Omega Speedmaster CK2915-1 hammered for a world record price of CHF 3,115,500

An Omega Speedmaster CK2915-1 produced in 1957 has been hammered today for a world record price of CHF 3,115,500 by Phillips Watches at The Geneva Watch Auction: XIV (5, 7 November 2021) smashing the estimated auction price of 80,000-20,000 Swiss Francs.

Reference CK2915 was only made between 1957 and 1959 and produced in just three different iterations. This 38 mm model in stainless steel (Lot 53) was among the first batch of Omega Speedmaster watches released in 1957 as part of the brand’s “Trilogy” of professional watches, which also included the Seamaster 300 and Railmaster.

The first generation of CK 2915, is considered a "grail" watch by many collectors. It was the first chronograph to feature a tachymeter scale on the bezel rather than on the dial as well as the first Speedmaster to draw its power from the famous Calibre 321, an extremely robust and reliable movement.

The eye-catching "tropical" dial has aged to a milk-chocolate shade. The luminous material on both the dial and hands have also aged to a perfectly matching golden tone. This uniformity of colour confirms that the watch has not undergone any disruptive servicing.

Together with the watch, the new owner received an Omega “Extract from the Archives” - confirming production on November 22, 1957 - and the original product literature. omegawatches.com
