TAG Heuer SpaceX Watch - Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer is making a special edition watch to commemorate 50 years since the first time a swiss watch flew in space (1962). The special edition watch features images of both the SpaceX Dragon and the NASA Apollo spacecraft on the back and the front face of the watch. Unfortunately for us pedestrian folks, only 2012 of them will be made with a suggested retail price of $5,800 (ouch …), but it’s cool nonetheless. Lots more high-rez pictures at the Perpetuelle website.
… the new TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 “SpaceX”, a limited edition chronograph. This stellar looking timepiece marks the 50th anniversary of TAG Heuer (originally Heuer) being the first Swiss timepiece to be worn in space. That being the above right, a modified Heuer 2915A stopwatch, worn by astronaut John Glenn in 1962. Top to bottom, inside and out, this is one awesome TAG Heuer with a great story around it.
