When the ref CK 2998 was introduced in 1959, there were many successive changes made to the case design that were distinctive to its predecessors. The black acrylic bezel was introduced as well as noticeable changes to the hands. However, there were numerous much more subtle changes to come over the four following years, which are less easily identifiable, and that might only be differentiated by the length of the hands for example, or the scale on the bezel, with each modification only defined by the number after the hyphen in the reference number inscribed on the inside of the case back.
