In the past 60 years of production, Speedmaster has released numerous changes. Some years of reference have given rise to the collectibility of the stratosphere.
Among the Speedmaster’s various iterations, reference 2998 is one of the oldest and most collectible. Due to the relatively short production time, the duration from 1959 to 1962, reference 2998 generated 8 sub-references, each of which had its own list of minor differences and changes. Like all the other reference 2998 Speedmaster watches, the reference number 2998-6 is driven by the manual winding of Omega Calibre 321. And after the Calibre of 861 and the Calibre 1861 movement, compared to earlier and more limited products, Calibre 321 movement and its early best Omega reference 2998 Speedmaster replica watches, generally considered the most rare collection at home today and one of the most popular.
One obvious feature of the reference 2998 Speedmaster is its 39 mm diameter watch case with straight convex ears. Most modern speedmasters refer to Omega’s signature twisted wristwatch ear. However, the earliest iterations of the AAA fake Omega watches, such as the reference number 2998, have straight tabs. Combined with its smaller shell diameter and “Base 500” table rings, this feature has more than 90 points (usually abbreviated as DO90 or DON), making the appearance impeccable.
In addition, unlike modern Speedmaster watches such as #SpeedyTuesday, the reference number 2998 is equipped with a triangular “Alpha” pointer. The earliest subreferences to 2998 included the Alpha hand for central time display and chronometer subdial. However, when Omega released reference 2998-6, only the central hour and minute hands were Alpha designs. The sub-dial of the chronometer comes with a straight needle, while the central second hand uses Omega’s “Spear” chronometer pointer.
Due to their age and limited production operation, the surviving examples of the reference 2998 Speedmaster have become very rare and valuable today. Even more rare is that reference 2998 has successfully preserved all the original parts over the years.
