ANICORN’s Second NASA Watch is Inspired by the Iconic Orange Astronaut Suit #NASA
ANICORN made history earlier by selling their first batch of 60 NASA inspired watches in 60 seconds in November (model shown at bottom).
ANICORN just released a follow-up watch, marking their second official collaboration with NASA
“The ACES is a full pressure suit that began to be worn by Space Shuttle crews after STS-65, for the ascent and entry portions of flight. Introduced by the United States in 1994 to replace the Launch Escape Suit. Worn in case of an emergency bail-out over the ocean during launch or landing. The suit is a direct descendant of the U.S. Air Force high-altitude pressure suits worn by the two-man crews of the SR-71 Blackbird, pilots of the U-2 and X-15, and Gemini pilot-astronauts, and the Launch Entry Suits (LES) worn by NASA astronauts starting on the STS-26 flight, the first flight after the Challenger disaster.”
The full, carefully organized package includes the watch, an accompanying strap, a black Milanese bracelet, a NASA patch and a metal warranty plate. These will likely sell out fast even though they retail for $765, so if you’re interested, purchase one here.
Will you buy this watch? If so, post why in the comments.
