This flightmaster has had a full movement overhaul to OMEGA specifications and the case has been fully refinished with all new crowns, tubes

and pushers. The case sides have NOT been flattened and retain their

correct slight concave profile. A new case back has been fitted,

although the original will be included with the sale.

 

This flightmaster's serial number puts it around 1971 and it appears to

be the rare transitional model. The watch came with two dials, the one

you see fitted to the watch and one that appears identical but hasn't

aged that well. On closer inspection the loose dial has a step and no

dots at 3,6,9 meaning for those of you playing along at home with the excellent book 'Flightmaster Only', it is the B1 dial. I decided to refit the

better (cosmetically) of the two dials which is a B3. Apart from the step, these two dials look essentially the same apart from some small details.

 

The spare dial looks better in the photos than it does in person,

unfortunately it has a bit of a muddy appearance. If you would like it

refitted for reasons of authenticity then I would be happy to do so.

Either way, it will be included in the sale.

 

When it arrived this 145.026 was fitted with a full set of service hands. I happened to have in stock an original NOS set of tritium hour and

minute hands, so these were fitted along with a relumed to match GMT hand. The subdial hands were repainted in yellow. The centre seconds

hand is a service replacement.

 

A nearly new 1162/172 is fitted to which I have added a correct vintage

clasp cover found loitering in a drawer here at LWC. The service clasp

cover will be included.
