    Exclamation Speedmaster Article by Chuck Maddox (iW magazine Dec. 2007)

    Dear members of the WUS community,
    It gives us great honor to host this article written by the late Chuck Maddox for iW magazine. The article appeared in the December 2007 issue, a few months before Chuck’s passing. This is a fantastic article that sums up basic information related to early Speedmasters and should serve as a great reference to all collectors.


    (please find the PDF of the entire article below)

    Chuck was a pillar of the WIS community. He had a great deal of knowledge and passion for watches and was even more passionate about sharing this with anyone who asked. Regardless of who you were, a beginner or veteran collector, Chuck was willing and happy to share his knowledge openly and freely. It is in this vein, that we thought having this article freely accessible to all would serve as a nice tribute to Chuck. We are grateful to Gary Girdvainis, the editor-in-chief of iW magazine and Fine Life Media, who generously provided and granted us permission to post this material.


    This picture of Chuck was taken shortly before his passing. Chuck interviewed Wally Schirra for iW and is seen in this picture with Schirra (Right) and Charlie Duke (Left).

    Outstanding Joe and thanks for posting it.

    FYI - The picture of Chuck is only visible to you since it's in a password protected album.

    That's odd because I can see it, but I don't have access to that photobucket account.

    Great stuff, Joe.

    Unfortunately, I can't see the picture of Chuck, either.

    Best,
