Omega Speedmaster Early ref 3590.50 (145.022) circa 1989

SOLD

An exceptionally pleasing looking  Omega Speedmaster ref 3590.50 (145.022) movement serial # 48 million circa 1989. Featuring a 42mm diameter stainless steel case in unpolished condition. With black original dial with tritium indexes and hands all beautifully aged. This is truly one of the more unmarred and stunning dials we have seen on a Speedmaster.  Also featured are the trademark hesalite crystal, and black tachymeter bezel, again in superb condition.

This particular example is furthermore interesting in that it sits directly at the beginning of production of the reference and acts as a very visible bridge between the moon era Speedmasters, and the later editions. The inside caseback is stamped 145.022, which very few of these watches have, with most moving on to read 145.0022. We know this caseback is correct when combined with the early production year and with the specific 861 movement beating inside the watch. The 3590.50 came with two variations of the famous 861 caliber, an early 17 jewel variant, and later an 18 jewel one. This example features the earlier 17 jewel example, and as seen in photos is in pristine condition. The watch further comes with its original ref# 1479 bracelet with deployment clasp and 812 end links. This watch is as original and correct as you could get, has been serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, and is offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

Includes our fine glazed Italian leather pouch, perfect for travel and storage. A $45 value.
