In a celestial marriage of horology and history, watch connoisseurs are set to be captivated by Col&MacArthur’s latest addition to their INTERSTELLAR collection, the LUNAR1,622. This NASA-endorsed titanium watch, infused with bona fide moon dust harvested from a meteorite, pays tribute to the awe-inspiring Apollo 11 lunar landing and humanity’s inaugural footsteps on the lunar surface. Offering a choice between steel and titanium compositions, this timepiece seamlessly integrates powdered meteorite fragments within its core. From its inception, the LUNAR1,622 boasts a steel and titanium exoskeleton sheathed in sapphire glass, which opens a portal to an intricate lunar landscape, with moon dust particles dancing in tandem with the wearer’s every move.
Turn the watch over, and an official NASA insignia graces the rear, sealing its cosmic credentials and entwining its legacy with the annals of lunar exploration. Etched along the watch’s flank, a poignant excerpt from Neil Armstrong echoes the triumph of human achievement, while the GPS coordinates of the Apollo 11 landing site and the historic lunar landing date further enrich the narrative. For those who prefer to forgo the tangible moon dust presence at 3 o’clock, an alternative steel variant mirrors Neil Armstrong’s iconic lunar bootprint. Roman numerals replace conventional digits to indicate time, accompanied by a series of white lines that meticulously track minutes.
Meteorite Moon Dust: A Lunar Legacy Authenticated
The meteorite moon dust, a celestial relic that lends the LUNAR1,622 its otherworldly aura, hails from a Lunar meteorite unearthed in Northwest Africa in 2017, christened with the moniker NWA11515. MSG Meteorites, a distinguished British firm specializing in certified cosmic specimens, vouched for the moon dust’s authenticity and supplied it to Col&MacArthur. Owners of the LUNAR1,622 will be bestowed with a certificate verifying the meteorite’s provenance and a link to a comprehensive laboratory analysis shedding light on this extraterrestrial treasure trove.
Yet, the LUNAR1,622 is not just a mere relic; it embodies cutting-edge technology. NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality is woven into the fabric of these NASA-approved steel and titanium timepieces. A microchip discreetly integrated within the watch imparts valuable data, encompassing the owner’s identity, the timepiece’s unique serial number, Apollo 11’s historical significance, and the meteorite’s origin and meticulous analysis. The LUNAR1,622, poised to launch soon, grants patrons the choice of either Swiss (Sellita) or Japanese (Miyota) movements, and it arrives in a spectrum of options, including black or silver cases, steel or black leather straps, and even black or white rubber bands.
As the LUNAR1,622 prepares to make its cosmic debut, it stands as a beacon of horological innovation, scientific authentication, and a timeless tribute to humanity’s most celebrated sojourn to the moon.
