So, let’s say you’ve found a nice Speedmaster Professional 145.022 replica watches for sale, like I did a couple of weeks ago. I brought a loupe and a case back opener when I made the appointment to examine the Omega replica watches. Now I can imagine that not every seller is happy to have the case back opened, or that you own a little tool to open up case backs, but I thought it was necessary to have a look at the condition of the movement (no corrosion) and at the movement number (not to be confused by the caliber number).
The movement number is something I touched already in Part 1 of Omega Speedmaster Pro 145.022 replica watches Buyer’s Guide. In short, I could split them up in Pre-Moon and Post-Moon Speedmasters, referring to the Moon landing in July 1969. But to be honest that doesn’t cover the load, as many small changes were made during the production of the 145.022 reference.
For your information: this 145.022 ‘Moonwatch’ never was on the Moon actually, as AAA Omega replica watches only supplied 105.012 and 145.012 references to NASA after the certification took place. Only in 1978 Omega replica watches sent a batch of 56 Speedmaster Professional 145.022 replica watches after re-certification for the Space Shuttle program.
