About this watch

This desirable Omega Speedmaster Professional, manufactured in 1971, is part of the Speedmaster line, introduced in 1957 for the racing and sports world, arrived on the scene with two innovational design features; the tachymeter placed on the bezel away from the dial made space for the 12-hour, triple-register chronograph layout which became a signature of the series.

This watch, reference 145.022-69ST, with a case size of 42mm has the Omega calibre 861 hand wound chronograph movement. The stepped dial is in perfect condition with printed Omega logo and original matching hands.

All functions work correctly and the chronograph resets to zero. The movement has been fully serviced and regulated.

A little history:
The dial of the original Speedmaster watches featured a raised metal Omega logo, referred to as an applied logo. Between the years 1968-69 the applied logo was replaced with the printed logo.

In the same year:
On July 16 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins head for the moon; The Italian Job, a British film about a gold bullion heist, starring Michael Caine and with a soundtrack by Quincy Jones is released in cinemas; Charles De Gaulle resigns for the last time as leader of France.
