This may be a once in a lifetime chance to own a watch that was worn on the surface of the Moon! Dave Scott’s Apollo 15 lunar surface-worn chronograph watch will be auctioned Boston-based RR Auction. According to Bobby Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction, the watch is expected to sell for much more, somewhere between $750,000 – $1,000,000.

Forty-four years ago, David Scott’s watch broke while he was out for a walk. Somehow, the crystal that protected the wristwatch’s face popped off. Scott did not notice it had broken until after he had come back inside. Fortunately for him, he had another watch to wear. Of course, none of that would be noteworthy had Scott not been on the moon at the time.

The commander of NASA’s Apollo 15 mission, Scott was the seventh person to walk on the moon and the first to drive a car there, the lunar rover, in July 1971. He was also the first and only astronaut in history to wear a personal watch on the surface of the moon — a watch that is now heading to auction.
The Space and Aviation Autograph and Artifact Auction by RR Auction will run from October 15 through October 22.
