NASA? Moonlanding? Moonwatch? No. Not at all. It was all about car racing. And the A.C.P. is the truest to this initial intention for the Speedmaster.

The Rolex that wasn’t tough enough for the Moon 🌚 🌝

Sad to see this one go..

But it was time. I\'ve had this one for 15 years. I thought it was going to be one of those pieces that I\'d never sell. It is a moonwatch after all. Halfway through the ownership phase, I noticed that I wasn\'t wearing it as much. But I never really thou
