1963 Omega Speedmaster Ed White Ref.105.003-63 No "T"

Free Worldwide Insured Shipping with FedEx / Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Rare and very collectable Omega Speedmaster Reference 105.033-63 "Ed White". It is named after Edward Higgins White who was wearing the very same reference during Gemini IV mission performing the first spacewalk ever of an American astronaut. The 105.003 was the last "pre-moon" and "pre-professional" reference, which was produced before NASA's certification for space missions and before the legendary Apollo XI mission where the newer model was used. It was also the last reference with "straight lug" case before Omega switched to 105.012 and then to 145.012 defining the design used for the next 50 years.

This particular watch is one of the earliest produced 105.003-63, right after 105.002. That is why it has the transitional dial with no "T" near "Swiss Made" signature.

Comes with handmade Italian strap + period correct Omega buckle. The watch went through complete service in March 2017.
Technical warranty: 1 year.

    Measuring a watch

    It is always crucial to understand the size of the watch, especially when it comes to vintage watches which are generally considered as too small in comparison with what watch industry offers today. For example, the original Patek Philippe Calatrava introduced in the 1930s was only 31 mm in diameter, while today's classic Calatrava is 39 mm. When you think about 8 mm, it doesn't seem to be a big difference, but believe it is.

    In our condition reports we normally disclose three most important parameters as follows: diameter without crown / lug-to-lug length / lug width. 

    Diameter without crown

    It is, so far, the most important measurement to understand the size of a regular round-shaped watch.It helps you to understand proportions and overall look of the watch. It is important to consider width of the bezel and color of the dial, because certain combinations may make the watch look bigger, while some other smaller. It is all very individual, however there is common understanding:

    Lug-to-lug width

    This parameter will help you to understand whether the watch is comfortable for wearing. You should compare lug-to-lug width with the width of your wrist, and if lug-to-lug width is smaller or equal, then this watch shall be comfortable.

    Lug width

    This measurement is defining what size of strap you need for the particular watch. Depending on era and manufacturer you can find watches with lug width between 14 mm and 24 mm. Most common sizes are 18 mm and 20 mm.
