Yeah, and it was an Omega that timed the burn that brought them back on Apollo 13.Not many folks out there who would still know how to use a watch as a compass. First learned in Boy Scouts and then reinforced in Ranger School. Those analog lads were pretty amazing fellows. I heard they even went to the moon!
Omega was awarded the Silver Snoopy award by NASA for the safe return of the Astronauts.
Also called the 14 seconds of fame.
