Hoping to do likewise for my own son's graduation. Don't know if he will pick a Speedy Pro or not but it's certainly a fantastic choice and a watch that can be worn on virtually any occasion.My parents promised me a watch for my college graduation thus I've been doing research on watches for some time now. I couldn't resist the looks, the manual movement, and the history of the speedmaster pro. Just picked it up from an AD in Kansas City yesterday and I could not be more happy with my choice. I also ordered a black alligator band with deployant clasp to dress it up if need be.
