Thanks Nigel. I completely missed that thread but the court case seems to be more to do with Dave Scott being upset about his image being used to market the watch. It doesn't really address the name change from Moonwatch to Lunar Pilot.
I'll never buy another watch. Not until the next one.

I did see the name change of late as well Phil.
I guess the one's with the Moon Watch manual will be worth more in years to come ? I can hope sure :)

I thought it was originally called ;-

Bulova Moon Chronograph

... and is now the Lunar Pilot.

I think you are right Guy. The general public (us!) shortened it to moonwatch. Still, something has happened to effect the change.

Just checked my Bulova.

My booklet says “We are proud to introduce the Bulova MoonWatch “

So it wasn’t the public that christened it MoonWatch.

They might have changed booklet later, but mine was one of the first in UK to be ordered. In fact, the Bulova customer rep told me that I was the first customer to enquiry about it after the news articles appeared.
Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night. Be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels - Frank Sinatra
