Catalogue Note

The original Speedmaster reference 2915 was discontinued in 1959 and replaced with the present model, reference 2998.  This reference had a very small production run for only three years and was discontinued in 1962. The reference 2998 has some slight differences and can be differentiated by the /1, /2 and /3 following the reference number. These differences or modifications are primarily the dial and use of hands. The dials featured either a flat or stepped dial and the signatures on the dial are also slightly different with longer secondary markers and lollipop chronograph hand.

This particular reference features a stepped dial and rare case with straight lugs, and powered by the Omega caliber 321. It furthermore features its correct black aluminum bezel insert graduated to 500 units, lollipop chronograph hand and Omega steel bracelet expandable links. The watch is offered in very original condition and still retains its original crystal.
