Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66CBIt's Speedy Tuesday! A readers, Rob, mailed us with some very good news. He purchased a beautiful Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66CB with the first owner.Rob explains: ". the watch was purchased with the previous owner as he what food was in the medical corps of the Navy (amid the Vietnam War, although I have no idea if he actually wore it overseas or saw action). He wore it for the little while, but eventually shifted to something more important and simply left it inside a drawer for several years. Thankfully, an original papers were kept together with the watch and because of the light use in the ensuing decades, the way it is and dial are quite maybe the cleanest I've ever seen because of this reference."It is uncertain where this beautiful Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66CB was bought originally, however the watch was bought in 1968. The Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66CB was developed from 1966 till 1968 and the serial number (or movement number, as Omega officially calls it) describes somewhere 1967. Unlike many Speedmaster enthusiasts think breitling colt , the entire year from the reference number doesn't automatically reference the fabrication year on the watch. An individual always has to discover the serial number to make sure. Omega keeps track of two dates actually, the serial number that is the production date plus the date that it was transported to one of their agents. Then, certainly, you will find the date when the watch was sold. There may be a considerable amount of time between those dates, for a number of reasons.Another interesting aspect concerning this Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66CB would be the 'CB' part. CB represents Le Centrale Boites and was on the list of (two) case makers used by Omega for the Speedmaster. The other case maker was Huguenin Freres. There are many variations in cases created by both of these manufacturers, and that is 'unthinkable' these days, because specifications that are offered by business must be leading constantly. However, it turned out in a very different era and possibly CB had reasons why you should do things differently from HF. The CB cases are getting to be much harder to find in an unpolished condition even so the best part about it is it is rather an easy task to spot. The lugs are a tad bit more flat around the upper side, and have this very thin facet alongside it (with this report). This thin facet is well gone when being polished and a simple approach to detect sloppy polish-work.Rob bought this Speedmaster Pro 105.012-66CB using the original warranty papers, which where then filled-in manually , (name with the buyer, serial number, reference number and date with the sale). It is interesting to view the original owner had his name and title engraved in the event that back. I know such as this style of 'personal history' on the watch. hublot watches It should not influence value of the watch so far as We are concerned in negative nor positive way. The healthiness of the watch is much more important.Our reader got into mechanical replica watches just 1.5 years ago, and from the beginning, he knew that this Omega Speedmaster was something special. As they described it in their e-mail to us, "it was apparent that a Speedmaster was universally suitable for anyone's collection, despite one's wealth / penchant for expensive pieces. A history, in my respectful opinion, is unmatched by any other sport watch and the design is in all likelihood essentially the most unchanged of any watch that's been being made on the similar interval. In short - it's historically significant, timelessly designed, rugged, capable to be had at a relatively low price (especially 145.022's along with other 861 calibers)."Like several (starting) Speedmaster collectors, Rob was after the 145.022 from the very early period, preferably the transitional model which includes the applied Omega logo though the caliber 861 movement. An incredibly cool looking watch using the aesthetics of the 145.012 and 105.012 but most the expense of those. watches However, his first buy was a Speedmaster reference 105.003-65 he found in Denmark. At most half a year later, Rob added this beautiful Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66CB to the collection likewise. Quite an amazing start for somebody relatively new into replica watches (and Speedmasters).When asked how to range from here, he answers: "In few months, I went from no Speedies to both an upright lug plus a CB professional, so I not really know where you can make hobby from this point. 2915's are impossible to find and I'd apt to be too afraid to ever don it, i really think the dream Speedy will be a 2998 with lollipop chrono hand. Obviously, I do not look forward to finding it in the near future, however also didn't look forward to finding one other two, so who knows!"A big Thanks a lot to Rob for playing along and sharing his story and photos.
