From the mid-1950s to the 1970s, American watchmaker Bulova worked in organization with NASA to give timekeeping instruments, incorporating clocks outfitted with the brand’s unmistakable Accutron tuning-fork innovation. One of the organization’s most verifiably critical commitments to the space program was a chronograph wristwatch, worn on the moon by Colonel Dave Scott, leader of the Apollo 15 mission on August 2, 1971 — 50 years prior today. For the “brilliant commemoration” of this achievement, Bulova has given a unique release of that watch with extraordinary gold subtleties.

Bulova 50th Anniversary Lunar Pilot Limited Edition

The 50th Anniversary Lunar Pilot Limited Edition, similar to the steel-cased release that went before it in 2016, intently imitates the first model worn on the Apollo 15 mission, which was explicitly designed for space travel, with a chronograph to follow the term of oxygen supplies, battery power, and other life-supporting locally available frameworks, and a case plan that withstood changes in pressure, temperatures, air conditions, and gravity. On this model, the 45-mm case is made of grade 5 titanium with gold-conditioned crown and pushers; the gold tones are repeated on the tricompax dial, improving the focal seconds hand, the subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, and the exemplary Bulova logo.

The watch’s gold-conditioned subtleties incorporate the chrono pushers and crown.

Behind a gold-restrained screw caseback engraved with a memorial help engraved picture of a space explorer on the lunar surface, the case houses Bulova’s restrictive UHF (ultra high recurrence) quartz type, beating at 262 Hz, which the brand says gives the watch an amazingly serious level of timekeeping precision, losing only seconds out of each year, and furthermore drives a ceaseless range seconds hand for the stopwatch work, an element uncommon in quartz chronograph watches. The watch has an AR covering on its blue sapphire gem and comes mounted on a graceful, dim calfskin NATO-style tie.

The engraved caseback highlights the watch’s restricted release number.

Restricted to 5,000 pieces, each bundled alongside an exceptional storybook and a dedicatory NASA coin, the Bulova 50th Anniversary Lunar Pilot Limited Edition is estimated at $995.
