Rolex GMT Master Apollo XIII

Rolex GMT Master Apollo Jack Swigert April 11, 1970 Apollo XIII

Although not a NASA certified space watch the GMT Master proved it had the ‘right stuff’ when Jack Swigert wore his Rolex GMT Master on the Apollo XIII mission in April 1970.

It was also worn by Ron Evans, Mission Command Module Pilot of Apollo XVII and  Ed Mitchell of the Apollo XIV misssion also wore his Rolex GMT Master on the moon.

So we can safely say that it is a worthy inclusion on the list of space watches, not only does it have some impressive space credentials but the GMT Master was also worn by Chuck Yeager when he was the first person to pilot a fixed wing plane to the speed of sound, when no one knew whether a plane, or a human could endure such forces!
