The Omega Speedmaster Professional is by far one of our most favorite chronographs. The Speedmaster has an incredible history starting with automotive racing moving into flight and eventually to NASA and the U.S. Space Program. There are many subtle differences within the vintage Omega Speedmaster range of references that make them all slightly unique and different.

The step dial or "Pie Pan" Omega Speedmaster's possess a charm and feel that that the new modern equivalents don't seem to quite have. The Ref 145.022 with the workhorse Cal. 861 movement is clearly built to last. The Speedmaster looks great on the bracelet as well as a hand crafted leather strap. It is one of our favorite chronographs due to its timeless design and functionality. Its versatility to be paired with the most formal and the most casual of wardrobe also makes the Speedmaster a good choice for the first vintage timepiece and or a classic daily driver. This specific 1974 Omega Speedmaster is a truly exceptional example that has been loved and well taken care of ready for many years to come!

The excellent thick case that has very minimal wear from use. This case has never been polished and retains the crisp sharp lines.

Excellent matte "Pie Pan" dial and the sloped subdials make this really stand out when on the wrist. The original tritium lume has taken on a wonderful warm golden patina. The hands are original to this timepiece and have aged a few shades darker the lume plots.
