Introducing: The Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition (Details & Official Pricing)
First things first, the plan notes they took straightforwardly from the 2998-1: the alpha hands for quite a long time and every single sub-register. Then, we have a base 1000 bezel, and even a candy seconds hand! The candy hand is quite possibly the most adored and wanted qualities in a vintage Speedy, so it’s amusing to see it in the re-version of the 2998.
An unique 1960 reference CK2998-1 with candy hand.
As for what’s extraordinary? All things considered, the undeniable utilization of a rich naval force blue on the dial and the bezel. Here we see the shading portion in the minutes track, while the bezel is in fact a blue clay (yet once more, additional focuses go to Omega for making it Base 1000). The blue earthenware bezel highlights SuperLuminova, which is a pleasant touch for legibility.
The new CK2998 highlights numerous attributes of the first 2998-1 from 1960.
Overall, the new CK2998 is a pleasant tribute to the first Speedy 2998 reference without paying attention to itself as well and attempting to copy a work of art. Inside you will discover the type 1861, and the watch will be restricted to 2,998 pieces. Valuing will be 5,400 CHF. More here .
