You all know the watch, and it is starting to become a bit of a cult classic!
In 1971 Captain Dave Scott, on the Apollo 15 mission, found his NASA issued Omega Speedmaster had popped of its crystal. So, he threw on his personal (and unauthorized) Bulova chronograph and continued on with the mission. This watch, which ultimately sold for 1.6 million dollars at auction, is the only privately owned watch ever worn on the moon.
So, Bulova released a re-edition of this famous watch, offered here today. It has nearly the same look as Captain Scott's prototype watch, including the beautiful elongated pushers that are slotted into the full mid-case, and now adds a subtle date indication at 4 o'clock. Inside is their proprietary ultra-high frequency quartz chronograph movement. This movement, according to Bulova, allows for accuracy that is good to just seconds per year, and because of its high frequency, provides the smooth sweeping chronographs seconds hand that we are accustomed to with mechanical watches.
45mm case, 13.5mm thick.
Case is in very nice condition as you can see by the pics.
Leather strap shows some wear and is missing the floating keeper, but has tons of life left.
Velcro strap is in excellent condition.
Nothing but typical signs of use from wearing in an office environment.
I'll call it conservatively 90%.
$275 delivered in US and I'll even cover the Paypal fees!
