Mission Commander David Scott wore a Bulova chronograph on his wrist while driving the Lunar Rover on the outside of the Moon on August 2 1971. That watch sold at closeout in 2015 for $1.6m USD.
To stamp the event, Bulova has made the 50th Anniversary Lunar Pilot Limited Edition modifying the plan of the first chronograph worn by Scott. Presently contained in a 45mm matte-finish, grade-5 titanium case with gold-tone accents and pushers, the chronograph utilizes an exclusive, high-recurrence quartz development that vibrates at 262kHz rather than the more normal 32kHz.
Bulova utilizes a period-right logo and dial design, while settling on a sapphire gem glass with blue enemy of intelligent covering. The watch is provided on a dim cowhide NATO-style tie and is water impervious to 50m.
In other watch news, criminal couple named the Rolex Rippers focus on the costly watches of old UK golf players. Every one of the 5,000 watches are exclusively numbered on the caseback as a component of a lunar alleviation plan and are given a book and memorial coin. The 50th Anniversary Lunar Pilot watch is accessible now through Bulova, estimated $1,100 USD (£795).
