Buzz's Choice - A Breitling Emergency. - Eh?

Have some fun testing your knowledge of the Omega Speedmaster at this funny page by Les Zetlein and find out .......



...... what Buzz thought of his Omega Speedmaster!

"...It was a lousy watch to have on the surface. It just didn't give good numbers as far as a stopwatch type thing. To have gone to all that expense and then to have crews out on the surface with just an ordinary watch, in retrospect, is a mistaken priority somewhere." (NASA debrief)


So what does a heroic pioneering spaceman do when he doesn't need his Speedy strapped on with Velcro to his spacesuit? Well, Buzz was spotted recently on the Muppets wearing a Breitling Emergency. So there you go, Buzz's choice.....

Don't forget the shameless Accutron ads from a few years ago. ;-)
