    Hi all, thought it may be worthwhile having a countdown, 10 to 1 of Speedmasters for the 50th anniversary of the first watch on the moon.
    If you don't have 10 Speedmasters (I don't) then feel free to use another watch but lets make the final 3 Speedmasters only, ending up with your favourite on The Day.
    To kick things off here is my pre moon.
    Cheers and cant wait to see those speedies :)

    Not on my wrist at present, but it will be on the 20th. I might also wear my rose gold and steel Speedmaster reduced for part of the week.

    Used this photo a year ago on Instagram to prove that a wristwatch could easily be worn underneath a spacesuit...
    Meanwhile Instagram is deleted and folks who came to one of my lectures fully agreed as they could try out 3 types of real spacesuit gloves
    Today's ISS crewmembers often wear three wristwatches, one on each wrist underneath the Sokol suit and one strapped over forearm...
