Buzz Aldrin, during his mission to the moon, astronaut Buzz Aldrin wore a quality replica Omega Speedmaster watch on his wrist, also making the watch the first to ever be worn on the moon.
The AAA perfect fake watch is now dubbed the ‘Moon Watch‘ and was worn as Aldrin made the Apollo 11 moonwalk alongside Commander Neil Armstrong in 1969 after it met the requirements held by NASA to attempt the mission.
Aldrin may have chosen his watch due to its stealthy durability which has been proved by the many adventurers that have worn it before him, including pilots and explorers.
The model chosen by Aldrin was the Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster ST105.012, which featred a 42mm case and a calibre 321 and mysteriously disappeared after he followed protocol and sent it to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington to be displayed.
It is possible that today the watch would be sold for millions at auction if it were to ever turn up.
