(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 wonderful case shows some patina but remains thick and in overall excellent condition. The bezel has a light patina, remaining free from blemishing and scratches. The Omega 1479 bracelet with 812 end pieces shows light wear from use, exhibiting little to no stretch.
The gorgeous black matte is in overall stunning condition. The tritium markers have taken on a subtle creamy patina, giving the watch a charming aesthetic. The original tritium hands have aged slightly lighter, but match the overall appearance of the watch. Under U.V. light inspection, both the dial and hands remain fully intact showing no signs of degradation.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is running at COSC Spec backed by a 1-year warranty on movement.
