Omegas in the shop window! At 39mm diameter it's still a sizeable watch but not as huge as some today. Clearly it's been well cared for with only micro scratches and dings.

The additional facility of this Speedmaster is its stopwatch which is what the full size seconds hand is for. Correctly centred at 12, push the top pusher and the stopwatch starts. Push it again and the stopwatch stops with the seconds hand held in position for the reading. A push on the bottom pusher re-centres the hand. The sub-dial at 12 records the stopwatch for up to 30 minutes whilst the sub-dial at 6 records it for up to 12 hours. The sub-dial at 9 is for the usual seconds. It has a quick-set date - pull out the crown one click and rotate it clockwise to advance the date. Pull it out an addition click to adjust the time. This is an automatic mechanical watch which gains its power when worn on the wrist from the movement of the wrist. This energy is harnessed by a metal rotor which winds the watch up as you move.
The dial is matt black with no marks even when viewed through a jewellers loupe. The three sunken sub-dials are in contrasting silver with a guilloche finish. The hands and stopwatch hand are white and contrast well with the black dial whilst the sub-dial hands are black contrasting well with their silver dials. Luminous hour batons and luminous inserts to the hour and minute hand. As a technical dial the minute index (and stopwatch seconds index) are further divided in 1/5th of a minute or second. Signed Omega, Automatic, Speedmaster and Swiss Made in white. The crystal is unmarked and probably a generic replacement.
The stainless steel case is in excellent condition with only micro scratches and marks. The two pushers and crown show little signs of wear and are original. The bezel is stamped with a tachymetric scale with the numbers printed in black with no loss of paint. The case-back is in equally good condition with only micro scratches present. The Omega emblem in the centre shows little signs of ware. The movement serial number is still clearly visible.
Opening the snap-fit case-back reveals the highly respected Omega calibre 1155 calibre. This highly regarded movement is one of the most accurate non-chronometer movements available.
Comes with its original Omega 813 bracelet in excellent condition.
Complete with Omega grey box, outer cardboard box, original guarantee card, card holder, dealer and service pamphlets.
A superb timepiece not to be missed!
