Omega Speedmaster Sets New Record At Phillips Geneva, Breaking $400,000 Mark

It broke through both the estimate and the previous record in dramatic fashion.

Well, today might have been all about the Rolex Daytona, with the Phillips Daytona Ultimatum sale resulting in several million-dollar-plus sales, including that of the second most expensive Rolex, ever.

But the afternoon also gave us a new record for an Omega Speedmaster. Minutes ago at Phillips Geneva, the hammer fell on an excellent-looking Omega Speedmaster reference 2915-1 „Broad Arrow,“ the first-generation of Omega Speedmasters. The new record is $408,500, breaking through the previous record of $275,508 we saw at Bukowski’s in Sweden last year. It shouldn’t necessarily come as a huge surprise to see such an impressive result for the first execution of Omega’s best-known and most collected sports watch, especially at high-profile sale at Phillips Geneva – but this watch smashed its estimate of CHF 80,000 to CHF 140,000.

There are plenty of other big lots still to come in the Phillips Geneva: Seven auction, including the sale of another rare Omega that was the personal watch of Elvis Presley.
