About

The Speedmaster's history goes back to 1957 when it was introduced as a sports and racing chronograph, complementing Omega's position as the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games.

The "Speedmaster" name was chosen for its tachymeter scale bezel and following the Omega convention used for other models like the Seamaster - initially the Speedmaster was part of the Seamaster line - and the Railmaster.

While the Speedmaster models with calibre 321 are getting more scarce, many of you are after the Speedmaster Professional 145.022. This is the reference that was introduced in 1968 and did not only have a printed logo on the dial and a new seconds hand, it also came with a new movement. The calibre 861 movement was also Lemania based, but instead of a column-wheel mechanism, it uses a cam / shuttle system for the chronograph operation. This new movement (different balance wheel, higher frequency, new construction etc.) was the basis for the movement that we still find in today’s Omega Speedmaster Professional ‘Moonwatch’ models, the calibre 1861.

This piece is in good condition with some wear to the bezel as clearly shown. The yellow hour markers are a deep and vibrant colour relative to other similar models on the market. Enquire for more details.
