Reference Table – Expanded Edition

On this site I deal with seven case references of steel cased Speedmasters .

Almost each reference is subtly different from its neighbor, and that needs to be checked in the details pages, here.

All but one have many sub references.

The 2915-3 and the 105.002-62 have two further executions.  These are denoted by the suffixes BA (Broad arrow) A (Alpha) and B (Baton).

There are two limited editions – the 1975 Soyuz with its 5.5mm pushers, and the 1969 18kt gold. Both, literally, worth more than their weight in gold. These are included in the right hand column.

While many people are happy with one watch, others collect more. Some collectors, if looking for a complete set, choose just one of each reference, so seven watches would cover each of the references – without looking at the different date backs or executions.

There are 38 watches in the list above.

There are also some special dials seen. These are the grey or blue metalic luster, (known as “Solei Dials) and grey matt dials. So far I have not seen an extract that acknowledged this dial, but they are very attractive and very valuable. (there was one offered at Phillips December 2018 but it was so dodgy it did not sell).
