Over fifty years ago, man landed on the moon for the very first time. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins were the crew of the Apollo 11 mission, with Armstrong and Aldrin descending to the moon’s surface in the lunar module, named Eagle. As soon as the lunar module touched down, and Armstrong and Aldrin had completed their checklist, Armstrong sent the famous message back to mission control: “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” From there, it was just one small step outside. And, the rest they say, is history.
The Liberty Coin Watch celebrates this historic moment in both American and human history. The watch face is the obverse of a genuine Walking Liberty half-dollar that has been skillfully cut cross-sectionally, showcasing the American Bald Eagle. Minted from 1916 to 1947, and made of 90% silver, Art historian Cornelius Vermeule called it “one of the greatest coins of the United States—if not the world.” With a classic black leather strap, polished stainless steel construction and a coin edged bezel, our watchmaker has transformed this watch into a true collector’s piece.
The moon landing was an incredible achievement in multiple ways— the science, the ambition, the iron will against great odds, the technical expertise, and finally the sheer skill to land the Eagle on the lunar surface. To commemorate this unprecedented event that secured our Nation’s leadership in space for generations to come, you’re invited to join the mission of celebrating man’s first steps on the moon with a timepiece worthy of such a groundbreaking achievement.
