Hi all,

Up for sale is the last iteration of the Omega Speedmaster with the legendary Cal. 321 movement, the Ref. 145.012. It's getting harder to find these at accessible prices, and this one is very affordable compared to what's out there. Here's the description, warts and all.

The good news - the movement itself has been recently serviced, the watch keeps good time, and all chronograph functions operate as they should and reset to zero. The dial appears to be original, as it has the correct applied Omega logo,"Professional" text, and "T SWISS MADE T" at the bottom. The patina on the indices is an even shade of yellowish/dark white, which matches the hands. Case back is correct, and signed 145.012 67 on the inside, as it should. The case itself shows some signs of polishing but angles are still sharp. The watch comes on a vintage Forstner Komfit band, which itself sells for about $500 these days.

The not so good news - the bezel is obviously absent, and at least the second hand does not appear to be original. The crown also appears to be a replacement (although it is an Omega crown, apparently a Seamaster crown; not a difficult thing to fix), and the stem is loose. The crown operates as it should (winding and setting is just fine), but pull it with a little force it will come out (but can be placed back in with no problem). The crystal also appears to be an aftermarket replacement, although that's not a difficult fix. The case has some minor scratches (visible in the below photos) - nothing major. No box or papers for this one.

All in all, it's a pleasure to wear and has great character. Add some TLC and I expect you could sell this for a healthy profit; it's just not a project that I have the time to undertake at the moment.

Asking $5000 OBRO (thousands below what else is out there), paypal'd and shipped CONUS. No trades please. Happy to answer any questions if you have them. Thanks for looking!
