Deke Slayton's watch 8Posted by Robert-Jan Broer on

Jason Oliver at TimeZone posted a message that the Speedmaster Pro owned by astronaut Deke Slayton was sold at some auction. You can find it here.

Here is a picture of the watch:

I hope the buyer puts on a new strap! :-) The buckle seems to be original Omega (and in the right time-period). I really doubt if I would ever sell such a personal belonging as a watch that joined me on spaceflights.
