Lemania / Omega Caliber 861


If we are talking about icons, first we will talk about Caliber 321, and then what followed which is iconic caliber 861 which is still being made for Omega in different models. The 861 was very similar to the 321, but replaced its column wheel switching mechanism with a cam and increased the beat rate from 18,000 to 21,600 vibrations per hour. Most Speedmaster Professional watches from 1968 to the present have used variants of this movement, including the modern rhodium-plated caliber 1861 and decorated exhibition calibers 863 and 1863. A standard Speedmaster Professional model with Plexiglas crystal, solid caseback with anti-vibration and anti-magnetic dust cover, tachymeter scale, without date or day complications, and powered by a caliber 861-based movement has been continuously produced since. The tritium-powered phosphorescent lume on the hands and index markers of the original watches were replaced at the end of the 1990s with non-radioactive pigments, but the fundamental design, dimensions, and mechanism of these watches have remained unchanged. In this form, the basic Speedmaster line has remained flight-qualified for NASA space missions and EVAs, after re-evaluation by NASA in 1972 and for use in the Space Shuttle program in 1978. The current such model is reference 311.30.42.30.01.005 (since 2014).


This is a beauty. It is very rare to find a Lemania movement like this the company that made all the Omega speedmaster & SeaMaster Movement. All the legendary movements.  It is very rare to find a watch this old with Baume & Mercier box. Defiantly a collector watch. Please look at all the pictures, as they are part of the description. The watch is working and Serviced. Contact me if you have any questions first.
