Meteorite Wristwatch to Celebrate Anniversary of Apollo-Soyuz Test Project

Share

The 35th anniversary of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project mission is commemorated by a unique wristwatch that boats the dial produced from a true piece of meteorite.

The dial of the Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo-Soyuz "35th Anniversary" chronograph is actually a single piece cut from a meteorite that crossed the Earth's atmosphere and survived, having then reached the terrestrial surface.

The unusual structure of the meteorite was formed under very high temperature when it entered our planet's atmosphere, followed by cooling.

The unique timepiece will be available in a limited number of 1975 pieces.
