Saw this at a secondhand dealer yesterday

When I was on my Way to buy the new Tudor Bronze
Always had mixed emotions about this MK40.
The many colors ... a bit too much. Black, white, blue, grey, red, yellow  
The size .. ONLY 39 and I do prefer the 42 mm professional speedmaster
Automatic while I do prefer  manual winding

On the other hand all the colors do make it pretty cool, the 39mm well I won't wear it every day, the automatic ... all My Rolexes and Tudors are automatic
And the extra complications like day, date, month, day and night indicator plus of course the chronograph
Well looking at the average market price (which went up a little because of that Hodinkee LE) ... and seeing it 'available' in front of me I just had to buy it smile









55 serial numer so made in 1995








FYI






and some close ups




















and off topic but that was the Tudor I went for   .... unfortunately I came across this Omega too and went home with 2 watches









Not a fan of the Omega... but so much more consistent than the reedition... [nt]

The Omega is really cool.

Nice find.

Good hunting on these two pieces!

Congratulations on getting the real thing rather than the dog's breakfast Hodinkee junk

Back in the late 90s I nearly bought this, in fact, ordered it in for approval at the AD, but in the end plumped for a Speedmaster Pro because of the illegibility of the chrono seconds track.  All it need was lengthened seconds tick marks.

The number engraved on the back isn't a movement number, Bruno . . .

. . . so the chart info doesn't really apply.  I remember seeing these on dealer's shelves over twenty years ago, so a '95 production date isn't impossible, but it would be coincidental. 

The numbers engraved on the back represent the case, or serial, number.

Best,
