Omega Speedmaster 2998 Men's Vintage Chronograph Watch
An exceptionally well preserved example of the Omega Speedmaster 2998. This particular watch is an example of the sixth case reference known as the Omega Speedmaster 2998-6 from circa 1962-63.
Produced between 1959 – 1963 the Omega Speedmaster 2998 is a favourite among collectors. Taking over from the Speedmaster reference CK 2915, the 2998 was offered in eight case references, known as 2998-1 through to 2998-6 and then the 2998-61 and 2998-62.
The 2998 was not only the first Speedmaster to come exclusively with a black bezel but also the first Speedmaster in space having been worn as the personal watch of astronaut Wally Schirra on the Sigma 7 mission of the Mercury program in 1962.
Things to look out for on the Reference 2998-6 are a straight lugged, crown-guard-less symmetrical case with a double step case back, alpha hands, stick sub-dial hands, stepped dial with applied Omega logo, circular “O” in Omega, long markers in the minute sub-dial, dot over 90 (DO90) bezel and a symmetrical clutch bridge on the calibre 321 movement.
A truly stunning and highly collectable watch, prices for Omega Speedmaster Ref. 2998's are only going one way and fast!
