Footnotes

  • The 105.003-64 was the last of the straight lug Speedmasters. The next case generation had the in-turned lugs and the asymmetrical case to protect the pushers and the crown. It was also the last version before Omega started to add the word Professional on the dial. This variation is also significant as it is the model that went through the NASA selection process before the Speedmasters were adopted as the space mission watch. As such it is nicknamed the Ed White after he famously wore it on the first ever 'Space Walk' making it truly the first watch in space.
