The Speedmaster was the first watch worn on the moon, but the space heritage continues to this very day.. In this picture you’ll see NASA astronaut Don Pettit (left), Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko (center) and European Space Agency astronaut Andre Kuipers, all ISS Expedition 30 crew members, posing for a portrait in Russia.
Focussed on watches as ever, we of course had to zoom in to see what they’re wearing. No surprise with Kononenko, wearing the Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph. André Kuipers though is wearing his second-gen Speedmaster X-33 – a proven instrument for use in outer space.
