Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch None NASA very rare SOLD
Rare is a word often bandied around when the rarity of the subject is dubious however in this instance I am delighted to offer any serious Speedmaster collectors the once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a Speedmaster reference 145 .022-71 Non NASA.
For those of you that dont realise why this watch had my pulse rating when I discovered it in a shop window in Switzerland let me briefly describe what makes this piece so sought after .
This example Like all other recorded versions was made in 1971 and delivered to Switzerland in 1972 and in every aspect but one it is identical to all reference 145.022-69 and 145.022-71 but that one difference is what makes all the difference,. the case back of this very rare reference has no wording just a raised central medallion and no other wording due to the fact that these few examples were produced before NASA and Omega decided on the wording that would follow .
So now to this particular piece and I am delighted to say that not only is it rare but it is also in outstanding completely original condition throughout ,even the bracelet and clasp look almost new .I sincerely doubt I will ever be able to offer such a rare Speedmaster again and never in this outstanding condition so please be quick.
