    I have no problem with the Sub history being attatched to a fictional character or event. There was never a misconception or façade that he was real. I rather enjoy the seamaster line being associated with Bond! Now if they can only figure their .... out and make another good movie.

    P.S. If anyone hasn't seen the video of Buzz Aldren making faces behind trump when hes giving a speech about his commitment to space exploration and NASA, I highly recommend it for a few laughs.

    You are entitled to your opinion. I love my speedy regardless, but love t way more because of the moon connection. Sad that you can't experience the same emotional/romantic/proud feeling I get every time you look at one. Yay 'Merica!!!!!

    I wish I could take part of the connection you have. The truth is, I don't know 100% if they were faked. But I can't say for certain they were 100% real. Theres enough misinformation about tom-foolery out there that I have overall concerns about the validity. I'm not smart enough to know the science behind sending a rocket to the moon or back so please no one take my word for it.

    I heard that Stanley Kubrick was such a perfectionist when he was hired to fake the Moon landing that they had to shoot it on location.

    Well, do you like the speedy aside from it being the moonwatch? Or is it's status as the moonwatch what has drawn you in. If you like it, and it's look get it. If you only want it because its the moonwatch, I bet you wouldn't keep it anyway. It will lose the appeal eventually.

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?
    You, Sir, have just crafted possibly my favourite post ever on this august forum. I have yanked my Harry Potter watch from my wrist and tossed it in the rubbish bin in sympathy.

    The video in the link is worth 13 minutes of your time.
