Space Shuttle Atlantis Tribute - Stainless Steel, Blue Dial
The Space Shuttle Atlantis flew 33 missions into space This exceptional timepiece is a tribute to the Atlantis and features a precision machined stainless steel case and displays an original space-flown artifact flown aboard the Atlantis. The movement is a precision Swiss made chronograph with a Super Luminova dial protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This design is limited to 1996 units in honor of the year the material displayed in the watch case was flown in space on STS-79, orbiting the earth 160 times and traveling 3.9 million miles.
I am a huge fan of this watch. This is my first Bristol Aviation Watch, but I am confident that it will not be my last. To say that I am a space enthusiast would be putting it mildly. When I saw that there was a watch with a piece of a space shuttle in it, I had to get one. I am more than pleased with the quality of the watch. It has a great weight and feel. It definitely catches the eye, as well. I have had several compliments on it. The packaging is excellent as well. I look forward to my next watch purchase!
Very pristine look. Love the uniqueness and piece of history exclusive to these watches and limited to each category which makes them even more special and valuable!
The watch keeps great time, looks good with casual & business attire and is fun when explaining the watch has pieces of history that’s been around (outside) the world...literally!
Highly recommend this watch.
