    So...I just bought a Omega Speedmaster with a Star logo on the case back to the left of where it says stainless steel. It also has a P/N SED12100312-301 Engraved at the bottom of the case back and under it has a S/N number. What do I have?

    So it's either a NASA owned Speedy or a mod or a fake but without photos....

    Sit tight my friend, the experts are on the way but if it is indeed a NASA watch as the article alludes to you have a winner.

    Well let's hope for a score, and if not at least let's hope the OP got a genuine example with monkeyed case back for small money. :thumbsup:

    The Article from RJ says there were 4 prototypes for Omega and 56 for NASA. None were ever supposed to be out in the wild.

    Very intriguing.

    Can you share more about how you found this?

    Think of us as your own private antique roadshow. :)

    I bought it from a guy whose grand father was a engineer. The grandfather passed and left it to him and wanted to sell it so I bought it.

    Was the price reasonable? We know now it's a genuine Speedmaster, caseback aside. :thumbsup:

    What do you think would be reasonable?
