To this day historians and watch enthusiasts alike hold its tuning fork and battery movement as one of the best time keeping apparatuses ever invented. And it was due to this precision that lead to the CIA's usage of the Astronaut in its most top secret assignments. Notably, the watch was used in development of the Leekhead A-12 spy plane and the North American X-15, the latter of which is still considered the fastest aircraft in history. Moreover, the data gathered by the X-15 was crucial in the development and success of the Apollo program, which the Accutron Astronaut would also be a part of. While today, most wearers won't be traveling faster than a bullet, sitting in a 140 F (60 C) cockpit, or spying on politically polar nations, the Accutron Astronaut is amongst the most historically rich and technologically advanced watches on Earth.
It is a watch that defies expectations, with the stats to prove it. An equity piece that will peak the interest of party goers while giving the user the best time keeping humanity has been able to muster.
