Omega Speedmaster Ref. 105.003 -64 Ed White
No watch is as unchanged in design as the Omega Speedmaster Professional. First introduced in 1957 and in some case, pointer adjustments, etc., the watch is almost unchanged to this day. In 1965 after a series of careful testing, NASA proclaimed the Speedmaster the astronauts’ watch. Omega used this fact to add the word “Professional”. From that time on, all astronauts wore a Speedmaster Professional during their missions.
Now back to the story of our Speedmaster from the earlier generation than the Speedmaster Professional. As you can see from the photos, there is no ‘Professional’ on the dial yet. This is also the case without “crown guards” and with the famous 321 calibers. The dial is fitted with beautiful yellowed tritium, the whole makes for a grandiose patina.
So this is a really special addition to our collection. Vintage at its best and an asset to every purist! Words do not always describe the feeling as it is experienced. Feel free to come in to view this Moonwatch. We are happy to tell you more about it.
