The Omega Speedmaster, born in 1957, is one of the most iconic wristwatches ever produced. Since 1965, it has been the choice of space programs for over half a century and has been associated with some of mankind’s greatest space adventures, earning it the name The Moonwatch.
Naturally, beyond its professional use for more than sixty years, the Speedmaster, with its incredible history and its timeless design, has appealed to a much wider public throughout the world.
The first Speedmaster, reference CK 2915, was manufactured for less than three years at an estimated production figure of between 3’000 and 4’000. There are 3 sub-references, 2915-1 to 2915-3. The distinctive features of this model are the “broad arrow” hour hand and a steel “base 1000” bezel. At the end of its production, the reference 2915-3 was fitted with a new black “base 1000 “ bezel and “alpha hands”, a transition to the new CK 2998 reference.
