Title: Omega Speedmaster 125 Anniversary Ref 378.0801 Cal 1041 Automatic Chronograph

Description: According to the official Omega website, "This model was the world’s first automatic chronograph to receive an official Chronometer Certification. It was released to celebrate the founding of the OMEGA brand in 1848 and 2,000 pieces were produced to mark the occasion. The watch’s adventurous spirit was embraced by the Russian cosmonaut Vladimir Dzhanibekov who wore the Speedmaster 125 in 1978 when he spent a total of 145 days and 16 hours in space." The Omega website goes on to offer the following information regarding the movement used in this amazing watch, "the calibre 1041 was the “Officially Chronometer Certified” version of the calibre 1040. This, in fact, made it officially the world’s first automatic chronograph-chronometer. It had a high frequency of 28,800 v/h which improved OMEGA’s precision and was innovatively created with a rotor mounted on a ball-bearing. The functions included a date indicator, a 24-hour indicator with day/night reading and a rapid date-setting device."

The example on offer is all original including the bracelet. According to some reports many of these watches were returned to Omega for repairs and the bands were frequently replaced with ref. 1225 bracelets. The watch offered is all original including the ref. 1221/212 original bracelet and the watch maintains is original unpolished case.
The watch will fit a size 7.25-7.50 inch wrist - sorry we do not have any links or the original box.
