    I think the moon landing happened but it may not have happened ;) The watch itself is a masterpiece and a thing of beauty. Elegant yet posh!

    That reminds me of the time Chewie Reverse-Engineered the Falcon and facilitated Morpheus and Tank in constructing the Nebuchadnezzar.

    Wookies are clever and can be rather moody, but they're full of guile (and great Co-Pilots, too).

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?
    Can't tell if serious....seems unlikely anyone would actually believe this so I am going to go with trolling and ignore this post. Oops did I say that out loud? GMAFB

    And I just happened to watch "The Right Stuff" for the umpteenth time tonight, while wearing my Speedmaster.

    I'm curious...have you ever toured the Cape? Seen a launch in person? Seen a Saturn 5 rocket up close? If not, then you should. Fantastic!!!

    Saw a few Cape Kennedy/Canaveral launches from a few miles away over the years on the water offshore. The launch of any rocket is a life event, never to be forgotten.

    I'll bump this one last time. This thread has been like watching a train wreck, just can't take my eyes off of it even though it's tragic! Almost 200 posts! Most don't know that Capricorn One (1977) - IMDb was based on the faked moon landing and shows how it could happen






    Just kidding. I won't be back in this one :)
