This 1961 Omega Speedmaster Ref. 2998-4 Speedmaster appears to be a rather rough watch, with the chronograph engagement pusher missing at 2 o’clock, the bezel appears to have faded to grey from black due to UV exposure, and the dial and luminous compound is showing signs of ageing.
However, the number that makes the difference is 2998-4, this reference was released in 1961, and is one of the rarest Speedmasters within the lineage, as a result, an auction valuation of £8,000-£12,000 seemed appropriate, when immaculate examples come up for sale, they consistently make in excess of £20,000.
