The absolute highlight of this special Speedmaster sale is lot number three, a rare and never before seen example of the early reference 2915-1. This watch has lived its life practically unworn, and features several previously undocumented traits relative to the already exceedingly rare 2915-1 examples we know of.

Each watch featured in the Speedmaster 50 sale has been thoroughly vetted by the Christie’s Watch Department to ensure total correctness – allowing bidders to know that each watch available here is indisputably correct, an uncommon occurrence with vintage Speedmaster.

The Christie’s Omega Speedmaster 50 sale will take place on December 15, 2015, in New York. This marks the very first time a thematic sale will take place in New York for Christie’s – a nod to the Speedmaster’s shared history with the United States.
