Omega Flightmaster 145.013
Movement: manual winding, chronograph
Case: steel, tropical dial
Overview: In 1969, Omega released the Flightmaster. This was the first watch made by Omega to appeal specifically to pilots. It was a 44mm hunk of steel shaped into a futuristic styled case that looks like the intake of a jet engine. The case was finished in a distinctive sunburst finish and sported three crowns. It has a blue 12-hour hand that can be adjusted independently to show another time zone simultaneously without having to resort to military time. Its orange chronograph hands could be substituted to cadmium yellow as a no-cost special order option…. yellow shows up better under the infrared cockpit lights of a plane.
