Notes:  For you consideration is an excellent example of the rare transitional Speedmaster reference 145.022. Only made for a very short period of time (slightly over a year or less) when Omega was transitioning between references, movements and dials (145.012-145-022). This is what I like to call the best of both worlds as you get the exact look of the prior Speedmaster with the applied logo, long luminous indices, wide "T swiss made T" marking and the dot over 90 bezel without the headache of dealing with the .321 movement that is difficult to service and maintain compared to the reliable .861 movement.  This is a great example of a rare desirable Speedmaster reference.
