I once spent a day with the late sports car racer Alain De Cadenet. And at lunch, he took a Speedmaster off his wrist and handed it to me. He went on to tell me a crazy story about the watch, friendship, racing, and a lifelong bond. After he finished telling the story I remarked, “And it’s got a double-signed dial!” He took the watch back, put on his glasses, looked at it, and said, “well I suppose it does.” He bought it from Meister, a department store in Germany, and the Meister retailer signature appeared right below “professional” at 12 o’clock. The story of de Cadenet’s watch was incredible, and it turns out Revolution once covered itbut the fact that it wasn’t a “normal” Speedy and instead a Meister-signed version always stuck with me.
