I have just released on Youtube a video discussing this watch:

This is a 145.022-76 that came to me from a collector recently.


This watch is in near original specification. When it arrived, it had a DO90 bezel that I replaced with one from my stock.

The hands are service, Superluminova items. I will be looking for a solution to this. The choices are to replace with vintage ones from parts, or to take these hands and replace the lume with tritium.

When I put the serial into www.ilovemyspeedmaster.com I get an estimate of manufacture date of November 1976.
