When you come back from a nice extended break what could be better than finding this wonderful Speedmaster waiting for you in your email inbox. A wonderful watch that has ended up in the perfect persons hands. A big thanks to Bob for sharing this great story and of course the great pictures!
I tried to get some close ups of the watch face and bracelet but my camera doesnt have a macro ability This is the original boxes and booklets. I’ll try to send some good pics of the watch later.The story of how the watch was stored for so long is interesting, the lady that I bought the watch from is in her mid fourties, It was her father’s watch, he passed away in the early 70’s his wife just passed away this year(2005) . The watch sat in a safe deposit box since her husband passed away in the early 70’s. When she died her daughter became executer of her estate when the deposit box was opened there sat this watch,neither she or her siblings wanted to keep it ,so it was put up for sale ,I saw the ad,wanted it and bought it.It was only when I took it to a jeweler that I realized the serial number was really from 1970.And after talking to you realized the bracelet was original also.It’s a beautiful watch and I’m proud to own it.I’ve always wanted another Speedmaster Professional (Moon) watch ever since I sold the very first year modle,which I bought just weeks after it’s introduction in1969.I guess that sometimes it takes a while for your dreams to come true.
