As far as famous watches go, the Speedmaster is way up there. And aside from its famous extraterrestrial exploits, itís also a real staple of the watch world, which is why a Speedy was a natural choice of wrist wear for my recent Swiss trip. The fact that this trip included spending some quality time with Omega only sealed the deal. The next question was: which Speedmaster? Well, in the end, my decision wasnít too hard, because even though youíre spoiled for choice, I wanted a more classical iteration, and one with a mix of personality and versatility. So I plumped for the 2018 limited edition, the CK 2998. Once I put it on, it felt Ö pleasingly petite. It measures 39.7mm across, so itís not really too small, but thanks to that broad black bezel, it wears smaller than youíd expect. Itís also, thanks to the manual winder inside, thinner than the automatic chronographs I typically road test. Itís a nice-feeling watch; present, but certainly not overpowering. Looks-wise Ö itís vintage, but not too vintage if you take my meaning. In case youíre not familiar, the CK 2998 is based on the first Omega in space, a 2998 worn…
