we have entered a new "permanent" zip code for 2915s it would seem. .
Extraordinarily well defined lugs......
I am surprised by how well the 2998-4 went compared to 105.002 considering neither of them were perfect.
USD 1,068,500 for that ?
and you still have to source a bezel
People are nuts !
The 2998-4 result was quite surprising to me. Can anyone think of a non-tropical -4 (or similar -3/-5) that were in that zip code? I cannot.
agree on the 2998-4. seemed very high
one owner honest all original gilt sub. . .not my cup of tea but. . .there appears to still be a crazy premium bid for truly original wathces
Heeeey. That 2915-1 is only a few hundred serial away from mine.
The buyer of the recent $400k 2915 must be a bit nervous that this on the face of it superior one with a less dodgy bezel and presumably original lume didn’t do better than his.
The 105.002 wasn't ugly though, not the greatest but not an ugly watch. I'm surprised by the price achieved by the 2998, the 2915's didn't.
Sorry for the mild necro, but I'm surprised the non-leaf 2998-4 going for $62,500 hasn't made more of a hubbub in these here parts. Just a collective curious shrug... This seems like a groundbreaking price for what looks like an extremely nice but not totally jaw dropping mid-2998. (Please let me know if I'm missing something spectacular about this particular piece.)
Are we really that convinced that this was just two overeager bidders? Or have nice mid/late-2998s really been achieving those heights in private collector deals lately?
The 2998 value question has been been nagging at me especially hard the past few days for some reason... lack of realistic options notwithstanding
I've sold a couple 2998s over the past 12 months, and none were close to this... they were all roughly in line with speedmaster101 pricing though.
I'd suggest auctions like this are anomalous, and don't reflect the general rule.
Good lord! What a beautiful watch Joel. I could do with some "anomalous" 105.012 results @oddboy. Just to help things along a bit.
Results like this make the Omega watches seem like bargains. That's so far beyond the orbit of Ludicrous, it's crossed interstellar space and is approaching "You-Can't-be Sirius".
That 2998 looks to be in great shape, you don't see many this good in my view
