FS: Omega Speedmaster Mark II (145.014) Racing Dial

On offer's is a one-owner 1970 Mark II Speedmaster, purchased from the owner's son after he'd discovered it in a drawer after, he suspects, ~40 years. It's all original *everything*, up to an including spring bars.

The 30M cal 861 runs very well. The chrono operates as it should, though the pushers are mildly sticky, as is the crown; my guess is I was the first person to ever open it, and the gaskets have all disintegrated.

The gray racing dial is immaculate, with all colors still bright and all lume present. The hands are in mostly excellent shape, though the chrono seconds counter has darkened in places (I'm not sure what's caused it). The case has never been polished and has retained its graining and sharp bevels. There's a scratch on the caseback, but the markings are otherwise still deep. The mineral crystal has minor scuffs. The watch comes on its original 1159 bracelet with 154 end-links; the bracelet works well, and the clasp is tight, but one end looks to have had a pliers used on it at some point in the past.

Asking $2200. Happy to provide references, more pictures, answer questions, etc.; also happy to work out shipping and payment method with buyer. Thanks for looking, at to Jeff/CT for the space+community.
