  • Catalogue Essay

    The Omega Speedmaster ref. 145.022 was produced as such between 1968 and 1988, before the manufacturer diverted to the PIC reference system which modern collectors are now accustomed to. This late example bears the rare 1450 bracelet with 808 endlinks and is a sought-after piece in today's market. The watch is also powered by the iconic caliber 861, an evolution of the legendary cal. 321. In line with the desired traits of a Speedmaster from circa 1998, the present ref. 145.022 houses a dial with painted logo and ‘Professional’ third line of text.

    The dial and bezel are in well preserved in excellent overall condition with nice patina on the hour markers of the dial and hands. The stainless steel case is strong all round with lugs that remain thick and sharp. Accompanied by its original warranty and Extract from the Archives, it is confirmed that the present time piece was produced on 14th October 1988 and sent to Hawaii, where it was subsequently sold on 25th December 1988.

  • Artist Biography

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
