Up for grabs is an Omega Speedmaster Professional
145.022 reference transitional Pre-Moon model with Cal. 861 movement
305962XX serial number circa late 1970
Excellent vintage condition case with no major dings, dents, or deep scratches. No corrosion or pitting. Nicely defined case and lugs. Previous owner had the watch refinished in brushed finish throughout instead of just sides.
Dial is the winner on this watch. Excellent condition, correct step, clean, yellow tritium. No scratches, uneven aging, or bubbling. No cracking in minute or hour hands, great patina there as well. Chrono seconds hand has been replaced, obviously.
Bezel is correct and NOT dot over 90. DON inserts were stopped in mid ’69. Excellent condition.
Caseback is in excellent condition with crisp Seamonster on back. Stamped 145.022 – 69 inside.
Comes on original Omega 1039 bracelet with ’70 date stamp, 516 ends, and enough links to fit a large wrist about 8″.
Watch is presented as found locally. I have just replaced the original crystal with OEM Omega hesalite due to heavy scratching in other one.
Watch is running well and strong with chrono running and resetting as should. Good amplitude and running at about +2 seconds a day.
No box or papers.
