For Sale is an Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022-69 Transitional. Applied Metal Logo, DON Bezel, Seahorse Caseback with correct stamping, and serial number in known range. Powered by the Omega Caliber 861, this watch looks to be in good daily wear condition, roughly 80% on the TZ scale. Serial Number in the 27323xxx area dates it to the last of the known transitional manufacture dates. Comes with an Omega Extract of the Archives, which confirms the manufacture date in March of 1969. Tritium dial has aged to a medium corn hue, with lots of original tritium on the indices, Applied Metal Logo in great shape, and overall in very good to excellent overall condition with very few marks and a nice, defined step. Hands are tritium as well, but seem to be aging at a different rate/color than the dial so may have been replacements during a previous service sometime before the mid-90s. Case appears to have been polished in the past, with small surface scratches and a few small nicks and dings here and there. The Dot Over Ninety bezel has faded to a nice bluish charcoal grey and shows minimal paint loss and no large damage. The Seahorse caseback with 149022-69 stamping on the inside has some tool marks but is in overall good condition, with the engraving still deep, sharp and fully visible. The movement was fully serviced and comes with a year warranty. Showing about 3 seconds of gain per day. Movement, chronograph function and crown are operating as intended, and pushers are very solid. Acrylic crystal has the Omega logo. Bracelet is a No. 12 with 47 end links - this is the same specs as the more widely known 1175. Not original to the watch, as indicated by the bracelet model number and the Omega Extract, but rather may have been added at a later date. Item includes the following:
-No. 12 / 47 bracelet currently sized to roughly 7-7/8". Shows room to expand to roughly 8-1/4"
-Omega Extract of the Archives
Item Specifics are:
-20mm wide bracelet
-48 hour power reserve
-Omega 861 Manual movement
