    Hey all...don't flame me. My friend has this watch (145022-69) and wants to get a rough read on value and I am trying to help him but don't know much about this reference. The dial, hands and case are fine (the crystal not so much). The movement (c.861) and bracelet seem decent. Thanks for any guidance.

    Dibs!

    A few more pics would be great. I think I can see the T Swiss there. Looks pretty nice. Chrono second hand replaced maybe?

    Tell your friend to call me!

    I am sure 1969 didn't come with that configuration, but I do like mod with the racing dial. I am cheap so I will pay no more than $1.5K???

    hmmmmm.......I guess Omega did some Speedmasters with racing dial back in the early 1970's. Learn something new everyday!!!

    So what? He asked about the reference, not the racing dial.

    Well, I'm pretty sure he's not asking about the plain Jane 145.022-69.

    There's like a $20K+ difference in value between the two.

    All-Thanks for the replies. I asked for no flames because despite owning a lot of vintage stuff I had zero info re this one. I did a Google search and found nothing. So this was serious. And now I have the big moral dilemma. Will let you all know what happens.

    Best.

    I noticed the three subdial hands are all slightly different colours, not sure if this is correct or not, it might even be the lighting in the pic
