** Dons flak jacket**I understand that by asking this question, I'll probably be branded a heretic, a lunatic or worse...So here goes. Sitting aside the whole first watch on the moon and the historical connection to NASA, what makes the Speedmaster so special? Now having been interested in watches since I got my first manual wind Timex in the Second grade, I understand what makes a particular watch appealing is total subjective; and individualized.
But, I've read numerous posts where people write about the Speedmaster in almost reverant tones, extolling its virtues while spreading the gospel of the Speedie; and frankly, I don't get it? Perhaps some of the cult members...oops...Speedie enthusists can weigh in and educate me?
Waiting with baited breath.
