Omega Speedmaster “Straight Writing” ref 145.022-69 Calibre 861 circa 1973

$9,500.00

Vintage Omega Speedmaster with rare “Straight Writing” caseback. Ref 145.022-69 with calibre 861 movement, serial # 32.8 million circa 1970. 42mm diameter case with gray/black tachometer bezel showing wear and use. Very nice condition original matte black stepped dial with tritium indexes and replaced Luminova hands. This Speedmaster has the first generation of caseback after the famous “Pre-moon” pieces, featuring the text “The First Watch Worn on the Moon” in straight text across the metal. On the next version the text is circular and features the Hippocampus logo. This version is incredibly rare and is an interesting bridge between the Space Race and the post moon Speedys.

Watch has been fully serviced and is in excellent condition for timekeeping and operation of the chronograph functions. Also accompanying the watch is a period Omega box.
