    It's a 2998 (probably a 2998-2 but maybe a -1), and looks to be largely original which is important.

    A nice watch with significant value.

    And you have no idea what year it might be?
    Have a watchmaker remove the case back and post a couple of scans of the inside of the case back and movement showing the serial number. I'm sure you'll get plenty of responses even a couple of PMs offering to buy your Father's watch.

    That's a nice early 1960's CK2998 Speedmaster with alpha hands, lollipop seconds hand and a Base 1000 bezel. Very collectable and value wise probably upwards of €25K.

    maybe a mod could clean up the these two (three) different threads. i remember double posting more than once and feeling "duh!" afterwards.

    nice watch, don't let any repair hacks alter it besides a movement service... no polish, no reface or replace.

    One of my favorite words is 'archconservative'. Until now, I never had reason to believe it could be applied to cost estimates.
