Wow! Never heard of that one. Any photos?
Interesting. Just had a look into The Master of Omega by Alberto Isnardi (a wonderful book btw) and its not even mentioned. Tx - you selling ?
The st 145.0022 for the Italian market is mentioned though. same year 1987.
Nope, stole the pics off the interwebs!
Probably got glossed over because the grail was the worthless cousin of the moonwatch until Chuck got involved, it was just another German market Speedmaster that nobody cared about, prices were really low, then he started chasing them and the rest is history. Its sort of like the manual wind Daytonas, there are stories of deep discounts on them well under $1000 even in the 1980s, it wasn't until the last decade or two that people started caring about them at all.
Yep. Strange this whole concept of "value" of vintage watches. I had a manual wind Daytona which I also inherited (!). Personally, it doesn't do much for me and I sold it at a ridiculous price that some collectors thought was the minimum it might be worth. However, if it goes out of fashion in a few years, it may well be worth only a fraction of what it's. Is "worth."
As I'm a cheapskate I might just go for a Mk 4.5 instead then
After work switch for a couple hours around the house:
First time out for the jumbo Seamaster bumper.
Glad you're wearing it! Looks perfect on your wrist.
Thanks Kyle. Fits pretty well too so it might steal some wrist time from the Chrono Cockpit on days off.
Starting with the sparkle - used to be my Monday watch, now is my Tuesday watch (until a real watchmaker fixes it).
Then we're hitting the beach so the Seiko gets the call.
