Pre-owned Omega Speedmaster Professional Ref. 145.022-69 ST, with a 42mm stainless steel case, steel bezel with black aluminium lunette with tachymetric scale, black “Step Dial” dial with Tritium indices and hands and 3 sub-dials: 30-minute recorder at 3 o’clock, 12-hour recorder at 6 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock. Plexiglass crystal, automatic movement calibre 861. Original steel bracelet with deployant clasp with Omega logo.
The Speedmaster Ref.145.022-69 began in production the same year as the moon landing and is knwon as a "Pre-Moon" model. Powered with the 861 movement (with 48-hour power reserve), this beautiful timepiece comes with a caseback featuring the simple Omega Hippocampus logo (and not the commemorative design seen on watches after the landing) and the "Step Dial" characteristic of this reference.
In a very good condition and optimum operation. Watch only (without original box and papers).
Read more about this watch...
Chosen by NASA scientists as capable of going into space on the arms of the first astronauts, the Omega Speedmaster was orbiting in space in the early 1960s and eventually ended up landing on the moon in 1969 with Buzz Aldrin (Neil Armstrong left his inside the spacecraft). Since those days, Omega has made a slew of Speedmaster models.
The reference 145.022 was the very first Speedmaster to use the caliber 861, which replaced the revered caliber 321 from the very first models. This was just about the only significant change made to the faithful Speedmaster, as it features the same 42mm case with lyre lugs of the previous reference 145.012.
The Speedmaster model and more specifically the "Pre-moon" references are highly sought-after pieces for collectors and space history enthusiasts. Including this timepiece in your private collection is about to have a small piece of humankind history.
