A speedmaster pro moon watch is a must in any watch collection! Love mine and will probably wear it today.

Wish it was a clearer pic but you definitely have 60s-90s covered!

That it is. Great looking watch. My Omega Seamaster probably gets the most wear.

I was issued a Rolex Submariner in the '50s in the military when I was a member of the underwater EOD team. Bulova had not come out with their model at the time, so about the only models in the supply dep't was Rolex, Tudor, Omega, and a few Breitlings, best I recall. I stayed on diving status until I retired, so I got to keep it. I sent it off to a Rolex dealer to have it cleaned about every 6 - 7 years, so it still works well. Only thing is, I have to put it on a Versa Watch Winder at night, because at my age, I don't use enough arm movement to keep it wound.
