Inside you will find Vacheron’s lovely caliber 1003 manually wound time-only movement, and along with the sale will come a box and several presentation materials to astronaut Edgar Mitchell. This watch is one of those that always stuck with me through the years and now I am thrilled to know the rest of the story. Christie’s will offer this watch in its December 6th, NYC sale. The catalog will be available for viewing Friday, November 11, 2016. It will be available here

Also, I have been informed Mr. Shepard’s watch also made an appearance in 2016. Details here.
