INNOVATION

To make this watch even rarer, the watchmaker offers the unique opportunity to have each watch of the "LUNAR 1969" collection sent to the edge of space, where it will come into direct contact with an environment of -60° C and with a pressure close to 0.

The watch will then be recovered by a company that specializes in the field, and delivered to the acquirer's doorstep in mint condition, together with a certificate authenticating the altitude of the flight.

STANDARD FLIGHT

Standard flight includes an ascent in the stratosphere at an altitude of more than 30km in extreme conditions with temperatures down to -60 ° C and a pressure approaching absolute vacuum.

A certificate signed by the director of the company sent into space, responsible for the flight, will be provided for each watch that was on board the cargo.

PREMIUM FLIGHT

This premium option allows a standard flight with an onboard camera filming the ascent from the ground up to an altitude of over 30km.

A video montage of 2-3 minutes will be delivered within 4 weeks after this climb. The source file of more than 2 hours of flight can be returned to you on request. You will find a video montage of the first ascent below.

CERTIFICATES

A certificate proving the authenticity of the fragment lunar meteorite will be delivered with the watch as well as the possibility to take knowledge of the various components of the lunar rock through an official website "The meteorological society".

In the event of a stratospheric flight, Col&MacArthur will provide a document certifying the takeoff and the height of the flight. This certificate will be sent with the box.

Last but not least, the mention "SENT INTO NEAR SPACE" followed by the date of the flight will be engraved on the backcover of the watch.

HISTORICAL CONTEXT

Since its creation in July 1958, NASA has been very successful. The first great success was the Apollo program launched in 1961 and completed in 1975.

Apollo 7 was the first American manned mission sending a team of 3 men into space. The climax of the program was of course the Apollo 11 mission with Man’s first step on the moon by Neil A. Armstrong.

In addition to the desire to demonstrate the superiority of the United States over the Soviet Union, the Apollo programme aimed to send a man to the moon, objectives set by former President John F. Kennedy in 1961.

Michael Collins, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., better known as Buzz Aldrin and Neil A. Armstrong took off on July 16, 1969 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to land on the Moon on July 20, 1969. Thus, marking the history of Humanity.

THE FIRST STEP

1h30 after the landing, Neil Armstrong leaves the lunar module and writes a piece of history by taking his first step on the surface of the Moon, July 20, 1969 at 21:56 (UTC).

He accompanies these first steps of a man on the Moon with the famous phrase “A small step for man, a giant leap for humanity”.

Given the absence of atmosphere on the Moon, the trace of Armstrong’s first step, represented on the back of the watch should remain visible for several millennia.

APOLLO 11

The date of landing, 20 July 1969, is written on the case at 21:56, time of the first step on the Moon. The now famous plain of Basalt where the lunar module Apollo XI has landed called «Mare Tranquillitatis» is for its part mentioned at noon.

The Apollo 11 crew only stayed on the surface of the Moon for 21 hours and 36 minutes before returning to Earth to land uneventfully in the Pacific Ocean.

THE APOLLO PROGRAM

The geographical coordinates of the various Apollo rockets are filled in with the corresponding mission numbers on the edge of the dial. The bright dot on the watch dial indicates the location of the first step.

THE CREW

Originally from Ohio, Neil A. Armstrong (pictured left) was a test pilot, United States Navy airman, teacher and astronaut.

It is by distinguishing himself by his coolness during his US Navy missions as well as during the rescue of the Gemini 8 mission that Armstrong gained his seat within Apollo XI.

Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. aka Buzz Aldrin (right), being the pilot of the lunar module of Apollo XI, is the one who brought and accompanied Neil Armstrong to the surface of the Moon.

Meanwhile, Michael Collins (in the middle), remained within the command and service module in the orbit of the Moon.
