This Omega Speedmaster transitional model Ref. 145.022 dates this specific example too early 1970 uses the earlier Caliber 861 movement. The original matte black stepped dial has achieved a wonderful patina and the bezel insert has the original dot over 90 (DON) bezel, and pre-moon seahorse case back. This specific example is a very rare last production pre-moon reference.
The step dial or "Pie Pan" Omega Speedmaster's possess a charm and feel that that the new modern equivalents don't seem to quite have. The Ref 145.022 with the workhorse Cal. 861 movement is clearly built to last. The Speedmaster looks great on the bracelet as well as a handcrafted leather strap. It is one of our favorite chronographs due to its timeless design and functionality. Its versatility to be paired with the most formal and the most casual of wardrobe also makes the Speedmaster a good choice for the first vintage timepiece and or a classic daily driver.

CASE & BRACELET
The honest case retains original factory finishing and sharp lugs that we believe remains in unpolished condition, showing some wear. The original bezel insert is "Dot over 90" (DON) and is in excellent vintage condition, with light consistent wear throughout. The "Pre-Moon" Seahorse case back has very minimal wear and is clearly visible. The crown on the watch is an early service replacement, the original crown will come off the watch.
DIAL & HANDS
Amazing black matte "step" dial in amazing vintage condition. The tritium markers on the dial have achieved a charming ivory patina. The lume plots remain fully intact with no lume degradation when viewed under U.V. light. The tritium hands have taken on a darker patina and show no lume loss and also remain fully intact.
The watch will come with the original crown off of the watch. The watch was recently serviced and is running at COSC Spec backed by a 1-year warranty on movement.
