Overall, not too much has changed in terms of design. On one version, the dial – like the 1969 original – remains mostly monochromatic, with subdued white hour markers and hands set against a dark grey background. For anyone looking to make a statement, another version based on the so-called “racing dial” Mark II features a bold fluorescent orange center chronograph seconds hand and bright hour markers in the minutes track that are sure to be noticed. There is no information yet on the size of this case, even if the profile looks like it mirrors the original pretty closely.

The Speedmaster Mark II will be available after Baselworld 2014, with the price and more details to come shortly. For more information, visit Omega online
