Omega in Baselworld 2016 that pays homage to a classic: the Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition. 40mm stainless steel case is similar to the original CK2998: it is fitted with straight lugs, and noticeably lacking the crown guards at the right side of the watch. Having seen the Speedmaster with its usual case design for most of the time, it took us quite a while to get used to seeing the watch being fitted with a slightly different case. It is admittedly a bit odd, but it is still appealing nonetheless.
The Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition is fitted with the uncommon “alpha” hands (for both the minute and hour hands, and the three hands found on the sub-dials), as well as the “lollipop” center chronograph hand that is found on some of the CK2998. They certainly make the watch more unique, since the usual “baton” hands may get a tad boring at times. Finally, similar to the Pre-Professional Speedmasters, this watch does not include the word “Professional” on its dial. It makes the dial cleaner, and hence giving it a less cluttered feel. However, the similarity ends there. The original CK2998 does not come with a white dial, and neither was the minute track highlighted in blue. In addition, the CK2998 Limited Edition features a rather contemporary blue ceramic bezel ring, with a tachymeter scale that is filled with SuperLuminova.
