You are viewing a special watch. These watches will make a great family heirloom and will make a great watch to pass onto a son or grandson one day.

No offers are accepted. Priced to sell Fast.

The case back states 145.022 74 - which many amateurs incorrectly believe supports that the manufacturing date was 1974. The Serial Number 27715342 underpins the above and means the watch was manufactured in 1968 and confirms its pre-moon status. The likelihood is that Omega changed the back case through a service or / and (and more likely) reassembled the watch after the moon landing as having the words engraved "First Watch Worn On The Moon" was they deemed more commercially desirable for the buying public. This marketing ploy by Omega (after the moon landing) is fairly well documented and you can research this yourself.

The 1968 watch movement is the highly collector worthy B1 calibre 861 Steel Brake (not the B.2 & B3 plastic brake versions).

Original condition / parts. Nice condition. Not mint showroom condition but very good. Study the photos as this naturally makes up part of the description.

To give this watch a modern twist two additional aftermarket Nato's supplied along with a genuine 1980's style Omega bracelet that was added by the previous owner. The Box has obviously seen better days and in faily poor condition. However these are still worth a few hundred £/€/$ on their own and will naturally be enclosed with the purchase.

Watch can be viewed by appointment at our showroom at King Street, Norwich, England.

We do not recommend jumping into the water with any vintage watch. Although once upon a time classed as 60m waterproof this usually last 3-5 years then needs to be checked. This info is in the handbook and still applies to modern Omega 's although no one hardly ever reads that bit...basically keep away from high humidity rooms like shower rooms just to be sure.

The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:

1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in good condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
