The OMEGA Speedmaster has been a respected icon in the world of watches since the 1960’s, due to it’s out of this world achievements. Famously commissioned by NASA to be worn by astronauts on the legendary moon landing of 1969, the Speedmaster soon established the nickname the ‘Moonwatch’. Although, this was not the first time an OMEGA had been worn into space. Prior to the prestigious moon landing, an earlier model, the OMEGA Speedmaster CK2998 (released in 1959) was worn into space on a Mercury flight back in 1962. This historic model inspired OMEGA to produce a new limited-edition in 2016, the Speedmaster CK 2998. Fast forward to Baselworld 2018, OMEGA quietly showcased the new Speedmaster CK2998 Pulsometer, featuring a new colour scheme and pulsometer bezel, distinguishing it from its recent predecessor.
The new Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition possess heritage features as the former 2016 Edition. From the 39.7mm stainless steel case, the dark coloured bezel, to the original Alpha-shaped hour and minute hands and straight seconds hand. Only now, the new Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition ‘Panda’ style is coloured in black and silver, rather than the 2016 blue and silver combination.
The sand-blasted, silver coloured dial features contrasting black sub dials, blackened hour indicators and a blackened minute track. A new addition to the Speedmaster CK2998 is the introduction of a black ceramic, Pulsometer bezel. (Pulsometer scale enables the measurement of heart beats per minute) The blackened Alpha hands and hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova, enabling legibility in many given conditions. Finally, the vintage inspired watch is presented on the black micro-perforated leather strap, lined with a white rubber for extra durability.
The screwed down, stainless steel caseback, houses the famous manual-winding Omega Caliber 1861 (This historic movement was worn on the moon) suppling the Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition with an impressive power reserve of 48 hours.
