Prestige Hong Kong - Tic Talk - - INDUSTRY | AUCTIONS -

When this Omega Speed­mas­ter 2915-1 sold for 2.3 mil­lion Swedish krona at Bukowskis auc­tion house in Swe­den this Oc­to­ber, it broke the world record for the most ex­pen­sive watch of its kind, and also be­came the most ex­pen­sive watch ever to be sold by Bukowskis, ush­er­ing in a new era of en­thu­si­asm for the clas­sic Speed­mas­ter. This par­tic­u­lar first-gen­er­a­tion Speedy, from 1958, be­came so lusted af­ter due to its ex­cel­lent con­di­tion (it was found in a box in an at­tic, and had been un­pol­ished and un­worn for decades), and of course for the orig­i­nal cal­i­bre 321 move­ment within.
