Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022-69 ‘Unpolished, Pre-Moon, DoN Bezel’

It was a beautiful day in April when an elegant lady walked into our store. Sadly, she told us that her husband had passed away. Among other things, he had left behind an old watch that he had worn for many years and she was looking to sell it to pay for a dream vacation with her son. Much to our surprise, the watch was a beautiful, unpolished ‘Pre-Moon’ Speedmaster from 1969. She had gotten a few disappointing offers and wasn’t expecting much better from us. Gladly, we were able to help her to make that dream trip come true! 

This watch too is on a journey to find a new and loving home. This beauty dates back to 1969 and is powered by the caliber 861. The watch has the iconic, asymmetrical case, which measures 42 mm. Furthermore, it has the twisted lugs that were designed by the one and only Gerald Genta. Between the twisted lugs are the 516-stamped end links with a 1039-stamped flat link bracelet dating back to the second quarter of 1970. So, slightly newer than the case. Usually, we don’t say this but with this watch we dare to say that it’s unpolished. This Speedmaster has a DoN – which stands for Dot over Ninety – bezel. In case you didn’t know, it refers to the dot being displayed above the 90 on the tachymetric scale of the bezel.

 

Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022-69 ‘Pre-Moon, Pulsation Scale’

The pulsation scale is a simple, yet very effective, tool to determine someone’s heart beat per minute. The pulsometer was designed for doctors in the pre-digital age. The mechanism is simple: start the chronograph function with the top pusher, count the beats until you reach the number for which the pulsation scale is calibrated (15 or 30) and directly stop the chronograph function with the bottom pusher and the bezel will indicate the frequency per minute. 

The pulsometer or pulsograph was introduced in the 1920s. For Omega it started in 1959 with the launch of the Omega Speedmaster CK 2998 Pulsometer. This reference was in production until 1962 and then, got replaced. The Pulsometer we can offer you goes under reference 145.022-69 and dates back to 1970. It’s not strange that you would say out loud: “Huh? 1969 is the year of the moonlanding. So, how can this watch be a ‘Pre-Moon’?” Well, young padawan (the only space travel word we know), these watches were made before the moonlanding took place. Furthermore, Omega still had casebacks without the engraving ‘first watch worn on the moon’, so yes, there are even ‘Pre-Moons’ from after 1969. This watch is powered by the caliber 861. The watch has the iconic, asymmetrical case with the twisted lugs that were designed by the one and only Gerald Genta. The pulsation scale has a copper-brown colour and in our honest opinion, this is the coolest Speedmaster we have for offer right now.
