Condition Report

CASE

The case is in excellent overall condition, with hardly any signs of wear. The watch, in our view, has never been polished. The bracelet is in similar condition to the case. The caseback still retains the red-dot seal, and has never been opened.


DIAL

The dial is in excellent overall condition, with no signs of prior restoration.


MOVEMENT

The chronograph function is operating properly, and dustcap is still present. The movement is running at time of cataloguing, however it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.

Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

The Omega Speedmaster, while gaining the moniker of 'Moonwatch' for its role in the NASA space program, first featured an actual moon phase complication in 1985.


The reference 345.0809 was introduced that year and was in production until 1988 and made in less than 1,300 units. The reference contained a modified caliber 861, the cal. 866, which also added a date.
