Omega Speedmaster Ultra Rare Caseback Apollo XI

Apollo-XI-Groot

This is one of the rarest Speedies… it has a special case back made only for a very short time after the moon landing. It is not the (also rare and pictured behind for reference) First Worn on the Moon case back but the last of this series had another with Apollo XI 1969 engraved. Ref is 145.022-69ST and this one was delivered to Switzerland in 1970 (Omega Extract included). It’s actually the first time I’ve had one. Another nice extra is that the dial has become a very nice dark-chocolate color which adds to the value. Movement is Cal. 861 and working perfectly. Overall condition is superb, attached is a high quality brown strap in the same color as the dial and it has an Omega buckle. Extremely rare opportunity.

Sold.
