This is the reference 2915-1 which is the the very first Omega Speedmaster produced from 1957. The 2915-1 is one of the most difficult Speedmaster models to find especially in such complete and nice condition.
The bezel of the 2915-1 is made of a thin metal material and typically they are destroyed or not even on the watch. The bezel of this Speedmaster is intact and in excellent condition. The original dial of the watch is incredible with beautiful patina and with the original broad arrow hands (which are also hard to find as many were replaced with normal hands during service). The 2915-1 back case is also a little different as the Speedmaster signature is along the edge of the case which is very crisp on this particular watch.
The very first Speedmaster is powered by Omega's famous caliber 321. This Speedmaster 2915-1 is definitely a collectors grail watch and is extremely rare to find such a stellar example for sale as most are either in private collections or in poor condition.
