Apollo 15 was the fourth of NASA’s six missions to land on the Moon. It was the first to feature a long duration stay on the lunar surface and there was a greater focus on science than there had been on previous missions. Most notably, it was the first mission where the Lunar Roving Vehicle was used.
The Apollo 15 mission began on July 26, 1971; the crew landed on the Moon four days later and they wouldn’t splash down until the 7th of August. The adventure had lasted more than twelve days!
The OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo 15” 40th Anniversary was created in an edition limited to 1,971 pieces.
