OMEGA SPEEDMASTER ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION REF. 3693.50.81
In 1998, to celebrate its 150th anniversary, Omega launched reference 3693.50.81, a limited edition of the “Replica” Speedmaster. With a limited edition of only 150 pieces, this Speedmaster is an extremely rare and very hard to find watch. Its main features are an 18-karat yellow gold case, a black dial and the “Broad Arrow”, the 18kt gold caseback with commemorative inscriptions, the sapphire crystal and the 1863 caliber. The bracelet could be either 18-karat yellow gold or leather with a deployant clasp like the present specimen.
This Omega Speedmaster ref. 3693.50.81 150th Anniversary has been cared for with extreme care and attention over the years. The condition is simply amazing: the case has never been polished and has deep stamps and a pleasant oxidation patina, the dial is perfect, as is the caliber 1863. Most likely stored in a safe for many years and hardly used, this specimen is undoubtedly one of the best preserved examples to come on the market. The watch is completely original and correct for the year of manufacture.
Serial number 48.378, XXX, Limited Edition of 150 pieces, year 1998.
