This particular Omega Speedmaster Racing 145.022-68 was delivered to the USA in 1969. Although there is no paper trace of this, it was later on bought on a US military base in Korea. A very similar Speedmaster Racing was auctioned at the Christie’s Speedmaster 50 Auction and fetched $32.500 USD.
When Omega replica watches introduced the Speedmaster in 1957, with their CK2915 reference, it was meant to be a watch for sports people. In a couple of advertisements, Omega pictured the Speedmaster CK2915 on the wrist of a car driver for example. Little did they know then about the Speedmaster becoming the official watch for NASA astronauts almost a decade later.
In the late 1960’s, Omega introduced the Speedmaster Mark II Racing. That’s the one we all know and it was in the regular collection of Omega in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. A bit more vague is the production of these Omega Speedmaster Racing 145.022-68 and similar models from those days. We know that there are roughly three different versions of the vintage Speedmaster with a racing dial:
Black dial, red/white hour markers, metal applied Ω logo (105.003, 145.012)
Black dial, orange/white hour markers, white Ω logo (145.012-67, 145.012-68)
Grey dial, orange/white (separated) hour markers, orange Ω logo (145.022)
