Launched in 1985, the ref. 345.0809 was the frst ever Speedmaster produced by Omega to feature moonphases. With only approximately 1300 examples produced, the ref. 345.0809 is considered quite rare. Fitted with the cal. 866, an upgrade from the robust and famous cal. 861, the movement is reliable. The present example is presented in overall very good condition with an attractive matte black dial and aged luminous accents which compliment the look of the present piece to another extent. The case retains its sharp edges on the lugs and is further charmed by the presence of its original box.
