Do Italians Do It Better?

In 1975 the Soviets and Americans put their political differences to one side and collaborated on a mission to dock the Apollo and Soyuz spacecraft. One year later the Italian Omega distributor De Marchi commissioned a limited run of Speedmasters to commemorate the event. We are offering “lucky number 100” out of the 500 pieces that were produced – a cool number and a super cool watch. The Soyuz watches were based on the legendary 145.022 but featured a modified case to allow for the large pushers, which give the watch an extra presence on the wrist. The mint condition dial features the ‘Apollo Souyuz’ patch logo dial and the caseback features a commemorative engraving.
So This is a complete different watch as the Standard Speedy of that time:different case, pushers, caseback and even the bracelet! The example on offer here is stunning, It’s not often we use the term unpolished, but in this case we have to! The calibre 861 movement has been fully serviced by our watchmaker. The watch is accompanied by an archive extract confirming that the watch was delivered to the Italian agent in 1976.
