This is a rare stainless steel Omega Speedmaster Professional Gemini V 3597.03.00. It has an integral stainless steel link Omega bracelet with a stainless steel double folding deployment clasp, and a Plexiglas crystal.

The dial is black with white luminous baton hour indices, white luminous baton hands, and a white luminous center sweep chronograph hand. Around the perimeter is a minute/one-fifth second track. There are three subsidiary dials: one with the Gemini V patch logo for the running seconds is at 9 o'clock, and there is a 12-hour register at 6 o'clock, and a 30-minute chronograph totalizer is at 3 o'clock. It has a 48-hour power reserve at full wind, and it's water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet. The 14mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.
