1970 Omega Speedmaster 'Grey Racing' Ref.145.022-69
This is one of the most beautiful looking and most collectible vinatge Speedmasters in the market at the moment. Though to exist in maybe as few as 150 examples, the grey racing dial was the second iteration of the late 1960s racing dials. Featuring sunning orange and burgundy accents, this dial is in really beautiful condition. The dial accents are enhanced by the presence of orange sub dial hands and an orange stop watch hands. Importantly, this watch is accompanied by an archive extract confirming that it was delivered with this dial when new.
This watch is in mint condition and this extends to the wooden presentation box (no scratches) as well as outer cardboard box, papers and operating manual which all appear clean and new. There are no visible scratches on case, bracelet and crystal; dial and hands are perfect with crisp, bright markings; and the bezel is in perfect condition, with clear markings on black, with no visible sign of wear or age.

The DON or 'Dot Over Ninety' bezel referenees to the dot with the 90 marking on the tachymeter bezel being above the number. This is period correct for this watch.
In 2004 Omega relaunched this iconic watch as the Japan Racing dial. The watch took its styling cues from the original and made the watch in a limited run if 2004 pieces.
It is powered by the legendary caliber 321, the Lemania movement that was the base of the 2130. The column wheel activated chronograph movement is one of the most reliable and beautiful movement to ever be conceived.
