About the Watch
The Flightmaster series was launched in 1969 as Omega's first timepiece created specifically for pilots. This model featured unique functions tailored to the requirements of pilots, such as an AM/PM indicator to keep track of the time at home while traveling, and a GMT hand shaped like a rocket for monitoring two different time zones. The watch also came equipped with a 12-hour chronograph and a 60-minute inner elapsed-time rotating bezel, offering multiple ways to time events. After a few years in production, Omega updated the movement by replacing the AM/PM indicator with a running seconds hand, which is particularly useful for hand-wound watches as it allows the user to quickly check if the watch is running. To emphasize the Flightmaster's aviation purpose, Omega engraved a DC-8 onto the caseback, leaving no doubt about its intended use. For anyone seeking a genuine pilot's tool watch, the Flightmaster is an exceptionally impressive choice.
About the Brand
Omega has constantly been defined by its pioneering spirit, demonstrated by its conquests of the oceans as well as space. Since 1965, the Omega Speedmaster has been worn on each of NASA's piloted missions including all six moon landings and many of history’s greatest explorations beyond Earth. Omega also has served as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932. In watchmaking, Omega’s history has been dedicated to a quest for perfection. This legacy continued in 1999 with the launch of the revolutionary Co-Axial escapement and, in 2015, with the world’s first Master Chronometer. Due to being approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), watches with the designation Master Chronometer can withstand a pressure of up to 15'000 Gauss.

5 Reasons for Vintage
Watches that only a few wearReason Nr. 1
Nowadays, many high-quality watches are mass-produced. Vintage watches were often made in very small series with skilled craftsmanship instead of robots.
Quality that endures generationsReason Nr. 2
In earlier eras, watches were designed to last forever, including the components. There is no such thing as obsolescence. That is what we consider quality at Zurichberg.
Polarizing and characteristic designsReason Nr. 3
Today, only a few watch manufacturers can afford to launch polarising products and therefore produce watches that are aesthetically pleasing to all.
Value for MoneyReason Nr. 4
Vintage watches are overall cheaper than new watches. This is because new watches fulfill the essential financial objectives for the manufacturers, whereas vintage watches are financially "depreciated", so to speak.
Longevity that feels greatReason Nr. 5
We believe that in order to move towards a more sustainable future, it is absolutely necessary and logical to develop a sense for the quality of the past and to reuse products instead of producing new ones.
