Notes

The Ref. CK 2998 was launched in 1959 and was the successor to the "Broad Arrow", reference CK 2915. This reference differed from its predecessor in that the "Broad Arrow" hands were replaced with "Alpha" hands and the steel bezel with one with a black insert. There were two generations of this reference: 1. the first, with large dot chronograph hand; 2. the second with baton chronograph hand. This ref. 2998-62 stops with the movement number 19584xxx, and is usually called the "pre-moon" by collectors. Omega Calibre321 with column wheel was created in 1946. It was formerly called "27CHROC12T2"and was used on first generation "moon watches 2". The calibre was replaced in 1968 with Cal. 861.
