announces the Lunar Watch, the world's first timepiece made of a solid piece of genuine moon rock. Precision cut from genuine olivine basalt stone collected from the surface of the moon by the Soviet Luna probe in 1974, this beautiful and one-of-a-kind material makes for an enviable and truly collectible timepiece. Each piece is handcrafted and built over 4 months in Switzerland in a limited quantity of 25 units.

In a special partnership with the Russian Federal Space Agency, offers this limited edition timepiece, allowing you to own, not only a piece of history, but an ancient relic from our universe's origin.

Priced at just $27,500, the rock from which the watches have been made has been measured to be 4.5 billion years old, untouched by human hands until collection in 1974, and pre-dating the very origin of life on earth.


It sounds wonderful until you look back to the Soviet lunar probes of the early 70's and discover that other than an orbiter around the moon, the Russians' only successful mission was Luna 24, an unmanned craft which collected 6 ounces of lunar regolith (space dust) in August 1976.

There's no way NASA handed their moon rocks over to the yet to be formed Russian Federal Space Agency (formed in 1992) in order for them to craft them into watches some 42 years later. Then consider that orders for the Lunar Watch begin from April 1, 2016, and you see where are coming from. Nice try, but we're not buying it! :)))
