A watch that went to the MOON and back

Bulova made space history on August 2, 1971—during the Apollo 15 mission, a moon pilot chronograph, customized for lunar conditions by Bulova engineers, was worn on the moon.

 

The Bulova Wrist Chronograph was Commander Dave R. Scott’s personal timepiece on the 1971 Apollo 15 mission. It was the only personal watch (not owned by the government) that went to the moon.

Just recently, Dave Scott’s personal Bulova chronograph was auctioned and ended up selling for $1.62 million dollars!

Now Bulova makes history again with the special edition Moon Watch, updated with exclusive high performance quartz movement with a frequency of 262 kHz for unparalleled accuracy, continuing a history of precision timing.

Features include super-luminous hands and markers, anti-reflective sapphire glass, tachymeter and calendar all housed in a solid 316L surgical-grade stainless steel case in silver-tone with black dial.

The Dave Scott Bulova Re-Edition comes with two interchangeable straps, a textured black leather strap as well as a loop-and-hook, nylon NASA-style strap similar to the one found on Scott’s personal watch with nubuck leather patch that commemorates the date of mission (DOM) as 08021971.  A Gift-box presentation includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

Bulova made this one-off for lunar use when Scott became the seventh man to walk on the moon, and the first to drive the lunar rover.

Come see the new Bulova Space Watch re-edition in person.  It’s so awesome!

Seiko Kinetic Perpetual…possibly the last watch you’ll ever need to buy

seiko snp065

Why?

1) Beauty = a great looking watch
2) Sapphire crystal = does not scratch, unless done so by sapphires or diamonds
3) Kinetic drive = never worry about a battery again
4) Perpetual =  once set, the calendar automatically adjusts for odd and even months including February of leap years up to February 28, 2100
5) It’s a Seiko!

Seiko has been making watches for over 130 years. They are true “manufacture,” making all its own components and leaders in technology. Others have tried, but only Seiko has mastered the challenge of generating electricity from the kinetic movement of the wearer’s wrist. To generate that electricity, Seiko had to create a rotor that could spin 1000,000 rpm, or 5 times faster than a Formula One engine! To do that, Seiko invented a way to suspend the rotor with magnetic levitation, so that it would rotate friction-free.

The Le Grand Sport collection makes a statement on any wrist with both elegant style and superior function. Kinetic, Alarm chronographs and everyday classic timepieces create a collection ideal for the stylish man.

The Gold Market Jewelers is an Authorized Seiko Dealer.

Providing excellent and friendly service to customers from Longmont, Firestone, Mead, Berthoud, Lyons, Loveland, Estes Park, Niwot and Boulder.

 

 

All you need is Light…

A Solar Watch is a watch which moves by converting light energy into electronic energy.

Light energy received by a solar cell (solar cell unit under the dial) is converted into electronic energy. The energy is stored in the rechargeable battery and is used to move the watch.

seiko_solar light energy

Unlike a disposable battery such as dry battery and button battery, a rechargeable battery is an eco-friendly battery. It can be used for a long period of time by recharging and discharging the energy repeatedly.

Environment Suited for Recharging

In order to recharge a solar watch, it is necessary to expose it to light.

Since room light is weaker compared to sunlight, it takes a longer time to recharge the watch. Therefore, when recharging, please place the watch by a window and expose it to sunlight with the dial facing the sun.

When recharging the watch, make sure that the watch is not heated to a high temperature.

Environment not Suited for Recharging

A solar watch cannot be recharged in the dark. Under the following situations, the energy is likely to run out, resulting in stoppage of the watch.

1. The watch is concealed under a sleeve.
2. The watch is used or stored under conditions where it cannot be exposed to light for a long time.

The watch cannot recharge enough energy from wearing it on the wrist. Make sure to place it by a window and expose it to sunlight when not wearing it.
