Actually MIT worked closely with the Waltham Watch Company to build MIT's Inertial Navigation System that would be used to navigate the Apollo spacecraft to the moon...

That is really something Accutronitis, and yet another terrific lesson ! 🙂
Am trying to remember if I had actually heard this before, and I don't
think I did. It's kind of embarassing to admit, but this is actually totally
new news to me. 😊 Wow, and how many years later is it?!

We always knew about Omega, and it's history with this. But hearing
about Waltham's connection to space travel is amazing ! Holy cow,
and what an important role is was too ! 😯 Thanks for putting this up !!!
