1991 OMEGA Speedmaster Professional (Ref. 145.022)
(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.
The ref. 145.022 with the workhorse Cal. 861 movements is clearly built to last. 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.

The excellent asymmetrical case appears to have been lightly polished in the past and retains full and even lugs that show light signs of use. The case retains its original Omega signed crown and pump pushers. The original Omega 1479 bracelet with 812 end pieces is in remarkable condition, retaining 20 links that show almost no stretch from use.
The matte black dial is in excellent original condition with only minimal signs of age seen between the 2 and 3 o'clock marker. The tritium lume plots have achieved a gorgeous yellow patina and display no degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is running perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty or accurate timekeeping.
