Spring driven with lever escapement. Manual winding. Caliber Omega 911.
Robust stainless steel housing, oblique on the top. Black dial on which a series of data. On the main dial that has a mark from 0 to 60 (more specifically from 5 to 55 and the triangle in position 0) on the movable ring on the edge, the white hands are for reading hours and minutes, the orange hand is the chronograph hand (starts and stops by pressing the top button right, returns to the starting position with a button below), and an additional blue hand that records the time spent in flight or the time at two different locations. There are three smaller dials – the second dial that shows the time when the watch works, and the minute (30 minutes) and hour dials that are activated and deactivated with the chronograph. An additional hour hand (blue) can be adjusted and run by a button on the left side up, and the ring rotates using the button below.
Model Omega Flightmaster is a derivative of the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch intended primarily for pilots, and drafted in the period from 1969 to the beginning of the seventies. Then Omega developed a mechanical mechanism adapted to the needs of pilots. It was made in two versions – caliber 910 and 911. On the model 910, small second dial at 9 o'clock position has been replaced by a 24-hour indicator.
