    It was yellow when owned by Kroymans and before that. Who painted it Avorio?

    I wasn't able to find out what this car is... Not sure what model, 410S maybe? definitely a Scaglietti body, pic taken in the US in the late 50's... Ferrari Sports Spider 1950s S.jpg

    Thanks! It did change body after 1955 so that's why I could not find it!

    Cool poster! I have that watch in my collection, among many others. The same model with the golden dial has Nasa history. it was taken to space as a private watch of astronaut Col.Pogue. Officially he had to wear the Omega Speedmaster "Moonwatch".

    These cost £70 in the UK in 1974. I think the Speedmaster was about £110. Do Seiko in Japan service these now?

    I think there is no need for service in Japan. Every watchmaker can do it. Today These watches trade between 300,-- und 600,-- Euros depending on condition and originality. An early Speedmaster is about ten times the price.
    Same thing like vintage Ferrari. Telling old stories and selling history makes the difference.

    Service of the vintage Omega watches used to be so terrible that I sold my Speedmaster collection. When my Speedmaster 9300 is due a service I'll probably sell it. I sent in a new Seamaster for regulation recently and it came back with a scratched caseback so it doesn't look like things have improved.
