The only watch that I currently own from this lineup is the Replica Omega Speedmaster 145.022 “Transitional.” Writing this article was not difficult at all. To me, this Speedmaster is my GADA watch.
Since I joined this hobby, I had always wanted a vintage Speedmaster. This needs no explanation if you are reading this article. My criteria were that it had to be something from the late ’60s with charm and character but also the same wearability that modern pieces offer.
Omega Speedmaster 145.022 Transitional
The Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches Online traveled the world with me, and it never left me hanging, not even once. I bought it serviced with all the extra parts, receipts, and invoices. Its previous owner was a very meticulous man. Thanks to him, my baby was and still is extremely reliable (although, I must admit, it should be time for a service soon).
The initiative to blend modern construction with some iconic features of vintage Speedies shows that there’s a large number of people out there who love the old aesthetics of the Cheap Omega Replica. That is precisely what brought me to mine back in the day. A Speedy, even from the ’60s, looks modern.
As its name suggests, the Transitional has the physical features of an earlier 321-caliber Speedmaster but with the Omega Replica Watches 861 movement inside it. I won’t list all the differences between the 321 and the 861, but let it suffice to say the latter is a more robust caliber, a logical next step, and an improvement at the time.
There’s nothing wrong with the 321. If, however, I want to make sure that my watch can DA, I need a movement that is as sturdy and reliable as possible. To date, the 861 is the longest-serving caliber in the Speedmaster. It came to the market in 1968 and was in production until 1996 when the 1861 took over. Plenty of parts are available, and any trained watchmaker can service this movement.
As far as my decision-making goes, I wanted to pick one that I already own. And what watch in my collection has been with me the most often? Clearly, it’s the 145.022 Transitional. I own a few Omega Replica, so there was always a choice. I could go time-only and pick a vintage or modern piece.
