Cool!

The Omega Speedmaster is the original "moon watch", but those were issued by NASA, and therefore property of the US Government. Issued Omega watches have been pulled from auctions because of this fact.

The original Bulova watch worn by Dave Scott was auctioned for like 1.3 million back in 2015. It was his own personal watch, not a NASA issued one. Which is why the owner was able to auction it.

Here's a pic of it (i like the old logo font)...

looking for a Breitling B13047 with a black face if anyone has and looking to work out a deal!

thanks


I have a Heritage 46 Super Ocean Chrono I'm willing to part with. Three bands including the ss mesh, black face.


Bueller. Will trade for art, especially nice art. $6K MSRP, would love to move it to another home. Dig the watch, just have too damn many so cleaning out the stock before a long distance move.

I'm also selling a Ducati Sport Classic 1000S from 2009. It actually matches the watch :lol: It's almost spring you know :clap:

I backed this, just because it seemed interesting. Not sure if I'll pull out of it though (lol).

Very nice Sinn. I didn't know they made B&R. I love the B&R WWI copy watches they have out.

Man...I always see this thread and get jealous. :lol: I bought myself a sweet Citizen Eco-Drive today. Not even worth posting a picture of it. Some day I will have an elite watch.

I have a black Night Hawk the fiancee bought me a couple years ago. Wanted an upgrade and Macy's had 20% all Citizen watches, plus 25% off Friends and Family. Ended up getting this:

I love it. Fits my wrist perfectly and looks really classy.

Are the run quantities of any of these watches known?
Fancy watches are cool, but I don't want something "rare" if a hundred or more other people can have it too...
