An Omega Speedmaster CK2915-1 from 1957 has broken expectations and records at auction, becoming the watchmaker’s most expensive watch ever. The 64-year-old watch went on sale at Phillips Auction House in Geneva as part of Geneva Auction Week, and ended up selling for 3,115,500 CHF (approximately $3,415,000 USD), far above the 80,000-120,00 CHF ($87,000 to $131,000 USD) estimate.

The Speedmaster CK2915-1 was among Omega’s first Speedmaster watches that released in 1957. Since then, the watch has received regular use, often in full sunlight, giving it a unique look with a “tropical” dial that over time has become a rich dark brown color. The unique ageing has also occurred on other elements of the watch, with the display now sporting a uniform golden tone.

The new owner of the watch also received original product literature and an Omega “Extract from the Archives,” which confirms that the record-holding Speedmaster CK2915-1 was produced on November 22, 1957.
