It’s been nearly 50 years since the world tuned in to see Neil Armstrong moonwalking behind the glimmering backdrop of space. To celebrate the monumental achievement, Swiss watchmakers RJ, formerly called Romain Jerome, is offering up the ARRAW 6919 watch, a 45mm piece embedded with bits of the actual Apollo 11 spacecraft.

The ARRAW 6919 arrives with the patented moon phase caliber RJ-2180: a 360-self-winding mechanism geared with a tiny sphere that rotates according to the moon’s 29.5-day cycle. Topped with reinforced acrylic glass, the watch comes with a bezel made up of hard composite material as well as parts from the Apollo 11. At the face is a date display, found at 3 o’clock, which helps indicate the Earth’s relative position – with a 38-hour power reserve. As a finishing touch, the back sports special sapphire crystal casing that reveals some segments of the movement.

Coming in 18-karat 5N rose gold, Grade 5 titanium and full ceramic, each model is limited to 100 pieces worldwide, priced at $43,100, $22,700 and $25,100 USD, respectively. Head over to rjwatches.com for additional details of the piece.
