It was many years before I owned by own Speedmaster. I have owned, worn and sold several , but my favourite is a 1968 model identical to that worn by the Apollo astronauts. As with other aspects of my taste in clothes and possessions (see for example my Nigel Cabourn Tenzing jacket), the history and tradition represented by an object plays a major part in my choosing it. The Speedmaster is a lovely watch and is a genuine tool watch - robust and beautifully made.
