WATCH OUT

A celebrated timepiece perfect for galaxy quests

So you’ve shelled out for a seat on a shuttle bound for space. You’ve packed the requisite moon boots and Mr. Noodle, but what about keeping track of time? Isn’t that especially important when you’re light years away from home? The trusty watch artisans at OMEGA certainly think so–they’re launched a limited edition Speedmaster Apollo Soyuz Moonwatch that is perfect for galaxy quests. Beyond just looking handsome, the watch is the only model used in space by US astronauts. Turns out that this durable timepiece commemorates the 35th anniversary of General Tom Stafford’s crew shaking hands with their Russian rivals during the Cold War. Under such circumstances, we imagine time being of the essence.
