Flightmaster Only, The Omega pilot’s watch by Grégoire Rossier and Anthony Marquié
The highly evocative Flightmaster name was first mentioned by Omega in 1956-57, but it was not until the late 1960s that it was used to designate an incomparable watch, initially intended for aircraft pilots. At the time, it was regarded as the watch industry equivalent of the Swiss army knife, meaning the ultimate professional instrument. The aesthetically and technically remarkable Omega Flightmaster symbolizes a period rich in technological and design breakthroughs.
Produced over a short period and relatively little known until now, it nonetheless enjoyed exceptional development and an outstanding destiny, notably on the wrist of Soviet cosmonauts in the 1970s.
The authors of the successful MOONWATCH ONLY book dedicated to the Omega Speedmaster provide a comprehensive account of the many variations and evolutions of the different Flightmaster models, based on their original methodology. They reveal for the first time an entirely unknown and remarkably rich story.
FLIGHTMASTER ONLY is intended to serve as a reference work for all passionate enthusiasts and collectors of the Omega brand.
