The Speedmaster 125 celebrated Omega’s 125th anniversary in 1973 with its own caliber 1041, a Lemania-based chronometer certified automatic movement that can only be found in this model.

Speedmaster 125 model celebrating the company’s 125th anniversary. The design quintessentially represents the design elements from the 1970s rolled into one: large, bold, and heavy, but constructed in a way that it wears comfortably on the wrist, with its specially designed integrated bracelet. At a glance, some might be reminded of the dial configuration of the Speedmaster Mark III – with the 24-hour indicator on the left sub-dial, but in a monochromatic dial colorway – and of the angular case shape of the Speedmaster Mark IV.

The applied OMEGA 125 signature at the top is a nice touch differentiating from the other Speedmaster models. The biggest differentiating factor, though, is the movement inside. It is fitted with a Lemania-based caliber 1041 which was only used for this anniversary model. The caliber 1041 was introduced as the first chronometer-certified automatic chronograph movement. There has been some controversy and speculation surrounding the actual quantity that were produced (2000 pieces according to Omega), but regardless, it’s a special creation from a historical and design perspective, and is still fairly undervalued considering that it is an important anniversary piece.
