The Omega Speedmaster is easily the brand's most iconic model. From its launch in 1957, the watch has positioned itself as the professional model of the brand. It was the first watch to ever be fitted with a precise tachymeter scale on the bezel as opposed to it being printed on the dial.


When NASA decided to equip astronauts with chronograph watches, they selected three watches which they tested in the most extreme conditions. The Speedmaster was the chosen victor and declared Flight Qualified for all Manned Space missions. After many expeditions to space, in 1969, it became the first watch to be worn on the moon. It has since continued to be a favourite choice of those spacebound few.

The reference CK2915 is part of the first series of Speedmasters, only produced between 1957 and 1959. There were three different versions in production for a total of approximately 3000 pieces. This particular watch, with it's reference prefixed '-1', is part of the very first production made only between 1957 and 1958. 

The present watch, produced in September 1958, was delivered and sold in Norway where it remained until now. It still retains the original broad arrow hands, they dial is slightly tropical and retains its original radium indexes. Further it has its original bezel and the case back is engraved only 'Speedmaster' to the outermost edge.

This watch is offered with an Omega Certificate of Authenticity confirming production on September 18, 1958 and delivery to the Norwegian market.
