Lot Essay

With Omega Extract from the Archives confirming that the present watch was especially delivered with inscription "Flightmaster" on the dial for the Peruvian Air Force on 5 January 1960.

This watch is one of the exceedingly rare "Flightmaster" models made for the Peruvian Air Force, Fuerza Aérea del Perú, or FAP. Ref. CK 2914, better known as "Railmaster", was launched in 1957 and designed for professionals working near magnetic fields. Following the request of the Peruvian Airforce, the designation on watches ordered for their members was changed to "Fightmaster".

Formally established since 1950, the FAP ordered a variety of instruments from commercial manufacturers, including wristwatches. The very first official supplier was Omega, starting in 1958. The watches available to the members of the Air Force were featured in the Fuerza's catalogue of "functional watches for aviation".

The present "Flightmaster" is furthermore preserved in excellent overall condition, still retaining the original crystal with the etched Omega logo to the centre and the period stainless steel semi-extendable bracelet stamped 2.59.
