    The "Little" Moon Watch: The Speedy Reduced

    The Speedy Reduced 3510 is an automatic version of the nearest to the classic Moon Watch with regard to cosmetic similarities. The 3510 is called the "Reduced" due to it's more diminutive 39mm size as opposed to the 42mm Moon Watch. It has the Caliber 3220 47 Jewel automatic chronograph movement which is basically an ETA base with DD chrono module. As such, the base movement is a workhorse movement and preforms very strongly. It has a hesalite crystal, thin profile, 18mm lugs/bracelet and solid case back. It has a pretty nice wrist presence for 39mm and definitely projects the Speedy vibe. The automatic movement is nice vs. the manual wind 861/1861 movement in the Moon Watch for convenience. The polished center links on the bracelet look nice as well. I find the Moon Watch to be a bit long and flat across my wrist and the Speedy Reduced actually is more comfortable as it wraps better due to shorter lugs and smaller link size. The original Speedmasters were 39mm range so this is more true in size to the first models of the Speedmaster from back in 1957. These have not been made for a while and the one I picked up is in really good condition cosmetically and mechanically. I'm actually bonding pretty strongly to this "little" Moon Watch. It tends to get a bad time due to the Caliber 3220 movement, but that is actually unfounded as the movement actually is quite robust and durable. Mine is keeping spot on time and it has never been serviced and the chronograph is crisp and precise. Here are some pictures:

    LITTLE MOON LIGHTS MY FIRE- " it aint the meat it's the motion " like has been said the dial on these is actually bigger than many divers...

    39mm still plenty bigger than the 34mm which was the standard from 1930-1970...

    i have found the vintage sizes free the wrist...like a WIT bro posted...he couldn't hoist the big ones because of injury/arthritis...horological hazard
