Omega “2915-3” Speedmaster

$55,000.00

Description

Up for grabs is an exceptional example of the Reference 2915-3 Omega Speedmaster, which was the the very first model lines of the Omega Speedmaster, produced in the late 1950s. The serial number (1.66xxxx) dates this example to 1958-59. The very first Speedmaster is powered by Omega’s famous caliber 321. The Speedmaster 2915 reference is considered the holy grail of Speedmaster collecting, and it has becoming very difficult to find attractive examples.  This watch was owned for over a decade by its prior owner, a South African native, who purchased it himself from the original owner.

The present example is in great vintage condition.  The case appers unpolished, with normal wear, with the original factory edges still visible; the caseback shows an old engraving of a former owner, and the “Speedmaster” engraving at the edge of the caseback is crisp and visible.  The dial is in great shape, showing no damage, marks, or wear.   The original radium lume is present on the dial and hands, aged to a striking orange color.  Finally, the watch retains its original “Base 1000” bezel, similarly very well-preserved with no wear.

Early Omega Speedmasters, and in particular the reference 2915, are extremely difficult to track down in this condition, and this has to be one of the finest examples of a -3 left in existence!
