Produced in a limited edition of 2988 pieces, this contemporary timepiece pays tribute to the original Swiss OMEGA Speedmaster CK2998 wristwatch that was released in 1959. The Speedmaster CK2998 is one of the most sought-after vintage Speedmasters in the world, stands out with alpha hands, symmetrical case and dark bezel, it has always been a strong favourite.
In the new Omega Speedmaster Watch, many of the iconic features of the original model have been retained, yet the watch has been updated for a new generation and offers much more in terms of stunning design. The striking blue colour has been used on all three subdials, as well as the minutes track and a polished ceramic bezel with tachymeter base scale. The tachymeter scale is also coated in Super-LumiNova for increased visibility in dark conditions.
There is a blue leather strap with subtle “beige” stitching and a polished buckle. The polished and brushed stainless steel case is complemented by an opaline silvery dial that also houses a number of exquisite features. Firstly, rhodium-plated “Alpha” hands are used for the hours and minutes, as well as on the subdials. For the chronograph seconds hand, we have reintroduced the “lollipop”style which is linked to the original model. Only 2,998 of these collectable watches have been produced and each Limited Edition number can be found on the caseback, along with an embossed Seahorse medallion, Ω logo and “SPEEDMASTER” name. The watch is driven by the OMEGA Calibre 1861, a movement that was famously used in the very first “Moonwatch”.
