Omega Speedmaster Ref. 2915 was produced between 1957 and 1959 in three references: 2915-1, 2915-2 & 2915-3. Ref. -1 & -2 both came with the broad arrow hands, steel tachymeter, not to mention the cal. 321 which is known for its precision, stability and durability. These components built a solid foundation for the Speedmaster collection’s brightest star: the Moonwatch- the official watch worn by Apollo 11 astronauts during history’s first moon landing.

This example of 2915-2 was produced in 1958, featuring broad arrow hand, steel base1000 tachymeter, a matching radium lume dial with an oval “O” and a long “R”, matching steel 7077 bracelet, and no. 6 lugs. Kept in excellent original condition, this example is definitely the must-have for collectors.
