Be inspired to explore new frontiers with the limited-edition Moon Bean timepiece, the latest release in our Great Americans Series. Alan Bean, the fourth person to set foot on the Moon, was also known for painting lunar landscapes influenced by his adventures in space. In loving memory of his legacy, every detail of this limited-edition chronograph is a tribute to the artist-astronaut, including a noteworthy caseback with a textured representation of Bean's painting Kissing the Earth. The vibrant blue details of the 45mm timepiece are purposeful, reflecting the same hue as the labeling for the astronaut’s Apollo 12 belongings. As a final touch, the 19 and 20 on the date ring are also highlighted to signify the dates of Alan Bean’s arrival on the Moon and then departure: 11.19.69 and 11.20.69, respectively. In addition to the watch, the gift set includes his thoughtfully-designed book of artwork, a black nylon G10 strap and a custom pouch complete with strap-changing tools.
