1969 Speedmaster "Tropical" Dial 145.022-69
Some of the most beautiful watches are brown or "chocolate" dial Speedmasters. These dials resulted from a faulty UV coated in reaction to age and exposure to heat and light. This turns the watch to adopt a charming vintage dial that complements the aged hands and hour indices.
This watch forms the iconography of the Speedmaster Professional from 1969 until present day. The watch uses the Lyre lugs introduced with the 105.012 and a new Caliber 861 which features a shuttle cam instead of a column wheel, the modern version of which still resides in the modern Speedy Pro today.

Some of the most beautiful watches are brown, chocolate or brown dial Speedmasters. This patina happens when the dial is exposed to the sun's UV rays turning the colour pigments to react and change up into a vintage-like dial.
THE SPEEDY IDENTITY
Iconic in its nature and the history that surrounds it, the design of this truly iconic chronograph is one of Omega's most recognizable and thus desired by watch fans alike.
Powered by the caliber 861, it is a modern update of the original caliber 321 that went to the moon. Besides switching out the column wheel for a shuttle cam, several components were made from special alloys to better resist the extreme temperature variation in space.
