A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE SPECIAL WATCHES FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTOR

Omega Speedmaster 145.022-69 Single Owner

Wonderful original 1969 Speedmaster, all correct and fully serviced, from a single ownership.

This is exceptional quality. Note the flawless bezel, dial and hands.

The Dial is slightly brown, and is very high quality.

The case shows some minor wear and minor corrosion at lip (pictured). Bracelet is tight, showing little use.

Of note is the presence of a new looking delrin brake. As this was not fitted until around 32m I am supposing this was fitted during the Omega service that the previous owner had done, at Omega, where the original hands were replaced by Superluminova – as the original hands were returned I re fitted the original hands, which by some miracle were undamaged.

This is a wonderful, special, single owner watch

Criticisms:

  1. The delrin brake is normally seen on later movements, but the rest of the movement is in excellent condition and apparently original. It had an Omega service.
  2. There is minor corrosion under lugs. This has been stabilized, and I do not regard it as anything other than minor
  3. Bracelet may be a link short for some people (7 1/4 inches) and require a link fitted
