Omega - a 1970s stainless steel Speedmaster Professional chronograph manual wind wrist watch.

Lot 5 (Jewellery, Watches & Handbags, 10th December 2019)

£4,000 - £5,000

Buyer's premium: 25.00%


The black dial with luminous baton hour markers, subsidiary recorder dials to three, six and nine o'clock, with tachymeter bezel, fitted to an unsigned brown suede strap with stainless steel pin buckle, manual wind 861 calibre movement, numbered 145022-69, case 41mm.

Because the 145.022 ran for so many years, there are many sub-references. The first, -68, can be considered a pre-moon watch because it was made in 1968 and though it contains an 861 calibre, it features an applied Omega logo on the dial. The case back is also identical to the 145.012, calibre 321 watch that predated it. Sub-reference -69, this lot, is the first to feature a painted logo on the dial while retaining the original case back on early examples. Later example of the 145.022-68 feature engraved, straight text "The First Watch Worn On The Moon."
