The main focus of Baselworld 2018 was the Seamaster collection which celebrated its 70th anniversary this year, but the Biel-based brand could not completely ignore the other icon Speedmaster. Apart from the modern and dazzling Dark Side of Apollo 8 version, there was something very desirable for a new CK2998 limited edition to appear in Omega. It is not an innovative one, it is a cool cool cool watch of a vintage sense. Please see Omega REPLICA WATCHES Speedmaster CK2998 Pulse Meter.
Speedmaster is a clock that does not require introduction to the world of watch. It is symbolic (I used the word “I”). It is a design that can be recognized immediately after testing the time. The new Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Psometometer is fitted with a 39.7 mm diameter steel case with 19 mm lag spacing and can be worn clean with most wrist size, but with a 19 mm lag spacing. It covers the dial with sapphire crystal, surrounding it is a black ceramic bezel displaying a pulsometer scale. To hold the watch on your wrist, CK 2998 comes with a white rubber perforated black leather strap inside. Inside this watch there is Omega Caliber 1861 which is the movement of the manually rolled chronograph in the current Moonwatch model.
The basic recipe of this Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Psometometer is the same as that used in 2012 with FOIS and CK2998. The stainless steel case is inspired by the first generation of the Speedmaster watch before NASA.Omega decided to protect more on the crown and pusher. The Professional Speedmaster has a rear lug and an asymmetric case with a diameter of 42 mm, but CK2998 relies on a so-called “straight” or symmetrical case where the crown and pusher are not protected. Therefore, this case is smaller than the professional version of 39.7 mm, but still has a big presence on the wrist due to the long lag.
The Caliber 1861 features a 48 hour power reserve and a frequency of 21,600 bph and has demonstrated its reliability for many years. Aesthetically, this limited edition is very similar to the blue CK 2999. Omega was released in 2016 and different color tones and pulsometer scales were released instead of the tachymeter scale. This latest version has a white dial with black subdial and outer track, red chronograph hand with contrast, red “Speed Master” text. Unlike the standard “Moon Watch” hand, the handset here is characterized by Alpha’s hand instead. Regardless of name, no one can resist the panda dial when I find the watch a very attractive phone. Overall, the Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Pulsometer is a member of the Speedmaster Family and brings new personality.
Indeed, I will dig indeed this watch. There may be people who dislike seeing a limited version of Speedmaster a bit more, but this is only for me. The panda dial is performed very well and the red accents give the watch a wonderful sporty feel. Besides, I am always a big fan of brands that use scales other than tachymeter. To do that, you need a chronograph bezel. I do not have the ability to do complicated maths in flight and there is no reason to use the scale of the tachymeter because there is a speedometer functioning in the car. Currently, I am not a doctor, not measuring the pulse of people every day, but the pulsometer scale is a more convenient function than the conventional tachymeter. This is a watch that I can see very easily as I like what I have.
