About this watch

I am pleased to announce I am now in possession of a stunning and quite rare original Speedmaster 145.022-68

The Speedmaster 68 was the first Speedmaster to feature Omegas new cal 861 movement whilst still retaining the DON bezel and dial featuring the applied Omega name plus several other traits from earlier Speedmasters This configuration was only manufactured for one year late 1968 to  1969 and is very highly prized more so now than ever before as many have had the bezel or dial removed as the bezel alone can be worth over £3,000 This piece is in great condition with dial ,bezel,crown glass ect all original and the case retains its crisp unpolished edges .

The movement is an early cal 861 with correct 27 milion serial number and looks and functions like new.

The watch itself is only part of the story as the piece also has inner and outer boxes and papers

During the last nearly 50 years someone has replaced the bracelet so I am fitting this to a new old stock  Corfam strap which sets the piece of superbly and is incredibly comfortable to wear .

If you are interested in this piece please register interest asap

its a very exciting piece and in stunning condition

Stock number 488
