A Prototype Is Reborn
(radialproject) exists to bring joy to Speedmaster enthusiasts. Tested by NASA astronauts, recreated for you.
History of the Radial Bezel Prototype
The radial bezel design was produced for NASA astronauts between 1970-1978, adorned atop the coveted Alaska prototype watches. The bezel design was never put into production, and survives only in a handful of government and private collections. Until now.
Inspecting nearly piece of evidence available, we were able to faithfully recreate the original design down. Our anodized aluminum bezel insert brings the astronaut favorite into the hands of civilians for the first time.
