Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch - Reference 145.022 69-ST - HF Case - c.1970 ***OH HOLD***
A Superb Vintage Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch (145.022 69-ST) Issued in 1970 Boasting Huguenin Frères Twisted Lug Case and Original "Dot Over 90 Bezel" - A Real Gem of an Example of the Pre-Moon Speedy!
Having accompanied all six Apollo lunar missions, the Omega Speedmaster is engraved into the horological halls of fame. Originally conceived in 1957 - when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the lunar surface in 1969, the Speedmaster became the first watch ever worn on the moon, it has since become the watch that has served on the most lunar missions.
What’s On Offer
A watch that barely needs any introduction, the legendary Omega Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch', is in beautiful and original condition and features the iconic twisted lugs case made by "Huguenin Frères" (Huguenin Freres made watch cases for many companies including Universal Geneve, Omega and Zenith) - this watch really is a gem!
Boasting additional sought-after details such as the dot over 90 bezel (DoN), Omega signed crystal and beautifully aged lume, this really is a beauty!
The intense black dial with striking white accents, original lume on the hour plots, and stepped triple chronograph counters are all in fine shape. The watch is in superb vintage condition with only minor signs of wear which are to be expected considering it is well over 50 years old.
At some point in time, the original bracelet has been replaced with a later version, but still a genuine Omega bracelet, and in our opinion, it does look well and of course, it is more practical and comfortable to wear and much more robust than the original flat link bracelets this reference will have been supplied on!
