Omega Speedmaster CK 2998 White Blue. THE King of Cool?

Aug 02, 2022,16:01 PM

A superb straight lugs case, an uber cool white and blue dial, and cherries on the case, the lollipop second hand for the chrono and the luminous bezel. 

What do you think?

It‘s indeed one of the nicest Speedmaster Models in existance.

I personally think it needs to be fittet with a metal bracelet due to its diameter / thickness ratio. The original leather band looks a bit too small on the watch. Here‘s a picture of the one i had for a few years. ...  

It does look great on a bracelet!

Almost my favorite Speedmaster. This comes close to the first place. Honestly, i think Omega made too many variations of the Speedmaster. Not only Omega, others do this also. The Nasa Speedmasters are ok, and than not more than 10 others. All the moon mod... 

Thanks, Weems.

Some watches are great to dissect completely. Very interesting watches. Spring in every detail. I guess the CK 2998 is a kind of Speedmaster that is a timeless one. When i hop to the famous black models, they have some sphere, but are for me boring (dial)... 

Great combo, indeed!

I have to say that even though my Speedies have twisted lugs I prefer straight…

Only thing I would change is the lolli…never appealed to me but it works over all on this dial.

I read also Miles his comment and though it a remarkable reply. The lollipop is for me a lovely detail, and i want a watch from Omega with such a second hand. But first i want to ad a Globemaster to my collection. Why? I think it would be a fine daily Ome...

Yes other friends have used that word with regard to myself. Myles…you’re very “rare”…

One of the most striking modern speedmasters!

lovely reference...

 By: mahesh : August 2nd, 2022-17:41
I think the reference with black dial with red touch is also cool, but the blue takes it a notch up imho. Best, mahesh.,

Maybe they come out with a reverse panda in the future? Have yet to see a simple reverse panda CK speedy..

What’s another “limited edition”? I don’t mind 😁

I'm contemplating should I add a '1' before 5 or after ;-)

I'm already way over that....

I prefer this one

Other than the Snoopy 45th Anniversary addition..

This might be my favorite Speedmaster! I love most Speedmasters and do agree they have made to many but in my opinion the best looking chronograph under 20k.. This photo really makes this watch look enticing!! -D-

Thank you, D.
