    Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022-68 - pre moon-landing

    Hello,

    I am so much a newby as to be unable to post links or photos, so please bear with me!

    I came across an Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022 with the 861 movement in it. I had the jeweller who was selling it remove the caseback and I examined the serial number which, when I checked in the Moonwatch Only book did seem to line up with the model being sold (I don't have the number on hand, but it was a later one). It's a transitional model and does not have any reference to the moon landing. So, I did buy the watch, but being pretty new at this I did not realise until I got it home that the pushers come from a Flightmaster, not a Speedmaster.

    The dial, hands, case and movement all look like the real deal. Quite handsomely worn and patina'd. The bezel is faded to a "ghost" colour. The inside of the case back does have a reference to -68 in it. It all looks original to me. Only the pushers appear to be wrong. How concerned should I be? I don't imagine selling it on to anyone, I got a decent deal on it and I think it looks super cool.

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Not much we can say without photos but if you think parts have been switched out, then you need to ask yourself "what else is wrong?" Finding a 145.022 in decent original condition isn't common - most are cobbled together from many different watches.
