Vintage Omega Flightmaster Chronograph GMT Watch with Yellow Hands -  Ref. 145.036 - c.1975.

This chunky Omega Flightmaster gents vintage wristwatch (model reference no. 145.036 dates to, c.1975) has a charcoal grey dial with eye catching yellow hands (a version with red hands was also made, and the Omega Museum in Switzerland list a pair of 145.036 in their collection, one from 1971 and the other from 1972.) 

The watch is sold on its original Omega 1162 steel linked bracelet with 172 end pieces, finished with a folding clasp.

One of Omega’s larger vintage models (with a case width of 43mm) the Flightmaster was used by professional pilots, along with aviation enthusiasts and global travellers.

The main dial is a standard chronograph with three sub dials displaying constant seconds and registers for recording minutes and hours. The elegantly curved, stainless steel case has colour coded crowns to the left side for adjusting the secondary hour hand along with rotating the inner bezel which can also be used to measure time elapsed by lining the triangular marker up with either the minute or either one of the hour hands.

The Flightmaster also has a 12-hour GMT complication, with the hand moving independently and set through the auxiliary crown, located at 10 o’clock on the case. 

The case back features a crisply engraved DC-8 super 61 Jet aeroplane along with the word ‘Flightmaster’ and the instantly recognisable Omega symbol.

Despite its substantial size and robust appearance, the Omega Flightmaster Chronograph GMT is extremely comfortable to wear, due to the ergonomics of the case, a style that Omega refers to as the ‘pilot line.’ Cut from a single block of Swedish stainless steel, the upper case was pressed and tempered sixteen times before assuming its unique elliptical shape, designed to fit the contours of the wrist like a second skin. 

The watch has a fully functional hand wound movement, powered by a calibre 911 movement, with 17 jewels. 

 

What’s on offer:

This piece is sold without a box or papers but will be supplied in a Vintage Watch Specialist leather pouch, as per our photos.  

The watch is an honest example of the model, with original Omega unpolished case (sharp edges and crisp sunburst finish.)
