    I'm on my way to watch First Man and while I don't own a Speedie, I do own an Astronaut.

    paul peugeot  1.jpg Received this Paul Peugeot yesterday .
    Speidel band is a bit worse for wear but fits perfectly. I intend to re finish it.
    The watch itself turned out to be in much better condition than the sellers images suggested. No corrosion at all, the case being fully stainless and with no visible scratches. It cleaned up like new.
    The discoloration of the dial is a trick of the light. The stain is not visible under normal lighting and only vaguely visible if a LED light is held close to the crystal. That was a welcome surprise.
    The watch gains about three minutes in 24 hrs, which is not uncommon for a vintage watch that's lain unused for a long time. The regulator is set a bit on the fast side so after its run for a week or so to settle in I have plenty of room for adjustment.

    Movement is a Seiko 66A design, probably licensed. The same movement was used by Westclox and several other brands of the 60's.
    Very comfortable on the wrist. I'm pleased as punch since I paid less than $17 including shipping.
