Omega Speedmaster ref. 145.022-69 "220"
The Reference 145.022 marks a significant point of evolution for the Speedmaster with the introduction of the Caliber 861, the cam-switched chronograph movement that progressively replaced the revered column wheel Calibre 321. While there are variants within the 145.022, what you’re looking is the Pre-Moon 145.022-69 “220”. Its particular identifying features being the stepped dial with the painted white “Ω” logo, the DNN bezel without the accented È in the word TACHYMETRE and the number 220 appear on the scale instead of the typical 200, and lastly, the Pre-Moon type caseback. The Pre-Moon 145.022-69 “220” sits right between the preceding transitional reference 145.022-68 and the succeeding reference Post-Moon 145.022-69. The watch was in production for a relatively brief period from 1969 to 1971.
