1967 Omega Speedmaster Pre-Professional 105.003-65 NAAFI Issued
This Ed White was bought new on the 29th March 1967 from the NAAFI (BFPO 40) In Germany. It has stayed in the same family from new and has seen actual military service on various operations with the original owner and his son.
I have a letter from the owner covering the military history of the watch for himself and his late father. Granted this watch shows some wear, but that only adds to how amazing this piece is in terms of proveneance. It is complimented by having papers stamped by the supplying NAAFI with the original owners name on.
A true military watch that has seen service and not just purchased from the NAAFI. Further complimented by an Omega Extract of Archives dating the watch to February 3rd 1966 supplied to the NAAFI.
