About this watch

It is a well-documented fact that the Omega Speedmaster ref 2998 was the very first watch worn in space, Wally Schirra in October 1962 has that honour and in my opinion this is the best looking Speedmaster produced, the combination of Alpha hour and minute hands and drop counter weight chrono hand complement each other superbly.

The all original dial on this stunning watch from 1963 is clean and free from any blemishes ,and the DON bezel is among the best you could wish for, although the Alpha hands are service replacements this is reflected in the price and in no way spoils the look of this great piece

The stainless-steel case retains it great shape although at some point in the last nearly 60 years I am sure it will have had some light polishing.

The cal 321 movement is in the correct 19 million range for this watch and dates the piece to exactly the right age and performs superbly.

I enjoy wearing these vintage tool watches on a good leather strap and so have fitted this to a good quality Italian leather vintage look which wears very well although other bracelet options can be discussed if required.

I believe this to be one of the most sensibly priced 2998’s available anywhere so please be quick.
