When perfect replica Omega decided to create a re-edition of the first Speedmaster ever to travel into space, there was no debate, it had to be directly inspired by the CK2998 worn by Schirra. What’s special about this version of the Speedy…?
The Swiss made fake Speedmaster CK2998 is the second generation of this watch, with subtle evolutions compared to the inaugural CK2915 model. While sharing the same symmetrical case with straight lugs and the same movement – calibre 321 – the CK2998 differs mostly regarding its bezel and its hands. While the first generation Speedmaster was fitted with a steel bezel and an engraved tachymeter scale, the CK2998 introduced the black anodized aluminium bezel that will be the norm for all following references (still in use in 2021). The earliest models featured a “base 1000” tachymeter scale while the CK2998-4 worn by Schirra came with a “base 500” scale, as seen in the photos here.
The other noticeable feature of the CK2998, which was found only in this generation, was the distinctive set of hands. Replacing the metallic broad arrow hands of the CK2915, and prior to the introduction of the white “professional” baton hands, the CK2998 was fitted with so-called “Alpha” metallic hands. Its dial, as most early Speedmasters, was matte black and stepped, featuring an applied Ω logo at 12 o’clock and tall markers. Of course, the “professional” mention wasn’t yet existing.
The Bienne-based firm enhances its precious collection, designed for showing off the most elegant wrists, with three sumptuous newcomers, dressed from head to toe in gold and sprinkled with diamonds.
A treasure is a quantity of precious objects set aside, often hidden” according to the Collins Dictionary, or the sweet endearment we call a loved one. For Swiss made replica Omega, watchmaker by trade, replica Trésor is a watch (of course), belonging to the best replica De Ville collection, and a dazzling one at that (of course, too). As celebrations highlighting a rather complex end of year are just around the corner, the Bienne-based firm unveils three spectacular new pieces, three jewels which tell the time.
The 36 mm-diameter case, totally out-of-the-ordinary with its two parallel arms scattered with diamonds which taper out along the dial in opposite directions to each other so as to spread over two of the four lugs, is crafted in MoonshineTM, a gold alloy which is paler than the traditional yellow and more resistant to color changes. Its crown which blossoms like a corolla embraces a gemstone and is engraved with a red-lacquered flower, which is also to be discovered on the caseback’s mirrored circle.
Three dial styles are proposed, from the most discreet to the most dazzling: coated with a brilliant white cloak, in textured MoonshineTM gold like silk with its relief patterns and criss-cross interlacing, and sprinkled with diamonds of various sizes, strewn using the snow-set technique. A duo of golden Lancine-shaped hands emerges from the center of this fairytale scenescape, pointing to the hours and minutes, hovering over slender Roman numerals.
The centerpiece of this sumptuous trio driven by the Omega 4061 quartz caliber is its bracelet which is created entirely in MoonshineTM gold and fashioned like fabric.
