Description

The ref. BA 145.022 Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Apollo XI 1969 is the very first limited edition Speedmaster ever - quite the trend setter. It has a yellow gold case and bracelet; the bezel inlay is burgundy. The first 32 models were engraved with the names of their recipients and the text 'to mark man's conquest of space with time, through time, on time'. Numbers 33 onwards do not feature this engraving.
