Most of the re-editions from the racing-dial Speedmaster Reference 145.022 from the late 1960s are unfortunately not re-editions at all. Unlike the Japanese limited edition we've found for you here, they are often Frankenwatches, with dials and handsets borrowed from the later Mark II. If you love the look but not the worry, you're going to love this one, which is not only completely original and correct, but also comes with box and archives. This one is also essentially untouched, with case edges and lugs just as crisp, sharp, and attractive as they were when the watch left the factory. In some ways, you might almost say that the "racing dial" is closer in spirit to the original intention of the Speedmaster than the Moonwatch, as the Speedmaster was originally designed not for aerospace use, but as a competitive driver's watch. In our view, arguably the coolest Speedmaster made in the last twenty years, and in irreproachable original condition to boot.
