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 105.003 is one of the most, if not the most significant Speedmaster. Indeed, it was the only survivor of the extreme NASA tests in 1964/65 to select the watch that would be flight-qualified for all manned space missions. The reference ST 105.003 accompanied astronauts during all the Gemini missions.
#25.449.xxx is a reference ST 105.003, but its caseback is engraved 2998-62 and 145.003 SP.
The latest 105.003s, with movement serial in 25.4 and 26 millions were internally referenced 145.003 by Omega and this reference is also found in some catalogs of that time, but has never been an official Omega reference. A previous Omega extract from the archives for this watch, dated from the 2000s, indeed indicated that it was a 145.003. The double engraving in the caseback, probably means that this is an old part, used later by Omega. This watch is in overall good and consistent condition, with signs of wear, and seems unrestored.
The Watch Score for the watch conformity and condition is 7.3, impacted by the absence of a steel bracelet.
An Extra Score of + 0.5 is given for its overall consistency.
Our WATCHFID Rating is 7.8.
