Serial: 22829681
Circa: 1966
Reference No.: 105.003-65

CASE: 39mm, stainless steel, black ‘DO90’ tachymeter bezel, straight lugs

DIAL: Black dial with applied Omega logo, tritium hour markers & T SWISS MADE T printed at the bottom

MOVEMENT: Calibre 321, hand-wound column wheel chronograph, 17 jewels

BRACELET: Leather strap

CONDITION REPORT: Excellent overall condition. Case appears unpolished and retains its original bevels as well as circular finish on the back. The original DO90 bezel has faded to a dark grey and is intact with only a slight ding above 90. The crown and pushers are original as well. The dial is original with nicely aged tritium lume. The hands appear to have been refilled and color matched nicely.

The 105.003 reference is nicknamed 'Ed White' after the astronaut who famously wore this reference into space in 1965. The straight lug case was discontinued in 1967-68 at the end of the production of the 321 caliber and are not only rare, but highly collectible.
