    Hi everybody, this is my first post and really I appreciate any comments/suggestions
    I owned this Speedmaster for for about 15, wearing it occasionally, alternating with other chronograph, I think it is time to know what I really have here and I did some research (mostly on Speedmaster 101).
    I was finally able to open the case and look inside:
    the case back of this moon watch said ST 1450022 (service?), the Omega movement is N.26546900 the caliber is 321 and I think has a little crack near the crown stem, the dial has applied metal logo and T-Swiss-Made-T, the bezel.... well that I don't know, I didn't get that far to recognize the difference...
    The bracelet marks: 32 - II71/I ends 633
    One of my question is: the 321 is the correct caliber for the 1450022? Is this watch correct or is a mix-match?
    thank you all or the opportunity!

    Must have the wrong caseback. Probably a 145.012-67.

    Wrong caseback, incorrect hands, and a replaced bezel, from what I'm seeing.

    No, not correct, seems a lot of parts have been changed.
    Case back is a replacement, hour and minute hands should be white, and the bezel would have been a DON when the watch left the factory. Bracelet is also newer.

    Edit: Beeten to it buy rcs914 :mad:;)

    Quite a nice dial though . It wouldn't be impossible to make it right . Bezel would be the most expensive piece to fix up.

    Thank you for the Speedy Answer! I understand that you can see the difference of the bezel from the position of the dots,correct?
    Also no Moon on the case back? Screen Shot 2018-03-30 at 5.48.11 PM.jpg

    Correct. The one you want is the one with the dot over 90, not next to the 90.

    Caseback 145.0022 is a modern service caseback.

    That is also a modern service item, though slightly better than the 145.0022.

    I'd wait for a proper vintage one myself. They come up fairly regularly.
