    I'm trying to be less judgemental these days just for that very reason.

    I do not know whether someone expressed my thoughts earlier in this thread but is it not that the entire premise of fake moon landing is an absurd notion. No lie can be believed by entire comity of nations for nearly 50 years!! It is impossible to hide such a fact...
    the entire thread seems to me is a waste of time.... we should talk only about watches and they are amazing.....

    Not diving into the conspiracy side of the things, why don't you buy the watch just for itself? It's a gorgeous piece.

The watch may even be worth more at that point.

    For that reason, the seamaster line takes the cake and will be my next purchase. At least they are honest about Flemming's James Bond being completely fake.

    Thoughts?

    I read through half of the posts on this thread before realizing this is time I'm never getting back! I don't know what is more ridiculous, the original post, or the fact that some of us felt the need to respond to it. Not knowing if the OP was serious or just trolling, I do feel compelled to comment that thousands of people worked on the space program, and hundreds were in key positions throughout project Apollo. In a world where insiders leak classified information on a daily basis it is ludicrous to believe that so many could have held on to such a secret for so long. The lure of wealth, or some streak of morality would have blown the lid off this "conspiracy" long ago. Oh yeah, the Myth Buster guys debunked the fake lunar landing conspiracy on their show as well. I mean, what else do you want? Now let me get back to reality!

    I know that the Santa Clause is real, and I wait for Santa every year hoping to scare him off my roof so I can replace him and get fat and finally have wrists large enough for normal straps.

    And here you guys are, trying to take that away from me.
