Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition Hands On

Front of Omega Speedmaster CK2998

Omega CK2998 is a Pre-Moon/ Pre-Professional Speedmaster that case with the the Lemania Caliber 321 movement.

The CK2998 is the second reference in the Speedmaster collection, it known as the “Broad-Arrow” thanks to its distinctively arrow-shaped hour and minute hands.  Omega Speedmaster CK2998 At the first glance, the new timepiece from Omega does not really resemble the original CK2998 that the company had produced back in 1959. The original variant, for instance, does not feature the blue and white color combination that is found in this new watch. The same goes for the strap, in which the original version was fitted with a stainless steel bracelet instead. However, for the more observant Speedmaster fans, you might already have spotted some aspects of this new watch that features the classic characteristics of the original CK2998.

The 40mm stainless steel case is similar to the original CK2998: it is fitted with straight lugs, and noticeably lacking the crown guards at the right side of the watch. Having seen the Speedmaster with its usual case design for most of the time, it took us quite a while to get used to seeing the watch being fitted with a slightly different case. It is admittedly a bit odd, but it is still appealing nonetheless.Side of Omega Speedmaster CK2998
The watch is fitted with Omega’s iconic Caliber 1861. This manual-winding movement is a staple for all the modern “Moonwatch”, and it boasts a decent power reserve of around 48 hours. As an owner of the Moonwatch, the writer personally thinks that this is probably one of the most affordable and reliable chronograph movements that we have in the market. It is not particularly finished to the highest quality, nor does it feature some other fancy complication. But at this price range, the workmanship is excellent enough, and the solid movement does its job very reliably without much hiccups.

The Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition is a nice watch, no doubt about that. We love how Omega had incorporated the blue theme, as well as the other unique characteristics of the CK2998, into this stunning and charming timepiece. The combination is rather pretty, and it adds some spice and flavors into the Speedmaster collection.Omega Speedmaster CK2998 caseback
