White dial Speedmasters are somehow very special: the Speedy Pro ref. ST345.0818 "Italy Limited Edition" from 1997

. . . also originally destined for Italy.

There's no shortage of Speedmaster rarities, that's for sure!


PS - the pictured A/S was a Phillips auction piece from ~ six years ago.

Speedmaster heaven 😎

That is by far my favorite Speedy

I have a slightly earlier, also Italian, LE in the Liberace. Not everyone's cup of tea but I love it!

One more from the files, and my favorite production Speedy to boot . . .

. . . regardless of dial color . . .

. . . the 25th anniversary Apollo 11 chronometers cased in white gold.  And to think I could've picked one up way back when for four figures, with the white gold bracelet.
