Take a poll amongst wristwatch collectors, and we'd bet the consensus would be that there might be nothing more important or iconic in a watch collection than an Omega Speedmaster.
Sure, chronographs such as the Rolex Daytona or the Heuer Carrera are classics - icons even, but neither can match the stature of the Speedy with regards to importance in history. In fact,arguably no watch can.
This 'Ed White' is more than just special. It was purchased in 1965 on a navy/army/air force base in Europe. This reference 105.003 is powered by the calibre .321, considered to be one of the best movements ever designed. A correct DO90 bezel shows heavy wear, a sign that the piece was thoroughly enjoyed by the previous owners. At 38.5mm, the straight lug HF case wears extremely well for a chronograph. Richly patinated tritium markers appear golden.
This 'Ed White' includes box, extract from the archives, original sales receipt and an Omega hangtag.
