Coming to outer space next year, it’s the return of the worm. NASA’s old-school worm logo is returning to active duty for the upcoming Artemis moon mission in 2022, 30 years after its 1992 retirement. To celebrate its resurrection, original worm logo designer Richard Danne has teamed up with Anicorn to create a limited edition watch with loads of retro style.
The Anicorn NASA Watch is the only timepiece to have ever been designed by the now-90-year-old Danne, and it exhibits the same ‘60s-era retro-futuristic flair as his most famous work. Naturally, the watch proudly displays the worm logo on the dial, but it does so in an unconventional way. The text appears on a black center disk, and it’s the only text on the dial. An empty space surrounds the logo where two small rotating circles that look like heavenly bodies represent the hour and minute hands. The watch is powered by an automatic Miyota caliber 9015 movement and is water-resistant to 50m. Available in an all-black colorway or natural stainless steel with a black bezel, the Anicorn Richard Danne NASA Watch is limited to 300 units total worldwide and will go on sale on June 29.
