Probably not that much moon rock (in private hands) to go around.

Very special, surprisingly. I like that it's not a limited production. If something is really worthy, then there's no reason to stop making it. Low production and high price will keep this one exclusive, yet not impossible to get.

Another 50th Anniversary Speedmaster !

That new Plat Speedmaster is a beauty:







But price will be prohibitive for most.

A 40th anniversary Apollo 11 in Platinum, numbered 59 out of 69 run, still in stock at my local Boutique if anyone is interested. Just $90k

It is a beautiful watch but,

The white hands on the original makes the speedy the most legible famous chronograph made... in every addition where the white hands are replaced, imho it is a compromise of a core aesthetic and functionality.

I would’ve preferred no meteorite sub dials
