No surprise that the earliest generations of Speedmaster reference 2915 are so collectible. Featuring the metal Base 1000 tachometer bezel as well as the broad arrow hands, this example has never been offered at auction before. Still mounted with its original “Oval” O dial as well as its original broad arrow hands, it even still shows a faint Speedmaster still engraved on the outer caseback showing the full originality of this piece.
