STUNNING 18K GOLD OMEGA WATCH - ISSUED ONLY TO THE FIRST 26 APOLLO MOON ASTRONAUTS
There is Detailed Historical Accompanying Provenance - and the Hand Engraving on the verso was Exactly as Omega and NASA Wanted, just prior to when they were to make the Omega Presentation to The 26 Apollo Astronauts and/or their wives, at a Special Presidential Dinner in New York City, so many years ago.
AMERICA'S GOLDEN SEVEN - THE FIRST 7 PIONEER ASTRONAUTS
Note the Verso of this Superior Omega time-piece. Also, please observe that on these photographically featured shots we did find it necessary to Digitally Remove the actual Name of The Apollo Astronaut, as well as the Official number of the actual Mercury and Gemini Space Missions.
THE STUNNING APOLLO 18K GOLD WATCH - ONE OF ONLY 26 ISSUED - WAS FOR ONE OF THESE ORIGINAL 7 NASA ASTRONAUTS
However, it can and should be shared with our readers that this particular Omega 18K Apollo Watch was issued to One of the Original 7 Pioneer Astronauts. The Historic Notation on the Verso of each Omega Apollo Watch reads, in part, "To Mark Man's Conquest In Space With Time, Through Time, On Time".
Until a decison has been made to part with this Historic Omega-NASA Apollo Issue, one of only 26, this Rare Time-Piece is in The Collection of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx.
