    The flagship of my collection. A 50 year old all original 1971 Speedy Pro step dial on an 1175/640 flat link bracelet with a 2/71 stamp. Whenever I put this watch on it reminds me of sitting in my elementary school classroom and watching the Apollo Saturn V rockets lift off with running commentary from Walter Cronkite. On a black and white TV, no less! I didn’t appreciate it then, but I was watching history being made. How petty and divisive the US is now compared to that era. Back then, achieving superiority over the Russians in the space race was a matter of national pride that unified us all in a common goal.

    Today we celebrate Independence Day in the United States, so I decided to wear a watch that is actually freedom-themed. The Orion "Berlin '89" commemorates the knock-down of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, leading to the eventual dissolution of the Soviet Union and the return of the commercial watchmaking industry to the town of Glashutte. I don't wear this watch very often -- I find the crystal to be extremely reflective and thus can't see the dial very well, in almost any circumstance.

    But I found something else recently, that inspired me to wear this watch today: an old passport from my Wanderjahre in the late 1970s/early 1980s. And in the passport was evidence of my visit to Communist East Germany in 1981, as a guest of the West German government. How that came about is a long story, but one notable incident was being detained briefly by the East German Secret Police (two guys literally wearing fedora hats and trenchcoats); I avoided being put in an East German jail by paying a fine directly to the policemen -- in West German currency of course. For the record, my "crime" was jaywalking, done within sight of Checkpoint Charlie as I was leaving East Berlin.
