OMEGA Speedmaster
145.012-68

Sold

The Omega Speedmaster, born in 1957, is one of the most iconic wristwatches ever produced. Since 1965, it has been the choice of space programs for over half a century and has been associated with some of mankind’s greatest space adventures, earning it the name The Moonwatch. 

Naturally, beyond its professional use for more than sixty years, the Speedmaster, with its incredible history and its timeless design, has appealed to a much wider public throughout the world.

The reference ST 145.012 is of major historical importance as it one the few Speedmaster references worn by astronauts on the Moon, notably by Alan Shepard on Apollo 14. In addition, it accompanied the astronauts during the legendary Apollo-Soyuz mission. It also flew 25 revolutions around the Moon with Michael Collins aboard the Apollo 11 command module.

The present watch is part of the last batch of 5’000 ST 145.012s, with a total production of approximately 27’000. It was delivered to Mexico and, as we often see, was fitted with a special Omega “Mexican bracelet”.

#26.553.xxx has case reference 145.012-68, which is rare, most having the year -67. It is in very good condition, its parts are period consistent and its overall patina is particularly appealing, giving it a Watch Score of 8,9. Finally, an additional Extra Score of + 1 is given for its box, its Mexican bracelet and the global consistency between the parts.

Our WATCHFID Rating is 9,9.
