The Speedymoon was neither numbered, nor officially limited, but its production remained small, with an estimation of 1’300 examples.
The moon phases and the date complications entailed a modification of the calibre 861, which was renamed 866.
This example, with serial number #46.878.xxx and sold in 1988 in Italy is provided with its original full set. It is in unworn condition, with pieces of its original plastic protections.

Naturally, beyond its professional use for more than sixty years, the Speedmaster, with its incredible history and its timeless design, has appealed to a much wider public throughout the world.
