Forty-nine years...

Post by Steve O. » Fri Jul 20, 2018 8:08 am

...how time flies, so to speak. Nearly fifty years since Apollo 11 landed on the moon - hard to believe! And the beginning of the cult status of the watch worn by the astronauts.

The vintage Speedmasters are really incredible. I kick myself frequently for not picking one up a few years ago when they were relatively inexpensive.
