The Omega Speedmaster may have been the first watch worn on the moon, but it isn’t the only one. A prototype Bulova chronograph was worn by astronaut David Scott during 1971’s Apollo 15 moon mission after the crystal popped off of his Speedy, and today’s Bulova Lunar Pilot is the modern version of that historical watch. Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of the mission, Bulova is launching a special edition Lunar Pilot that’s limited to just 5,000 pieces.

The Bulova Lunar Pilot Apollo 15 50th Anniversary Watch makes several adjustments to the ever-popular standard model. First and foremost, the case has been upgraded from stainless steel to premium Grade 5 titanium, making for a watch so lightweight you’ll think you’re on the lunar surface while wearing it. A number of gold-tone accents have also been added to the watch to signify the “golden anniversary,” with the most impressive being a commemorative design relief on the caseback featuring an astronaut on the moon and details of the mission. The high-performance quartz chronograph watch comes in a special themed box with a commemorative coin and booklet and is available from Bulova for $995.

Purchase: $995
