This is the last generation of reference CK2915 with only about 1000 units overall. This is correct with black Base 1000 bezel and Alpha Long Hour hands. 

Serial number is 166492XX which is on later side of -3 reference, and confirms originality of black bezel and Alpha hands. Reference 2915-3 is believed to only be produced between 16,648,XXX and 16,649,XXX serial numbers. 

Very good vintage condition case shows defined lugs with sharp edges. No major dings or dents. No corrosion or pitting. 

Base 1000 bezel is original in very good vintage condition with signs of wear. 

Dial is original, “Oval O High Omega” with radium markers and is both original to this watch and period correct for 2915-3. The markers have developed a very nice yellow patina from age and also still show radioactive activity under Geiger Counter. 

Original leaf subdials hands, original Alpha long hour hands are radium with original straight white chrono sweep hand. 

Caseback is original with nice outer engraving. No major tool marks or damage. Inside is stamped 2915-3. 

Crystal is Omega hesalite with logo in center. 

Pushers appear original. The winding crown is newer service replacement, but a period correct Naiad crown will also be included with sale. 

Watch comes on leather strap with Omega vintage steel buckle. 

Watch winds smoothly, runs and chrono runs and resets but no service history is known.
