First privately owned, but not the first on the moon.
Buzz Aldrin's Speedmaster was the first.

Learned a little history today. I wonder why Bulova didn't capitalize on this early on...

If I'm not too terribly mistaken, three watch manufacturers were looked at for the chronograph requirement; Omega, Rolex, and Bulova. Omega won out, but all the on-board clocks and time-keeping mechanisms on the Command Module and Lunar Module used Bulova Accutron Movements. :D
