The watch comes accompanied by a certificate of authenticity dated September 2020 and states: “The present watch is a Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch with the reference 145.022 fitted with what appears to be a very early production of the caliber 861 that bears the engraving “1” on the serial number bridge. At the time of expertise we observed the presence of original hands and an original black stepped dial in very good condition with tritium luminous markers. The case, including the bezel, crown and pushers, is original as is the caseback that features the engraved “HF” acronym of the designated manufacturer “Huguenin Freres”. An exact dating of the watch is not possible without the presence of a regular movement number, but the watch is in its condition at the time of expertise is authentic, dates to ca. early 1969 and is consistent with Omega service policies.”
