Omega Speedmaster CK-2915 - 3594.50.00

Omega Speedmaster CK-2915 – 3594.50.00

Now this a cool shot – courtesy of our friends at Amsterdam Watch Company: the original CK-2915 versus its modern ‘replica’, the 3594.50.00. Great family resemblence – although a 1957 replica based on the modern First Omega in Space would probably be even better!

That being said, Omega did a great job on the 3594.50.00. The bezel, hands, dial and caseback were all changed – only the mid case, movement and bracelet were the same as the regular 3570.50.00. Rather thorough!

Pay our friends a visit at www.AWCo.nl. Yes, this is the same CK-2915 as featured in our Epic Speedmaster Wristshot post.

The Omega Speedmaster 1957 Replica was Omega’s first attempt at a Speedmaster based on a vintage model. Contrary to today’s First Omega in Space, the 1957 Replica used the same case as the regular Speedmaster Professional, but featured a stainless steel engraved bezel, custom dial (note the applied logo, vintage script and lack of Professional-wording) and so-called Broad Arrow hands – all to resemble the original CK-2915. Being a tribute to the 1957 model, it of course also lacked the text referring to the Moonwalk on the caseback.

The 3594.50.00 was part of the Mission-series, but it was also available in regular production – on either leather strap or bracelet.

We tend to think this is a great watch. It can be had for good prices and looks surprisingly different when compared to your regular Professional. It was often delivered on the stainless steel bracelet, which – in our humble opinion- looks kind of out of place. It is however hard to beat on a vintage-looking leather strap or NATO though!

On a side note: we can’t help but wonder how this bezel and hands would look on a First Omega in Space.. That would be one perfect homage to the CK-2915!

On another side note: yes, the Replica name is somewhat weird for a watch that is clearly an original.. In some cases, people prefer to call this one the Re-edition.

Feeling the vintage vibe? The First Omega in Space is a great choice!

Another stunner shared by one of our friends: the Omega Speedmaster 1957 Replica 3594.50.00. Inspired by the original CK-2915, the Speedmaster 1957 Replica features a stainless steel, engraved bezel, Broad Arrow hour hand, Alpha hands for the subdials and a dial with applied Omega logo and distinct script. Very cool!
