About this watch
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.
#26.548.xxx has case reference 145.012-67. It is in very good condition, its parts are period consistent and its overall patina is particularly appealing, giving it a watch score of 8.0 (impacted by the lack of stainless steel bracelet).
The MEISTER jewelers, established in 1881, are based in Zurich, Switzerland. Until the 1970s they fitted all the watches they sold, not only Omega models, with dials bearing the inscription MEISTER made in their workshops.
An additional bonus of + 2.0 is given for this ultra-rare dial, confirmed by the extract of the archives from Omega indicating the first delivery in Switzerland to MEISTER.
