Last week, we received pictures of this round Speedmaster Quartz LCD of one of our readers. The Speedmaster Quartz LCD was available in two flavours in the 1970s, a square shaped model and a round model. Both feature the quartz Omega caliber 1620 movement.

Perhaps – if you are a Speedmaster connoisseur – you already noticed something is not correct on the Speedmaster above. It lacks a black bezel and also the word ‘Light’ that should be below ‘Spit’ is missing. Either someone has been really enthusiastic in touching the dial or it is a misprint. We guess it is the first (unfortunately). Below an example of a proper Speedmaster Quartz LCD configuration of the same reference number.

    My husband asked for an Omega watch for Christmas but I had never heard of them until now. I think they’re cute, but I was expecting some Rolex prices or something haha.
