    Hey OF! Next up in my purge is a great condition, great looking Speedmaster 145.022-71 with a stunning step dial.

    Case: Stainless asymmetric. Lugs are sharp. I'd say it was polished in the past prior to my ownership, but I don't know exactly how long before. Caseback has sharp text and does not appear to have been polished to my eye.

    Dial: Perfect stepped dial with short indices and painted logo. The lume is all in tact and has aged to a beautiful hue.

    Hands: I believe all to be original, but the sweep may have been replaced at some point, however, that is just a guess. They all match the lume on the dial nicely.

    Bezel: Correct DNN with a cpl nicks here and there. See pix.

    Crown: Wide Omega logo, see pic.

    Pushers: Correct and I believe to be original.

    Crystal: Correct Omega Crystal with logo.

    Movement: A proper 861 with serial 32,201, xxx. Movement was checked out by my watchmaker during my ownership and said to be in proper working order. Watch is keeping excellent time and all chrono functions reset properly.

    Bracelet: This watch is being offered on a Forstner Komfit with very hard to find 20mm tubes. I can also include a 20mm black leather NATO style strap if purchaser wants it. (I will consider head only.)

    Terms: I am asking $5,500 USD + shipping with payment via PayPal (F&F or add 3%) or bank wire. I do not offer returns except if something is not as advertised. I have multiple references available on here on request. As always, the pictures make up a large part of the description and you should examine them closely. So with that segue, here they are! (Note: Any spots on dial are a reflection from the crystal.)
