Omega Speedmaster Ref. 145.022
Oh this watch represents such a sweet spot in the vintage market…
We assume you have heard about the whole moon landing/Speedmaster connection by now. If not, drop by, we will happily bring you up to speed (pun intended).
While the Speedmaster Professional provides some darn good value across the board, the 1980s variants are a particularly attractive proposition. Why? Because they still used Tritium lume, rather than the later Superluminova. And that matters because it discolors over time, resulting in a beautiful yellowish tone as you see on this Speedy. Furthermore, these came on the older generation bracelets, which wrap around the wrist much more smoothly than the current-gen with its wide end links. These two traits make this a Speedy with a real vintage vibe to it.
And best of all, these have not shot up in value as much as some older Speedmasters have. So what we have here is one of the most historically important and influential watches, a chronograph no less, that is still relatively accessible. Without wanting to sound blasé, it is extremely good value within the current vintage watch market.
