Circa: 1960
Reference No.: CK 2998-2

CASE: 39mm, stainless steel, steel with black (ghost faded) bezel with tachymeter base 1000

Alpha h/m hands, lollipop seconds chrono hand and dagger counter hands

MOVEMENT: Calibre 321, hand-wound column wheel chronograph, 17 jewels

CONDITION REPORT: Dial has faded over time to a brown color, a so-called tropical dial. The inside of the hour chrono register has some light marks around the hole for the hand.
The hands are original, however the lollipop chrono hand luminous material was refilled and color matched. The case appears to be only slightly polished, the lugs are still in their thick original state and the hippocampus is still visible on the case back. The bezel has faded almost completely, a so-called ghost bezel, over time, but is still legible and clearly an original base 1000 corresponding to the 2998-2 reference.


This reference CK2998-2 is the second Speedmaster with the 2998 reference.
