  • ONE OWNER - Mr Bill Smith was a sea going Engineer with Cunard Brocklebank then Denholms of Glasgow in the late 1960s - working between Jeddah and Rasta Tanura. According Mr Smith's widow, Bill did one particular job on a ship/yacht for a Saudi Prince, and the story goes..:

    mending/fixing a tap or plumbing, the Sheikh came to Bill with a wallet of watches for him to choose from.. Bill chose the "Moon watch" and always called it that but I can't recollect him wearing it . It has been lying in a drawer with all his other ones for 50 or so years. I don't suppose he thought of the value but it was always his story to tell and he had a few of those....

    So here we have a one owner Speedmaster, gifted to an Engineer from a Saudi Prince. Worn sparingly, the condition is superlative - there is a small ding to the (DON) bezel at 10 o'clock, and a small scuff on the lower right twisted lug. 

    The dial has remained dark and lustrous, the original hands match the markers.

    Correct and original 1039 Flatlink bracelet, stamped 3 70 - which correlate to the movement serial and subsequent date
