The Omega Speedmaster Professional is by far one of our most favorite chronographs. The Speedmaster has an incredible history starting with automotive racing moving into flight and eventually to NASA and the U.S. Space Program.  There are many subtle differences within the vintage Omega Speedmaster range of references that make them all slightly unique and different.

The step dial or "Pie Pan" Omega Speedmaster's possess a charm and feel that the new modern equivalents don't seem to quite have. The Ref 145.022 with the workhorse Cal. 861 movement is clearly built to last. The Speedmaster looks great on a bracelet as well as a handcrafted leather strap. It is one of our favorite chronographs due to its timeless design and functionality. Its versatility to be paired with the most formal and the most casual of wardrobe also makes the Speedmaster a good choice for the first vintage timepiece and or a classic daily driver.

The impressive case is believed to remain unpolished and retains crisp factory finishing with very minimal signs of previous use. The black tachymetre "dot over 90"  bezel is in exceptional condition, showing no fading and almost no signs of use. The case retains its original pump pushers and Omega signed crown. The "pre moon" case back retains its factory markings in crisp and deep condition. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.


The matte black "pie-pan" dial is in absolutely stunning condition, exhibiting no damage or aging. The tritium lume plots have aged to a charming and vivid yellow coloration and display no degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly, under U.V. light inspection the minute hand displays some minor cracking and remains stable, the hour and chronograph hands remain fully intact.


The watch is running and functioning correctly, previous service history is unknown.
