This reference CK2998-1 is the first Speedmaster with the 2998 reference. This particular watch has a very early serial and consequently a 2915-3 dial as a transitional model would have. This is an extrememely rare occurrence. This would make this the earliest possible version of the CK 2998-1 with Alpha hands, non lollipop and the Mark 0 dial for this reference.
