The Lunar Pilot Chronograph was inspired by large meteoroids that fall to Earth and collide with the Earth in the form of meteoroids during meteor showers in space. The Lunar Pilot Chronograph is an integral part of space exploration in the United States, and has a long history with NASA. This is an upgraded version of the original Bulova watch that went to the moon.

The dial, which is the first for the brand to feature a meteorite across its entire surface, uses the Muonionarsta meteorite, which is believed to have fallen to Earth around 4.5 billion years ago. The unique and varied crystal patterns created by the “Widmanstätten structure” are very unique, creating a one-of-a-kind six-hand chronograph dial.

The three sub-dials include a 1/20 second chronograph at 3 o'clock, small seconds at 6 o'clock, and a 60-minute counter at 9 o'clock. The thin hands and indexes are coated with luminescent paint to provide excellent visibility, making it possible to read the time even at the darkness.

The case size is the same as the original, 43.5mm, and the case is made of grade 5 titanium with polished finishes, giving it a lightweight and dynamic presence on your wrist.

The movement is equipped with Bulova's unique high-precision quartz movement. It achieves high accuracy with a monthly difference of ±5 seconds, and is also equipped with a sweeping chronograph hand.

The case back is engraved with a design inspired by the moon landing, the anniversary of the Apollo 15 moon landing on August 2, 1971, and a limited edition serial number. The belt is made of soft leather that feels soft against your skin, and comes with a latch-type spring bar, so you can easily replace it yourself.

It comes in a special package that includes a storybook and limited edition cards, priced at 198,000 yen. Below is a summary of the special advanced exhibition, so if you are interested, please visit it.
