Product Details

With the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing looming like the Death Star on the horizon, focus is now on space-related ephemera. Major auction houses will no doubt hold sales of anything that an astronaut might have even breathed on. Now, with demand for those items soaring high, it might put a damper on anyone’s aspirations to own a piece of history.

But there is a piece of space history that anyone can own: the Omega Speedmaster.

Since 1965, this little machine has been issued to the crew of every manned space mission. Ed White, Buzz Aldrin, Jim Lovell—these are just a few heroes who strapped the Speedy to their wrists as they headed to the final frontier. As one of Omega’s longest-running models, the Speedmaster has seen variants as numerous as stars in the sky, from special editions honoring spaceflights to the simpler black-dialed “Moon watch” that everyone knows and loves.

Demand for “pre-Moon” variants like those worn by Ed White and Buzz Aldrin have reached almost super-terrestrial heights. However, for the collector who wants a vintage Speedy with all the romance, but not the price tag, there’s the Reference 145.022. Produced from the late 1960s to the 1990s, the Reference 145.022 is the perfect entry point into the world of vintage Speedmasters.

This particular Speedy might date from the 1990s, but in spirit and aesthetics it has all the elements of a classic Moon watch, both inside and out. The movement that powers this watch is the same Calibre .861 that powered the watches worn by Jim Lovell and his crew during the harrowing Apollo 13 spaceflight. The case is the same asymmetrical one that marked the Speedy since the late 1960s, and the dial still has tritium luminescent material, giving it a patina that’s as mouth-watering as any Speedy from the 1960s or 1970s.

Moreover, the Speedy is still being worn by astronauts today, which makes it just as relevant to the history of space exploration as ever.

Attractive, wearable, and attainable, with a bonafide —all in all, it’s a value proposition that’s hard to argue with.
