FS: Classic Vintage Omega Speedmaster 2998-5 for $18,000

I am selling my Speedmaster, and it is in nice honest condition. I have owned the watch for 6-7 years and it was last serviced in 2016. It keeps great time and winds smoothly, as a good Cal 321 should.
I recently installed the correct lower pusher and crown in the past year after I posted on OF a few months back seeking help.
Case is good, while the Caseback has a very nice inscription from a father to his son on December 7 1962.
Dial and hands are very nice and as far as I can tell original. The dial looks to me to be a very dark chocolate color, but you be the judge. The hands may have been relumed before I go it as they no longer glow when exposed to UV light. The dial lume does glow for a few seconds.
Movement number is 18946947 which could be just a little late for a 2998-5 from various reference sources. However, a number of experts are very comfortable that it is original to this watch. If you have any doubts, so be it.
Pictures are an integral part of the description and if you want more, please ask.
Price is $18,000, which includes ParcelPro/FedEx shipping in CONUS paid via bank wire or check, no PayPal. I will ship internationally and let's discuss.
