2012 Omega Speedmaster “First Omega In Space” Reissue w/ Box and Booklets
The Omega Speedmaster Professional is by far one of our most favorite chronographs. The Speedmaster has an incredible history starting with automotive racing moving into flight and eventually to NASA and the U.S. Space Program. There are many subtle differences within the vintage Omega Speedmaster range of references that make them all slightly unique and different.
This Speedmaster “First Omega In Space,” is a reissue Speedmaster inspired by a historically important model worn in space on October 3, 1962, by U.S. astronaut Walter Schirra which is based on the reference# 2998 what makes this reissue special as you will notice is the straight lugs and thin bevel between the top and the sides which are directly inspired by original Omega Speedmaster CK2998, and were a common feature of early pre-moon Speedmasters. Omega decided to adopt asymmetrical twisted lugs after 1964 with the launch of the Speedmaster Professional. Another feature brought back from the original CK2998 is the applied logo at 12 o’clock, which pops off the dial unlike the more commonly printed logo of post-1968 Speedmasters.
