Description

Lunar Pilot Chronograph

Sometimes known as “the other moon watch”, the original Bulova Lunar Pilot Chronograph was worn to the moon by Astronaut David Scott. Scott wore the watch on the Apollo 15 mission in 1971. For a fascinating, brilliantly researched article on the original watch, read more here on Worn & Wound.

Bulova’s modern interpretation of the watch has a high-performance quartz movement. With a frequency of 262 kHz, it operates at a higher frequency than most quartz or mechanical movements. This results in increased precision.

Case & Dial

With a 45mm stainless steel case, the Bulova Lunar Pilot Chronograph is a sizeable watch. However, with gently curving case contouring, it is comfortable to wear. Additionally, the chronograph pushers are shaped to follow the shape of the case. This is true to the original watch and is a nice detail. Finally, the caseback has engraving which commemorates the Apollo 15 mission. The black dial is multi-level which adds depth. There is a tachymetre scale around the outside edge which is stepped up from the centre of the dial. In keeping with the original, the Bulova logo is the version from the 70’s.

Strap

The Bulova Lunar Pilot Chronograph is fitted with a black leather strap with a texture that looks like carbon fibre. However, the watch is also supplied with an additional strap in black nylon. This has a nubuck leather patch that commemorates the date of the mission to the moon: 08021971.

Bulova and Apollo 15

Founded in 1875 by Joseph Bulova, this famous American brand has a long history of innovation. They collaborated with NASA on 46 space missions. Additionally, a Bulova timer was even placed on the sea of tranquility during the first moon walk. The Bulova Lunar Pilot Chronograph commemorates the Apollo 15 mission which was the fourth to land on the moon. It is a functional, well constructed chronograph with fascinating history attached. Covered by a three year warranty, peace of mind is guaranteed.

    Unfortunately one of the quick-release watchstraps in my delivery was defective. I contacted Suzie, who immediately offered to send a replacement. The replacement arrived a few days later. I am very happy with both of my purchases from watch specialists.
