    You need to buy some lottery tickets quick - those are high on any space watch collector’s list - including mine!

    A great addition to your collection.

    That’s interesting, never heard of one of those before.

    Do you know if NASA posts the results of anything like this on its website or is there a live feed - NASA has those on Youtube?

    Thanks...

    Yes, saw that - reckon I’d probably be in the same boat as Tony otherwise!

    I’m sticking to vintage in future.

    I’ve found it a good resource - I’ve seen so many vintage watches on there that I’d never heard of before and found lots of interesting watch modders.
