Have you ever dreamed of exploring space or walking on the moon, like Neil Armstrong? If you’ve always been a space nut, you’ll want to have a look at this Apollo-inspired watch. This timepiece was designed by an aerospace engineer and has design elements from the Apollo command module itself.
You’ve got to love a wristwatch that pays homage to the space program that sent humans to the moon. And the TELEMETRY Apollo mission-inspired wristwatch is a beauty. This Apollo-inspired watch was custom designed by an aerospace engineer and Air Force veteran, so he knows a few things about space. And he’s designed this watch with a ton of cool Apollo details that any space enthusiast will adore.
Designwise, the TELEMETRY has a retro, 1960s vibe with its black and white dial, red hand, and silver case. But it has a twist: a rectangular section that imitates the typical square shape of avionics boxes. With this detail, wearers will feel as if they’re wearing a gauge from the command module on their wrist. It’s a lovely piece with many unique design features. And it’s amazing how a past design can still look so futuristic today.
It’s inspired by the space program
The creator of this watch wanted each design element to honor the Apollo space missions, right down to the color scheme. According to TELEMETRY’s Kickstarter page, the Apollo command module used dials and gauges in black and white since they were easy to read at a glance. For this reason, the creator chose black and white colors for the wristwatch’s dial. The command module also used the Futura font on all labels. Likewise, the writing on this Apollo-inspired watch features the same lettering.
Components are high-quality, yet affordable
The creator wanted to keep this wristwatch cost-effective so the team selected the Swiss Quartz Ronda 505 movement, a premium movement that’s more affordable than other high-end watch movements. They paired it with a 316L stainless steel case for its durability and beautiful shine. Also, the strap boasts premium genuine leather, which feels comfortable against your skin. With a watch this good looking (and easy to read), it’s a great gadget to start your morning.
Wear this unique timepiece in the rain
As you go about your day, you wash your hands and get caught in the rain. The makers of this Apollo-inspired watch understand this and provide built-in water resistance up to 100 m. This means you could safely swim to a depth of 100 meters while wearing TELEMETRY and it would be just fine. So you can wear this watch just about anywhere without any water damage. Now that’s a practical gadget.
Feel like you’re in the command module
The idea behind this watch is for you to feel like you’re in the Apollo command module while you’re wearing it. And with the case that’s designed to look like a gauge that’s been plucked out of the craft, you will. Likewise, the bright red hand echoes those of the gauges in the module. Really, every detail of this watch is designed to pay tribute to the most wonderful of all space missions.
Wear a watch that’s a conversation piece
You’ll turn heads and get people talking with TELEMETRY. The design is classic yet futuristic all at once. Every time you wear it, you’ll feel like the head of your own space command for a day. For the kids inside all of us, and the kids we once were, this is a watch that will satisfy your sense of discovery.
Each watch has a limited edition number
This Apollo-inspired watch is a custom design created in limited quantities. For that reason, each Limited Edition Kickstarter timepiece will be individually numbered. That way, every time you look at your TELEMETRY, you’ll know that you’re wearing a one-of-a-kind piece that not many others own. It’s a unique gadget that will have personal value for you.
The TELEMETRY Apollo mission-inspired wristwatch is a beautiful timepiece that space enthusiasts will appreciate. It honors the greatest space missions humanity has ever seen with details that echo those found in the Apollo command module. But this watch isn’t just a cool design. It’s also quite wearable with its durable materials and 100 m water resistance. So it really is a watch that you can wear every day. And with such special details, you’ll want to.
The TELEMETRY Apollo mission-inspired wristwatch costs $150, and you can preorder it on Kickstarter.
