Most interesting post when regarding speedies I must say. I don’t fancy gold pieces, but I’d be more than happy to wear this proudly. Controversial Opinion: I love Speedmasters, but I do not like this watch. I find the Cartier branding to be extremely tacky. I find most additional dial markings subtract from the aesthetic, even the really subtle ones like Tiffany dials.Made In 1983 38 Years Of Being Awesome Quarantine Edition T-ShirtDespite all that, I fully appreciate the novelty factor of rare dials regardless of aesthetics. What’s the deal with Cartier signing dials? Was it to make it a luxury good when in the 70s perhaps the watch was not considered luxury like it is now?

Brands like Tiffany & Co and Cartier sold these fantastic watches like Rolex and Omega at their boutiques. They wanted their branding on all products sold in their stores, Omega no exception. I’m sure Omega wanted the revenue. So it was a trade off. Case / Bracelet: Excellent 18K YG case that shows some wear from use and is turning a nice rosy patina. Good burgundy bezel insert shows some chipping from use.

Watch is #50 out of only 1014 ever made. This gold limited run of speedmasters were made to commemorate the Apollo XI Moon Landing.

Excellent 1116/575 18k gold bracelet with 23 links and matching end links. Clasp has some high scratches from use. I am very interested in this watch. My Uncle has two exactly the same but with a black bezel and one of them has a crocodile leather strap instead of the gold bracelet. All I know is that they were made in 60s/70s and that the crocodile strap is number 81 of 100, and the gold bracelet one is 156 of 250.

Back in the 90s I could have bought that watch for $3500. That eould have been a good investment except I didnt have the money at the time
