    This one I was told was purchased at Zales in Dallas 12-24-66 by the wife of test pilot Addison Thompson. Restored by Martin Marcus in 2002.
    There are many others like it but this one is mine. John

    This Spaceview was purchased in 1966. A few years later Army Lieutenant Bruce Crockett returning from Vietnam was assigned to my office at the Watervliet Arsenal. He was a 1966 graduate from The University of Rochester busy applying to graduate schools to get his MBA. I remember he had a new Rolex. I reminded him that my Spaceview could keep better time than his Rolex. We compared time for several weeks and the result was that his Rolex could keep time just as accurate as my Spaceview as long as he wore it 24 hrs a day. Otherwise it was no contest.
    Except for battery changes and major service in 2003 this one has ran continuously since 1966 to present.

    Rusty the coffin link bracelet was an Ebay purchase a few years ago which was for the Astronaut but didn't fit.
