Sized at 40mm, the pre-professional Speedmasters such as this ‘Ed White’ are most easily differentiated by the straight lug cases used and absence of crown guards, compared to the later, twisted bombe lugs. The case is in good condition, and still has its original bevels visible. The case back retains the Omega hippocampus, is engraved on the inside ‘105.003-65’, and comes with its original dustcover. This watch comes with its original Dot Over 90 tachymeter bezel, which has faded to a very nice grey colour.
This ‘Ed White’ Speedmaster has its original tritium ‘stepped’ dial in excellent condition and features a raised Omega logo. The patina on the hour markers have aged evenly to a dark yellow tone, which matches the hands perfectly.
Powered by the famous calibre 321, it is a column wheel chronograph movement that is heralded to be one of the greatest ever produced. All pre-professional Speedmasters utilised this high-end calibre, before Omega eventually switched to the more economical, non-column wheel Cal. 861.
Colloquially referred to as the "Ed White" Speedmaster, the watch was worn by NASA Astronaut Edward White, when he became the first man to walk in space.
The watch comes with a suede leather strap and Omega steel tang buckle.
