Moon Race | Man on the Moon, 1969
Apollo 11 is the second episode of the conquest of the Moon. “Man on the Moon” represents the first man to walk on the Moon ! His astronaut’s suit is hand-engraved and coloured using a miniature painting technique. His visor is an authentic fragment of the polyimide film that protected his spacecraft. The Moon is represented by a real lunar meteorite, named Dar Al Gani 400.
The hand engravings on the bezel represent the Saturn V rocket, the famous space launcher developed in the 1960s for the moon programme.
