Omega Speedmaster Professional 1969 145.022-69 42mm Cal 861 Tropical ChocolateOMEGA
For auction is a 1969 Omega Speedmaster Professional ref. 145.022-69 ST true chocolate dial dot over 90 bezel caliber 861 on 1039 bracelet with 516 end links. A gorgeous age to the dial that is somewhere between a milk chocolate and 60% dark chocolate (to use an actual analogy to cocoa content): the subdials are a touch lighter than the main dial but both are clearly an aged brown color. The case and bracelet are overall nice with original wear shown to the dot over 90 bezel, caseback Seahorse logo is strong. This has to be one of the very best chocolate dial Speedmaster currently in the market. The pictures under lights don't really do the dial justice; included in the carousel are a few phone pictures to show what the dial looks like in plain daylight.
