Omega Speedmaster Sets a New Record at Auction in Sweden
While everyone might be focused on the upcoming sale of Paul Newman’s Paul Newman Daytona (t-minus a few hours…), there are in fact still other watches trading hands around the world.
Case in point: Bukowskis auction house in Stockholm, Sweden, just sold an Omega Speedmaster ref. CK 2915-1 for $275,508, setting a new Speedy record for the reference.
The watch is incredible and the result something that would have been inconceivable a few years ago.
You can see just how sharp and crisp the case and bezel are here.
Speedmasters might not seem like rare watches, but when you get into the early executions they can be extremely hard to find, especially in good condition.
This watch is an example of the reference CK 2915-1, making it a first generation Speedy from 1958.
This means that there is of course a caliber 321 movement inside and you get all the iconic design traits like the luminous broad arrow hand, the steel tachymeter bezel, and the slim straight lug case.
