    I picked this up on Friday and after taking some pics for my YouTube review, I thought I'd share them here as well. It's yet another Limited Edition Speedmaster, I know, but I think it stands out nicely amongst the crowd. It's based around the original CK2998, but with a modern twist; it wouldn't have appealed to me as much personally in black.

    The blue is perfect in its hue, and it feels like a very solid and reliable watch. The leather strap isn't something I'd normally like, but it works well in this case; although I'm unsure if I'll keep it on that as I may change it for a NATO at some point down the line.

    Finally, it comes packaged in a lovely wooden box, which is based on the FOIS packaging, but states "Limited Edition" on the upper section. Overall, I'm really pleased with the design and wearability of the watch.

    That is breathtaking! Would it be out of line to inquire as to the msrp?

    There have been a few offered on the sales forum if you do a quick search.

    At first they were being offered for much over MSRP but have quickly come down in price. Many threads available on this reference if you're interested...

    As said, a watch that looks even better in the flesh than on these (beautiful!) pics :)

    Awesome!

    Your photography is fantastic. Great review. I got mine a month or so ago and an really enjoying it. The blue really sets this one apart.

    Great pictures. Had mine a couple of month. Just looks better each time I look at it. I've tried a few different combos with straps but always ends up back on the blue leather , just suits it so well.

    I'm new to this forum. What a fantastic review. Love the blue dial. Wanted a speed master pro. I may just buy this instead and get the pro in years to come.

    The Mickey Mouse detail is such a great detail for you to notice :thumbsup: Shows that you put some thoughts into this review and that you got under the skin of this watch. Thank you!
