Accompanied by an OMEGA Extract from the Archives confirming delivery of the present watch in 1958 to Argentina.
The reference 2915 marked the introduction of the Speedmaster. Paving the way for unparalleled historical occasions, the first Speedmaster reference 2915 was only in production for three years, from 1957 to 1959. The distinguishable features of this reference are the 'broad arrow' hands and steel bezel, although towards the end of its production the reference 2915-3 was fitted with a black bezel and 'alpha' hands, introducing those features to the reference 2915’s successor: the reference 2998.
The present watch is from the second series of this first ever Speedmaster production, bearing the reference 2915-2. It is notable for its original and exceptional condition. With so few early reference 2915-1 and 2915-2 examples known to the market, particularly retaining the original steel bezel and correct hands, this presents a rare opportunity to purchase an extraordinary original ‘broad arrow’ Speedmaster.
An example of the reference 2915 is illustrated and described in OMEGA, A Journey Through Time by Marco Richon, 2007, p. 596.
