Model reference 145 022.69 is an important reference for Speedmaster fans and although produced in significant numbers it remains elusive and to find one in great condition with all original dial crown hands glass and most importantly the DON bezel and when you look at just the bezel on this piece I challenge anyone to find one in better condition please understand that for those that dont know the bezel alone on this outstanding watch would sell to a collector for £3,000
The famous shaped 42 mm stainless steel case proudly shows some minor blemishes as any serious vintage watch lover would prefer when compared to some of the horrific over polished examples on offer ,this case has crisp edges as it should .
The mechanical wind cal 861 movement keeps great time and all functions work exactly as they should.
This watch is fitted currently to a very high quality genuine Omega padded strap with Omega deployment clasp if you prefer I have period straps and bracelets we can discuss separately
This beautiful piece also benefits from a recent service by vintage Omega expert Simon Freese
