Consigned by the original owner, this rare Speedmaster reference 105.002 is in all original, honest condition. The 105.002 was produced for only about six months in 1962 and is considered a transitional model. It is almost identical to a late 2998, but as one can see, does not have the alpha hands. Some models of the reference did, but others did not, such as the present example. This is the last Speedmaster model that has a rehaut, or steel inner ring between the dial and crystal, which gives it an added depth on the wrist. At the bottom of the dial, Swiss Made is not bookended by Ts as later models are. The applied OMEGA emblem, dot-over-ninety bezel, and straight lug case are other standout characteristics of this early Speedy. Additionally, the original 7912 bracelet and number 6 end links are still with the watch.

This is a great opportunity to acquire one of the rarest Speedmaster models in it's original form.
