  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 1957, the distinguished Speedmaster CK2915 was created by Pierre Moina, with the case designed by Claude Baillod. The Omega Speedmaster CK2915 is the rarest Speedmaster model in the market, as only about 3,000 to 4,000 examples were produced. The distinctive features of this reference include the steel bezel and “broad arrow” hands.

    Very rarely seen in the secondary market and one of the most uncommon models, the present 2915-3 is preserved in great overall condition still retaining the broad arrow hands, black “base 1000” bezel, micro-size Omega logo crystal and the original Omega stainless steel bracelet. The present watch is furthermore enhanced by its dial that is turning into a tropical brown shade that any collectors would desire.

    According to the Archive of Omega, the present watch was delivered to the Venezuela market in 1959.

  • Artist Biography

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
