1979 OMEGA Speedmaster Professional 145.022 with Box and Papers
(Alan Bean With An Omega Speedmaster Professional On Lunar Surface Of The Moon)
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.

This specific 1979 Ref. 145.022 came to us from the original owner with full service records, inner and outer boxes and correct paperwork. The Speedmaster looks great on the 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.
Omega 1171 Bracelet with 633 End Pieces
CASE & BRACELET
The excellent thick case has some patina from use but we believe the case remains in unpolished condition. The insert shows patina, but all numerals and lettering remain fully intact. The Omega 1171 bracelet has 24 links with 633 end links and shows medium stretch from use.
DIAL & HANDS
The amazing black matte dial is in excellent vintage condition. The tritium markers on the dial have achieved a wonderful creamy yellow patina and the original hands match the dial beautifully with no signs of degradation on the dial or the hands when viewed under U.V. Light.
Watch came from the original owner complete with inner and outer boxes, papers, and service history. The watch was recently serviced and is running at COSC Spec backed by a 1-year warranty on movement.
