1967 Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66 CB Case
The CB case is a special case that was made alongside the HF case in 1966 across the same reference. CB stands for Centrale Boites which was the case manufacturer. The main noticable difference is the facets on the top side of the lugs on the CB as opposed to the HF, which doesnt have these. The ones on this case are still sharp and havent been polished out, which a lot have.
