    I'm nowhere near expert, but two observations (after looking at the 2915s on Speedmaster 101 http://speedmaster101.com/2915-2/ ).

    The bezel looks wrong. The numbers should be much closer to the outside.

    The examples of these on 101 show the top curve of the S in Speedmaster almost directly under the O of Omega.

    Well, 2915-1 casebacks didn't feature a seahorse, so even if everything else was passable as genuine (which it very much is not) that would still be a red flag.

    Wait...how can you doubt this...it came from someone's father. Could be close to an uncle, no?

    Ash - the lume on the subdial hands rings a bell. This may indeed be that 2915 from New York for $6500ish.

    2915-1's do indeed have a seahorse, but the engraving on this one is well off. The dial looks like a modern service replacement that's been aged. Bezel very suspect. The list goes on........

    I am no expert, but own several speedys, bezel is wrong ("C" and dashes), dial is wrong (right sub dial), caseback speedmaster lettering wrong, hands probably wrong( lume size) and probably a lot more. I also concur Lima Peru.
