The Omega reference 145022-69 ST is the last pre-moon model as it was designed before the first moon landing in July 1969 but only launched in December 1969 and in production until around 1971. The first models were produced with the seahorse logo and brand name on the back while subsequent versions made reference to the moon landing. Successor to the references 105.003 and 105.012, this reference was the first to feature the new painted logo and shorter hour markers. The main noticeable and most appealing feature of the present Speedmaster is the harmonious and balanced dark chocolate “Tropical” dial giving the watch a very fresh and vintage appearance. In overall good condition, the present example is a perfect watch for the collector wishing to take his or her first steps into the exciting world of vintage Speedmaster collecting.
