Hello Fellow Collectors. One more for the "Space" theme watches and I'll change subjects for a break...lol. This one is a little different and was produced under the name AstroTime copyrighted R. Gsell & Co. The movement was produced by Lafayette and is a seventeen(17) jewel Swiss made. The "Mystery" dial is constructed of three clear disk, each with different graphics....the Earth is the Hour hand, the Command Module is the minute hand & the Lunar Module is the second hand, all revolving around the Moon. These were produced to assimilate the Apollo Missions of the late 1960's. This piece is circa 1969 and has never seen a human wrist.
Thanks for looking,
