Item Overview

Description

Item Description
The 1965 Omega Speedmaster Chronograph Watch, known as the pre-Moonwatch, is a highly coveted timepiece among collectors and enthusiasts. This particular model features the rare reference number 145.012-68 and is powered by the esteemed manual-wind 321 caliber movement. The movement serial number for this piece is 22082498.

The watch showcases subsidiary dials for 12-hour and 30-minute registers, along with a constant seconds dial. It also boasts the original black bezel with a tachometer scale calibrated to 500 units, and comes with the correct Omega 1035 Bracelet.

The 1965 Omega Speedmaster's claim to fame lies in its selection by NASA for use by astronauts, a choice that has cemented its status as one of the most famous watches ever made. Beginning in 1962, NASA conducted rigorous testing on chronograph watches from various brands, including Breitling, Longines, Rolex, and Omega, to determine their suitability for space missions. Only three watches passed the initial round of "Qualification Test Procedures," but it was Omega’s Speedmaster chronograph that ultimately passed the final testing and accompanied astronauts into space. Following this significant achievement, Omega began to add the word "Professional" to the dials of their Speedmaster models and introduced a new reference number.
