The Speedmaster 145.022 was an extremely long-lived reference and is regarded as the turning point in the continuous development of the Speedmaster. It is the first Speedmaster model featuring the legendary caliber 861, a cam switch movement that was easier to produce in large numbers. The Speedmaster reference 145.022-69 was produced from 1969 to 1971 and can be categorised as "before the moon landing" and "after the moon landing". On occasion of the landing on the moon in July 1969, Omega launched some few Speedmaster models reference 145.022 with a new caseback design to commemorate the mission: the caseback bears a horizontal engraving of the words "The first watch worn on the Moon". To the collectors, these examples of the Speedmaster are known as "Straight Writing" Speedmasters.
Case: very good, worn
