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.

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.

One if each execution of each reference would be 36 watches.

BUT !

It doesn’t end there. There are four, very rare, special dials. A Racing Black, a Racing Grey, a Blue Soleil, and a Grey.  The Racing Grey is seen on 861 but the others I have only seen on 321’s. So four special dials. Each of these deserves a page.
