Bulova Accutron Astronaut Limited Edition Reissue watch celebrating the landmark technology
of the original Accusation Astronaut of the 60's. This updated Swiss-made timepiece, with
precision GMT movement, commemorates the company's revolutionary original Accutron and
its pivotal role in aeronautical history.
The original Accutron Astronaut paid tribute to this important relationship, incorporating
the aviation must of a dual-time GMT movement including a 24-hour scale as well as an
independent 12-hour reading. Inspired by this breakthrough design, the new Accutron
Astronaut limited edition, with the superb ETA 2893-2 automatic, mechanical 21-jewel
GMT movement, features a dedicated red-tipped 24-hour hand and anodized 24-hour bezel
ring shaded to differentiate between day and night readings. Crafted of stainless steel,
with domed sapphire crystal, luminous hands and markers, locking deployment buckle
closure, and water resistance to 100 meters, each of these extraordinary timepieces
includes a secure four-screw exhibition case back, numbered to show each piece's
position within the limited 1000 piece run, and is accompanied by a Certificate
In a very special commemoration of Accutron's pioneering role in space technology, the
case back of every Accutron Astronaut limited edition is etched with the signature
endorsement of former astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Well-acquainted with Accutron timing
during his years at NASA, Dr. Aldrin, the long-time Accutron spokesperson, installed an
Accutron timer on the Moon during the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969.
