Incoming CK2998 Omega Speedy!

This is my first Omega I really liked this watch when it came out. I looked around and everywhere was sold out!

This weekend I was in Monterrey MX and went to a local mall and there it was in the display case!

Walked in tried it on the cool part is I got for less than list price due to the exchange rate, not bad in books!

A beauty !! Enjoy !

I just got the same one today. A Bday gift from my wife, brand new from the OB in Madrid. It also came with a 50th anniversary commemorative Space Pen and a little astronaut pin.

Not my first Speedy by the way: it's joining an Apollo XV 35th, an Apollo XI 30th "Hello Houston", and a Skywalker X-33.
