Fascinating, Gary. It marks the 10th anniversary so I’m assuming that the watch dates from 1975 or thereabouts.

A little qualification is needed, however. Ed White performed the first American EVA in June 1965 on Gemini 4.

Alexei Leonov, Soviet cosmonaut, had performed an EVA on Voskhod 2 some three months earlier. The watch dates from the height of the Cold War, so it was probably convenient to forget that.

That’s an interesting case back. Not sure what the picture of Radner Daltrey swinging his microphone has to do with a spacewalk though.....

So it does! That gave them another 30 years to find out about Leonov, then. :lol:
