For sale is a gorgeous example of a Speedmaster 3592.50 from the early 90’s. The first open series of display case-back Speedies, the 3592 features a Hesalite crystal and sapphire display. Additionally, it was one of the only refs that used the caliber 863, which is the same as the 861, but with gilt plating, and was one of the last ref’s with a tritium dial. Unlike many older Speedmasters, the tritium on the 3592 also aged in a very consistent manner, achieving a beautiful golden hue that is the same on the dial and the hands.
The watch is in very good condition and keeps excellent time, but was worn regularly and does show some general signs of wear and a scuff or two on the crystal, but nothing major or some polywatch and elbow grease couldn’t get out.
The watch comes mounted to a 1479 bracelet in excellent condition that is sized for a 7” wrist, but has additional links with it. The “Speedmaster” script on the clasp still has black paint in it. The 1479 is a very nice bracelet that bridges the gap between the vintage classics and the very modern bracelets, and has NO polished sections, which I always felt was a big plus.
The watch comes with a white outer box, a gray inner box with pillow and an unfilled international warranty card. The box has seen better days, but that’s how it was when I got it. No telling if they originally came with the watch or not, but I do believe it is the correct style of box for the era.
Asking $4,750 Paypal, Venmo, Chase quickpay only, CONUS highly preferable.
