1971 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Straight-Writing

Product no.: OM201222


This is a very rare example of the Omega 145.022-69 "Straight Writing" Speedmaster. These Speedies with the rare case back engraving were the first reaction of Omega to the moon landing. They were only produced in the 31-32 mio serial range for a very short time.

This example here has a peculiar Vietnam War history, having been delivered to Guam in 1971. It's in beautiful and honest original condition and comes with a later 1171/1 bracelet and with original box and the extract of the archives.
