  • Catalogue Essay

    Incredibly rare, the Omega Speedmaster “Ultraman” ref. 145.012-67SP featured the infamous cal. 321 and furthermore is set apart by its predecessors with “SP” meaning “special pushers” for enhanced waterproof capabilities. With an estimated 50 examples fitted with the correct configuration and fitted with an orange chronographic hand, the reference is without a doubt rare. The reference also featured movement numbers ranging only from 26’076’XXX to 26’079’XXX.

    The present example is presented in attractive condition with a nice and clean dial featuring an orange chronographic hand and furthermore the serial number coincides with the range mentioned above. Adding to the attraction it is confirmed by an Omega Extract from the Archives indicating the orange chronographic hand with a production date of 10th June 1968 which is the correct period for the specific watch and it was delivered to Switzerland.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
