Footnotes

  • The Omega Speedmaster Ref. CK 2998-2 was launched in 1959, and was the successor to the ‘Broad Arrow’ reference CK 2915. This reference differed from its predecessor in that the Broad Arrow hands were replaced with Alpha hands, and the steel bezel with one with a black insert. There were two generations of this reference; the first with large dot chronograph hand as in this present lot, and the second with a plain baton chronograph hand.
