The Rather Wonderful Speedmaster 2915

I thought it was about time I took a bunch of shots of this one, getting close to when it needs to go away for a little TLC.

Restoration is a personal thing, my view is that you need to keep the watch as original as humanly possible. On this 2915, sat in a drawer since the 70’s, there is not a great deal that needs doing. It needs an original crown and one is on its way, I have acquired a full set of hands if needed, we shall see as I’m not 100% convinced that the sub hands need replacing. The original bracelet 7077 is on the way too. Dial needs a clean, maybe just maybe a relume in tritium, maybe not. That leaves us with the bezel, its a tough one to call and a personal decision but I feel that its either original or its not, that leaves me with the task, the near impossible task, of locating an original bezel. The only other possible alternative is to have an exact replica custom made, and I mean exact! Its the “right” thing to do.

Take a look at this bunch of pics, hopefully I will be back with some “after” shots sometime in the future. No rush though as the 50th anniversary is not until 2007 [the speedmaster 2915 was created in 1957], I’d just like it to be ready for then. The images in the pictures with 50 Club on them are from a promotion that Omega ran with its dealers staff in the early 1980’s , if you sold 50 watches you got to choose a free Omega for yourself up to a value of £175. I just thought it was appropriate for the 2915, soon to be a true member of the 50 club along with the 2913 and 2914, I’m tempted to include the Ranchero 2990 in that club too.

Enjoy!
