The Speedmaster is well-known for the legendary stories of moon landing. However, it was originally created for the racing sports.
In 1957, the first Speedmaster was exclusively for racing drivers. The tachymeter bezel became one of the most extraordinary innovations. The precious copy Speedmaster with steel case symbolized the start of the legend journey of the collection.
