In the last month I saw a great deal of 50th anniversary coverage of the first moonwalk. This made me very proud of the accomplishments of all involved on so many levels. My collection has until now been mostly focused on Rolex and Panerai. I started to see the Speedmaster getting some media time and appearing in posts on a number of watch forums. Sure enough after trying a Speedmaster on I picked up a new full set Hesalite with the SS bracelet. I had a custom alligator strap 20/18 mm made from an strap maker that did a bunch for my Panerai. Put the watch on the new strap with an OEM tang buckle. Very pleased by the look and super comfortable feel on the wrist. Great value, beautiful and classic look. Sporty and elegant. Nicely crafted and the big box set is super cool. Now a believer in the idea that every collection needs a Speedmaster. Thx to the forum for helping me see the beauty of the Speedmaster.
