So yes, Speedmaster Professionals are to this day still being worn in outer space, and for EVA – just like they were back in, you know, The Day. And that, friends, in this here-today-gone-tomorrow world, is kind of a wonderful thing.

Update: According to the book, Moonwatch Only, as of the Space Shuttle era, the Speedmaster was sewn directly onto the suit gauntlet, and was protected by a flap –which would explain why they’re much harder to spot in EVA shots from the Shuttle era onwards.
