Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, and thus the Moonwatch. Gerard and I talk about 11 different Speedmasters in this special video we created to commemorate this special anniversary.
We love Speedmasters, that’s no secret. So, we thought it would be a nice idea to sit down and talk about a number of our Speedmaster watches. We decided to go with 11 different Speedmasters, a number for obvious reasons. So, last week, we sat down in The Hague in the Limoncello lunchroom and discussed 11 different Speedmasters, including the Speedmaster Apollo XI 50th anniversary watch in Moonshine gold (we reviewed it here).
Besides all the different Apollo XI footage you will see this weekend on television, youtube and other websites, we hope you will enjoy our 45-minute tribute to the Apollo XI landing (and watch) as well.
A big THANK YOU to Limoncello in The Hague for allowing us to use their lunchroom after closing time. The video has been made and processed by Christopher Lazarom. He did an amazing job considering the short timeframe and unplanned circumstances.
