It didn’t go to the moon, and the movement is a bit weird.

It is still a great Swiss watch by a great brand. But the OG moonwatch (despite now being a very old design) was approved for space flight and was the first watch that went to the moon. That makes it an iconic part of watch history. It seems weird to get sooooo close to one of the most famous watches in history….and then somehow miss.

None of the speedmasters sold today went to the moon nor are 1:1 replicas of the one that did. There is so much value in the Speedy Racing lines but everyone is so obsessed with the cult of the moonwatch

This is usually my argument against the Speedy 38 for men:
