Just a couple of days prior, I detailed that the Seiko A829-A6019 was one of the ‘other’ watches that went into space. Other than the authority Omega Speedmaster Pro , Omega Speedmaster Pro X-33 and a lot of other ‘unofficial’ watches that made it there, it appears to be that Seiko was at any rate chosen by astronauts.
Former ESA space traveler – and master on the field of toughness – Wubbo Ockels actually sent me a few days ago, that the Seiko A829-A6019 (and he likewise composed there is a ‘A0’ behind this reference number) was chosen two or three space explorers and they orchestrated a decent acquisition bargain for this particular kind of watch. Besides, Wubbo Ockels referenced me the chronic number of his particular Seiko A829-A6019 (which he actually wears): 334602.
Perhaps a Seiko authority or proprietors of the Seiko A829-A6019 ‘Astronaut’ can look into their chronic numbers and perceive how far they are ‘away’ from the one that made it into orbit.
This Seiko watch utilized by ESA space explorers is a model that is hard to get in the used market. Just couple of pieces have been offered on the standard on-line sell off sites and watch commercial centers. Hope to pay a lot on the off chance that you DO discover one.
