Vintage Omega Speedmaster
This highly desirable vintage Speedmaster dates back to 60’s. At that time the dial maker used to coat black dials with a chemical to prevent them from faded. During this time period, the chemical had the opposite effect on some watches. These few collectible pieces faded to a tropical beautiful brown color. This particular piece has faded to a very attractive chocolate brown shade that is immediately detectable in person. The faded original 220 bezel has a nice consistent color that adds to the vintage look. The watch comes on a factory bracelet produced by Holzer (which is pretty rare in the vintage world). The extracts confirmed this watch was delivered in Mexico in late 1969.
This reference is considered “pre-moon” because it is the version produced before the landing in July of 1969. For a true collector this is a once in a lifetime piece to add to the collection.
