    Speedmaster Alaska Project in the real world

    Spotted this while watching bike review. The Guy is David Alexander who works for Specialized.

    Not sure I have ever seen one being worn in the protective shell before, very cool but but not sure I could carry it off.

    Video here is you want to watch it

    Cheers,

    Not sure he carries it off to be honest...good spot. I remember when these came out in about 2008...it was before watch prices went sky high for both new and secondhand. I bet these are a small fortune today!

    Does look a bit silly to be honest, but £10k worth of watch these days for those looking to buy.

    On the footie last night Ian Wright was wearing a Rolex Milgauss GV Z Blue, which looked very blingy under the studio lights.

    Bless him, he looks daft wearing that. I want to like it for being edgy and different.... but it just doesn’t work.

    You won’t see the next video where he whacks it on the bike frame.

    Never liked it back then and still do not like it.

    I spotted that too. I've got the black dialled GV but it doesn't pop like the blue dial.

    I like the watch and considered one before prices when mad, but even I decided I'd look like an idiot wearing it in the case and without it it's just an overpriced Speedmaster LE.

    That must be for a bet, or at the very least just so he can post in a WWUW thread.
