The Speedmaster 145.022 is the real deal. This exact reference was used by astronaut Ron Evans on the Apollo 17 mission. While every tool watch has a special provenance no other compares to this one. The Omega 145.022 set the pace for the Speedmaster's to come. The 145.022 was the first to incorporate the Caliber 861 replacing the slower beating Caliber 321. It was also the first to have the Omega logo printed in white as opposed to having the logo stamped.
