Description

Up for grabs is an excellent example of the Reference 2998-2 Omega Speedmaster, which is one of the earliest Speedmasters produced by Omega, and one of the only references to use the famous “lollipop” chronograph hand. The serial number (1.7xxxxx) dates this example to 1960. The very first Speedmasters were powered by Omega’s famous caliber 321. Early Speedmasters, such as this example, are grails amongst collectors, and finding well-preserved examples has become exceedingly difficult.

The present example is in excellent condition. The case is unpolished, with normal wear, with the original factory edges still visible; there are no major tool marks on the caseback, aside from a few light scuffs. The dial is in great shape, with no chips, scratches or major damage Further, the dial has aged to a nice dark brown “tropical” color. The original “Base 1000” bezel has also aged to a faded blue-hue color, and is in good condition with normal wear. The original radium lume is present on the dial, aged to a nice yellow color, and reacting under UV light as it should; the hands have been professionally color-matched to the dial.
