That is a heck of a prized possession!… Yeah, the early Carrera that I had was white on white. I had gotten one of the CS3111s, the ’64 reissue that they started making in the ’90s, and loved it so much that I ended up tracking down an original. Sounds like I got it at the right time because it was pretty reasonably priced. A panda would be gorgeous though. My new Hamilton that I have now is a panda and the ’69 Hamilton that I had was too, but those are the only panda dials I’ve ever had.
It is crazy where these watches have gone in the last 20 years. I got that Speedmaster for under $1,500. At the time most people focused on the “moon watch” and ignored the cal 321 that actually went to the moon. Now things have changed and they are worth 10x what I paid.
