Ask any serious watch collector and they will generally include the Speedmaster on their list of all-time favorite watches for a number of reasons. For the truly obsessed, the Speedmaster Professional model to collect is the calibre321 from 1967 –the exact model worn during the Apollo 11 mission. However, the immediate successor to this model is what we’re talking about here, and they began production in 1968. Visually, the321 and861 calibres are nearly identical, so unless you get obsessive you’d be hard pressed to tell them apart.

In the next lines, I will restrict just to Cartier, since that’s the brand I’ve been following for a long time. Some models have see-thru backs, so the movement can be inspected on the spot and they were all individually numbered.

This is what we have here. In the 1960s Cartier decided to spread the love (for strategic reasons, obviously) and sell a few out of house brands, IWC was one of them. Many of you are thinking, “Hey, aren’t IWC and Cartier owned by the same company anyways?” and yes they are, today. But the Richemont group even form until 1988 and they didn’t acquire IWC until the year 2000, so at the time this watch was sold, they were in no way connected.

Not every jewelry store has master jewelry designers capable of turning a customer’s dream into a customized piece of keepsake reality. But ever since C.J.
