Here we have an excellent original example of a late 60s Speedmaster.
The MKII variation of the classic Speedmaster has an interesting history. It was designed specifically for space yet never left the Earth's atmosphere and production of it then ceased a few years later in 1972. At the time it was overshadowed by its older brother which made it to the moon.
The design has always been a little bit marmite and has split collector opinions, many loving the 70s style thick tonneau case and quirky look while others have stuck to the classic Speedmaster design. Personally I think this offers excellent value for money if you would like a vintage 'Speedy'.
This has an internal tachymetre bezel fixed to the underside of the crystal rather than a classic bezel. Technically you get all the same features as the standard Speedmaster with the cal 861, identical chronograph display and hands.
The bracelet differs a little too, with straight bar end links that fit slightly under the case giving a 'hidden end link; effect.
The case measures 41mm across and has a thick 15mm depth to it.
The bracelet has a standard fold over deployant clasp.

The watch is in overall good original condition. We have not polished this at all and have eft it in original condition. The case shows only light wear and the crystal has minimal wear too. The bracelet has only light wear but does show some stretching.
