    Hi

    I just wanted to check the reference of this MKII Speedmaster for sale here on the forum:

    https://omegaforums.net/threads/ome...al-first-owners-with-original-warranty.27850/

    I thought the 145.034 was the GP version & the 145.014 the regular standard or racing dial ? I initially thought the Caseback may have been swapped over , however aren't the inner markings different too ?

    Also worth noting that the serial number in the paperwork doesn't match the Cal 861 fitted to the Watch....but that's another topic / pm for Nicolas.

    Best - Neil

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply and link....anyone able to substantiate the comment ? It doesn't make a lot of sense to have the 145.014 & 145.034 being exactly the same....perhaps the Production run date is slightly later ?

    We are talking vintage Omega after all....which reminds me of the 105.003 & 145.003....however (& in general) you don't see the cases stamped with that particular reference.

    I can only find this in the Omega database:

    Archer is a watchmaker with a Omega account and have acces to their database so I guess when he enter 145.034 there is parts for the SS, gold plate, and solid gold version for this reference.

    The 145034 (1450034) came in BA, MD, and ST versions...confirmed on the Omega Extranet...

    The 145014 (1450014) came in BA and ST versions...again confirmed on the Omega Extranet...

    As we all know the vintage database is notoriously incomplete.

    These cases are not identical - they use different crowns, different crystals, and different inner bezels for example.

    Cheers, Al

    Archer (or others), do you know if this 20 micron GP case can be polished/made up to it's original vertical brushed lines? Where & how much?

    Thanks

    yes it should be possible but that will be not a cheap thing. The case is made from brass and prior the case rework the gold must be galvanically removed. Someone who is able to rework a stell MKII case, should be also able to rework one made from brass I think. The look of a perfect 145.034 is awesome....I like also the Yachting gold plated version.

    thanks :) ......the MKII I have sold some years ago, the Yachting is still in the collection and has ref. 176.010, same as the steel version.
