This Speedmaster has a mother of pearl dial and pink numerals, but the same mechanicals as a regular black dialed Speedy. Model reference 3834.74.34. or 175.0042
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
While we have the original instruction book, we don’t have the warranty card for this watch. However, from the serial number hallmark on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1998.
When this was new it was marketed as a ladies watch, but is a 39mm chronograph a ladies watch just because it has a splash of pink? We don’t think so, and this can be worn with a black strap to make it look more manly, or it can be softened with a pink or white strap – it is actually quite versatile. The mother of pearl dial is excellent, with blues, greens and pinks coming through nicely. The case is great, with just slight marks on the bezel to report (but they are slight). The movement is Omegas 47 jewel calibre 3220, which is the same as fitted to all Speedmaster Reduced (so called as the original Speedmasters had a 42mm case) models of this time. The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred – we opted for a black strap with curved ends to fit the case better, and it is paired to the original Omega clasp.
This watch will be supplied with the original inner and outer presentation boxes, instruction book and our Certificate of Authenticity.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon. By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
