    Why thank you. Very kind of you to say so. Am just hoping for a mere slice of the cake before kids devour:)

    Having to try and play catch up on paperwork on a Saturday...

    ...and then again on a Saturday! I believe the background pics my MAs stuck on my office wall sums up my attitude quite nicely.

    Hi Joe, hope you have a Great Birthday!! I have a Noob question, what makes the 105.012 rare or different ? I know I can use google, but I like hearing from owners. Beautiful Speedy BTW.

    Switch to this (for light yard work), in fading light:

    That my friend is a great question.
    First of a line of Speedmaster Professionals I believe.
    As I understand it, it was born out of the 105.002 coming to an end. Then lines split into the 105.003 and 105.012. The 105.012 carried a new case design that protected the pushers and crown. So important for that reason.
    But more importantly it relates to the Apollo 11 Mission. (Goggle Armstrong and Collins):) Lunar Landing.

    My 27-year old Date Just was due for "freshening". So today was the day. This was the fourth conditioning I've done over those years. I don't wear it much, but rather than to put it back into service, not knowing the condition of the lubricant, I decided it would be a good idea. It was in good shape but it's better now.

    The air bubbles are pretty common. I could send it to Sinn and have it removed, but it doesn't bother me. I don't notice it at all when I wear the watch, so I don't feel the need to send it to Germany to have the bubble removed. I am also putting it up for sale, so the bubble decision will be up to the new buyer. Enjoying it for a few more days as I expect it will sell before long.
