Omega Speedmaster CK2998

Omega Speedmaster CK2998

When asked to name a shortlist of the most important watches ever made, everyone who knows anything about the topic HAS to mention the Omega Speedmaster.

In the 1960’s when NASA were looking for large, manual wind chronograph for Neil Armstrong and his crew to take to the moon, this is the watch that they wore (Automatic movements don’t work in zero gravity you see) and ever since, it has been referred to as ‘The Moonwatch’.  Incidentally, they took these watches on five subsequent lunar missions too so it’s hardly a flash in the pan.

However, the Speedmaster CK2998 pre-dated all of that by some time.  First released in 1959, the original CK2998 set the design standard for all subsequent Omega Speedmasters – it was literally the first modern Speedmaster.  By the way, it was also worn by Wally Schirra in 1962, during the Mercury Sigma 7 mission so unlike the majority of Speedmaster models, it’s actually been to space.

The watch case is made from stainless steel on a perforated leather strap and the dial is bead-blasted silver, with black sub dials  – the hands are a mix of red, white and black that all add their own flavour to the mix.

Our client bought this watch in 2018 and hardly ever wore it before trading it in with us – it is pretty much as new and in perfect condition.

One of a limited edition of 2998 watches, this Omega Speedmaster CK2998 has everything that came with it from new including the limited edition booklet, special boxes, tags, papers, the lot.

Supplied with the balance of the three year Omega warranty.
