Default A very interesting moon watch...

A little late finding out about this one. But when I saw it, I knew I had to share it. Not as good as Atomic Tom with the computer but the link below should get you there.

You seem pretty fantastic with the computer honestly Forza !

I'm no better to tell the truth.

Man oh man, are these neat? Or what?! ..We see a lot of watches that
look alike, or have similar design ideas. But these are really refreshing, and
fun. Then on top of that pay tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing?!
Just is too good !!

Actually can't get enough of whole design, but then lume too. Even that rotor
is out of this world. Thanks so so much for discovering these for us Forza !

Unbelievably cool !!!

Tom, I really can't believe that you were the only one that clicked on the link. Or had anything to say. This watch is by far the best moon watch that has come out during the 50th anniversary craze. The Omega obviously trumps it. But none of us will ever get our hands on one of those unless we stole it. IMO, this watch is affordable and amazing. With the construction cues from the space station, to the rotating planet system. But most of all the absolute killer job they did on the stars and lume make this piece incredible to look at. I love the Roman numeral hour numbers in the middle circle of the Cupola. Not the greatest movement choices in the world. But IMO, this is one watch that is out of this world.

Moonphases are cool. Mine is an Invicta with a Ronda movement. It is incredibly accurate for the $64.95 I paid for it. It is also a master calendar. Dial is a little bright, but you get used to it, Excuse the stock photo. I'm way behind taking pics of my newer watches now that I'm working again.

It looks interesting, but not sure it’s for me yet.

The link wouldn't work for me. Got a 404.

You know what's so nice Forza?! Is all of the thought they put into
them really ! It actually does feel like a space station, or cool ship
to tell the truth. But at the same time is this fantastic watch. Where
you appreciate all of the watch-like features, but also ingenious ways
they go about implementing them. I mean have you ever seen a lume
shot like this watch is evidently capable of?! ..It's just one example of
how the watches meld the space theme with watches perfectly, and do
it in a very unique way. I mean it's like you are staring out into space
while telling the time ! It's something to see Forza. Thanks once again !!!

Well Tom, I had to do it... Went to see what they had left in the pre-order bin. And a coupon appeared for $150 discount if I entered NASA when ordering. Sooooooooooo… I did. The Trappist-1 Automatic ISS edition is on its way. To say I'm excited would be an understatement. 1 of 1969. Here's a taste.

It's a creative piece to be sure. Very interesting to look at, and appears from what we can see to be well made.

Thanks for the vid Enrico. One of these days I'll figure this Windows 10 out... Lots of great stuff on that site. I can't believe they raised over 5 million dollars, a kickstarter record for this watch.

Is this happening through your phone or on your desktop? ... or both.

According to the site, they were not supposed to start shipping until December at the earliest. I just got an email that says they're packing it up and will send shipping info soon. A very pleasant surprise.
