The two greatest women in my life got me a 30th bday watch

... and what a watch it is

Image

Hi Lords! This past year has been perhaps the busiest period of my entire life. My free time is at an absolute minimum, and I’ve been working my ass off to take care of my family. My lovely wife and mother teamed up to get me an unforgettable 30th birthday present and I was absolutely moved beyond words.

The Speedmaster Pro needs no introduction, it’s just a watch I never got around to purchasing for myself. But I couldn’t have dreamed of a better way to acquire one. A lifelong space geek, the two of them knew this watch was the one to get me and they couldn’t have done a better job. Surprised isn’t the word.

In person, the Speedy Pro is even better than I would have anticipated. The dimensions are perfect and the watch is just big enough to have some presence on the wrist, but small enough to remain classy.

I’m a very lucky man. :3

Wow! That's awesome. A great "watch for life"
Now make a note to remember Moms Birthday and your anniversary or you'll be in the deepest of poop.

Of all the watches I've worn, the Speedy seems to be the most comfortable on the wrist of all..w/b interested in hearing what you think...

Outstanding gift. I treasure the harry potter watch Carol gave me almost 15 years ago. You should do the same imho.
