Why is the female astronaut, in the red shirt, wearing a Casio watch on both wrists? The watch on her right wrist looks like a DW5600 variant, and on her left wrist a W-71 :-s

Hi Twincity,

Actually there is somewhere on the NASA pages a FAQ about why astronauts often wear two or three watches. Well, the answer is already given. Astronauts rely timer functions on watches very much. I work at a laboratory and sometimes have also two watches strapped on for the same reason.

Cheers,

Hi Alathea,

The pictures shown are from two time periods. In the past all photo's with fire arms were not allowed. Since G-Shock's and military watches are worn by active soldiers, Tribe, the military watch forum moderators and I asked for a change in rule and guideline #5.

There is an exception for pictures of a documentary nature which illustrate the actual use of watches, and which are in keeping with the general theme of the forum in which they are posted.
The second picture was posted before this addition was made.

Cheers,

Sjors
