This Col&MacArthur Lunar Watch Contains Actual Moon Dust
A NASA-approved timepiece for stylish space aficionados.
The catch? There isn’t one, but the NASA-approved tech watch has a few things going for it that your average timepiece doesn’t: Namely, it’s embedded with actual moon dust from a 2017 Northwest Africa meteorite.
The exceptionally cool timepiece, which is adorned with the NASA logo on the caseback, is the second from the watchmaker’s INTERSTELLAR Collection, comes complete with a certificate of authenticity from MSG Meteorites.
Talk about truly next-level wrist candy, one that Col&MacArthur says “boasts a robust composition of semi-noble materials,” including a steel and titanium dial body topped with sapphire glass.
There’s a standard version, powered by a Miyota movement and featuring a real footprint shape replica of none other than Neil Armstrong.
The premium version, meanwhile, features a Swiss Sellita automatic movement, a traceable chip with dedicated data (namely, the owner’s name, serial number, and a detailed meteorite analysis), and a titanium case design.
The watch is yet another leap forward for Col&MacArthur, said founder Sebastien Colen.
“Since Col&MacArthur’s inception in 2013, our vision has always been to revolutionize watchmaking. Today, with LUNAR1,622 we’ve taken another significant stride towards that dream,” Colen said.
If early results are any indication, the latest INTERSTELLAR watch is soaring into the stratosphere: It’s raised more than $204,000 already via Kickstarter.
