I posted the picture late last night and I forgot to specify that the picture's source is Omega website, news section.
I wish I would have taken the picture myself
Another thing that comes to mind about the standard equipment, do they get a watch when they have a mission assigned to them or do they keep the watch for the duration of their work with NASA? If it's only for the missions, that make a smaller amount of watches in circulation.
Omega is still one of the few to fly that high. :thumbup:
From my understanding, Omega sells the X-33 at a very reduced cost, so to a huge organisation like NASA the cost would be pocket change in comparison to it's entire budget. So I would imagine they don't keep a small handful in circulation for the astronauts are on a mission.
