1969 Omega Flightmaster Chronograph Stainless Steel Stem Wind Wristwatch
A 1969 Omega Flightmaster chronograph stainless steel stem wind wristwatch. A luxury watch designed for use in aviation and space flight with a color-coded dial that has each function shown in a different color for legibility and each crown comes with the corresponding function color applied to the tip for easy use. This distinctive watch normally comes with red chronograph hands but was special ordered with yellow hands. The yellow hands allowed them to be easily read under infra-red cabin lights which are found in some aircraft. This unique stainless steel chronograph watch was purchased at the U.S. embassy in Germany in 1970 with the special order yellow hands.
