Notes

 Made in 1014 examples between 1969 and 1972 in celebration of Apollo XI. While the first 32 watches were given to personalities including astronauts, this example has a low case number of 162. Recently relaunched in also 1012 pieces this year, the new version features the new caliber 3861 and will be launched in June 2019. The current example was consigned from the original Spanish family and has never been offered on the market before. One of the most collected gold Speedmasters made by the firm.
