    Speedmaster 145.022-69 with DO90 bezel.

    The dial is a correct, stepped dial painted logo. The dial plots glow for 15s and then fade when lit by a fairly weak UV source. (My single AAA battery UV torch).

    The plots themselves are thin, light yellow but slightly dirty.

    The hands match the dial. The hands themselves show minor wear as we would expect from numerous services over the years.

    The bezel has a few marks but is the correct DO90

    The watch has some minor corrosion between the lugs and best shown by these photos.

    Between the lugs is worst

    Hippocampus is good, and no failed opening marks

    The back is good:

    The inner back shows four watchmakers marks:

    The dust cover is correct vintage:

    The movement is serviced by Simon Freeese. I will personally guarantee movement in that if you have any problems in next 12 months you must return to Simon Freeese in UK (I may be able to help) and I will fix it at no expense to you, just shipping.

    The crystal is a service replacement:

    For me, I feel this is a less expensive 145.022-69 with DO90 bezel all correct and with a very attractive dial, which has a very slight brown tint.

    I have owned this watch since 2012.

    Watch is currently in USA and can be shipped Parcel Pro world wide. USA shipping is $70 insured.
    Payment to my HSBC account in US dollars by wire. (Cant tell you the fun and games I have had with transfer services, so please just a wire!)

    Why am I selling?

    I am reducing my watch collection to a manageable size. This watch does not fit in my collection

    Price $5,400
    Payment in USD to my HSBC account in Hong Kong.

    Delivery.
    Watch is in USA and can be shipped Parcel Pro, World Wide for a little more. I can send from UK after 15th October

    Notes on my position and ethos
    I am not motivated by profit and so I have no reason to embellish or over describe. I sell my watches to make room for more that I have bought. I have been on eBay since 2002 with 100% feedback. I have bought and sold a few watches on www.OmegaForums.net and you can find my feedback by searching my username. I am the author of Speedmaster101.com and protecting my reputation is more important to me than selling off a watch. I am not a watch dealer, I make my money elsewhere, watches are my pleasure.

    Both Documents will be shipped separate from watch when I get to them in UK.
