I have had quite a few vintage ones
kept 2 for different reasons
a 145.012-67 as it's an iconic moon watch, probably the model first worn but since it came up missing no one really knows, but NASA said Aldrin was issued a 145.012 which is the 67 model
102.002-62 with a very rare adjusted movement because it's very rare and unique
my son wears the 67
that said all the hesalite models make me warm
nice posts guys
Easy to see why..
My Racing 44 is my favorite Speedy.
I use the chrono to time my commute to work.
Being a Co-ax Master Chronometer, I get +1.5 s/d and a nice 60h power reserve. The chrono action is accurate and I can let it run with no added wear (column wheel, vertical clutch).
I love the twin register subdials layout with two hands on the 3 o'clock one. The date at 6 is a useful addition. The eggshell dial is superb. The ceramic bezel and its white enamel numbers and markers add a touch of luxury, so do the white gold applied markers on the dial itself.
There's a fair amount of decoration on the movement with nice open column wheel and balance wheel to see them in action.
Overall a superb piece to me.
The "Ed White" 105.003. I like the "smaller" case with no crown guards and straight lugs, hesalite crystal, and the 321 caliber.
Have to be Ultraman.
