1959 Omega Speedmaster Pre-Professional CK2915-3
The third iteration of the CK2915 made in 1959 only. Rare to find in such excellent conditon.
These either came with a steel Base 1000 bezel or aluminium Base 1000 as seen on this particular watch. Overall the case is nice and sharp, it has of course, like 99% of the straight lug speedmasters out there, seen a polish at somepoint in it's life. The hands were relumed recently with radium and done to an excellent standard.
Supplied to Canada in 1959 as stated on the Omega Extract of the Arcxhives which is included with the watch.

Ck2915 Advert from the 60s
Condition: Considering this watch is 60 years old it's condition is excellent. It is functioning perfectly and stops/starts with no issues. I will warranty the movement for 6 months from the date of invoice. The bezel shows very minimal wear as does the plexi. I have left the minor marks on the plexi for the new ownwr to decide iof they want to polish it or not. The dial is absolutely beautiful, showing a stunning choclate patina.
