Omega Speedmaster Analog Quartz 1/100th of a second Chronograph...

This Titanium cased chronograph is exceeding unusual in that it was thought in the greater Speedmaster owner community that Omega never made an analog Quartz Speedmaster. Recently a 1984 Omega catalog surfaced with this watch pictured. We know nothing about it other than it is Titanium and was also offered in Ti/18k Gold.

Omega Speedmaster Automatic Day in a Stainless Steel MoonWatch Case: Ref:Unknown… Cal: 1040, This is an unusual Speedmaster, that was previously unknown and undocumented in any of the standard source books. Similar to the ST376.0822 this example uses the Cal 1040 movement in a Moonwatch styled case. Via email Omega says this is an actual Omega product. I'll post more when I learn it...

Gallet Excel-O-Graph by Racine

Gallet Excel-O-Graph by Racine...

This is a Stainless Steel 3-Register manual wind pilot's watch made during the 1960's and 1970's. It is a fairly simple design which has the look of a Breitling without “B'ling B'ling” that is all too often associated with that brand. Special Thanks to Jeff Stein for pointing out a NOS example that I have purchased. I wouldn't mind getting another someday… (Yes! I'm nuts!) Excelsior Park Cal. 40/68 14''' movement, 17 Jewels.

Have any of these? Please
Please feel free to print out this page and take it with you when you go watch shopping!
