Vintage Omega Speedmaster Professional ¨220 misprint bezel¨ 145.022-69 from 1970
The Omega speedmaster, also known as the ´Moonwatch´, has always been the most iconic watch made by Omega. When the 42mm beast made it to the lunar surface on the wrist of Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong the watch withstood the pressures and forces brought upon it and thus became the first watch worn on the moon. The amazing Speedmaster we are offering here is a very special Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022-69 from 1970!
This special Omega Speedmaster runs on the famous and incredibly reliable cal. 861 manual wound movement made by Omega. This movement is placed inside a 42mm speedmaster case with the shaped lugs we are used to seeing on speedmasters from this period. Attached to the case is a very special bezel, one with a misprint! The misprint on this bezel can be seen at the .220 mark, where there should have been .200 instead. The amazing vintage dial and hands however are the true star of the show. With deep sunken sub-dials for its chronograph function and an incredible step dial where the minute track and the center of the dial meet, this watch leaves a warm feeling for every watch enthusiast! The overall condition of this watch is excellent, with fine vintage features like a faded bezel and a nice patina in both the hands and hour markers. The case has some minor scratches but no signs of over-polishing.
