OMEGA SPEEDMASTER 145.022-71 “NO NASA”
Fine and rare stainless steel manual-winding chronograph wristwatch with black dial, 3 registers.
The Omega Speedmaster was born in 1957. The launch of this timepiece was unprecedented. At that time, chronographs were not at all considered as fashion accessories or as jewelry, but as tools. At the beginning of the 1960’s, NASA was looking for the watch which would accompany the astronauts for the conquest of the moon, the only natural satellite of the earth. Many advanced tests are carried out on watches, but the Omega Speedmaster is the only one to answer positively to all the tests. In 1965, NASA officially declared the Speedmaster as part of the astronauts’ equipment for the Apollo missions.
The model presented here is the reference 145.022 from 1971. It is a round stainless steel case of 42 mm diameter with a screw-down case back, not engraved “the First Watch Worn On the Moon…. » . Black dial with luminescent painted stick indexes, three counters with minute totalizer at 3, hour totalizer at 6 and permanent second hand at 9. Manual-winding mechanical movement, caliber 861.
This truly timeless iconic timepiece goes through the decades with class and elegance.
