Quick Takes is where we pick an uncommon watch that passes through our hands and give a mini review. This week we're looking at the Omega Flightmaster.
The Flightmaster is a manual wind chronograph, produced in the 70s and designed for pilots. This particular iteration has an internal rotating bezel and auxiliary 12-hour hand that can be used to keep track of a separate time zone.
What do we like about it?
- It's huge! 44mm with a funky 70's design. It has incredible presence on the wrist
- The 12 hour hand is particularly useful and easy to set to a different time zone, unlike many GMT models of the period where the 2nd time zone can't be independently set
- Its been on the wrist of astronauts!
